This paper based on a study visit made in May 1999, generously sponsored by the VALA Travel Scholarship program, reports on developmental projects that seek to aid library users to efficiently discover and locate information resources. In the current information landscape, where resources exist in a variety of formats, the goal is to develop systems that seamlessly integrate the globally distributed content. The report includes descriptions of the most promising UK eLib program funded research projects into Hybrid Library Systems and some of the Digital Library Initiatives in USA Universities. It also identifies and provides links to other international research on creating Digital Library Systems.
