The CAVAL member libraries believe that the major issue confronting libraries at the start of the New Millennium is collection development. These Libraries have been committed to the achievement of VADL for the past twelve months. VADL will be a Digital Library which will be shared and yet reflect the interests of each of the discipline interests of the member universities. VADL has established a range of research into the shape and extent of existing collections within Victoria. This paper highlights the path taken by these libraries, how their response differs from the American experience and how collaboration can be achieved through a new service model.
