The National Library of Australia is undertaking a number of initiatives aimed at improving the infrastructure that provides access to information resources by Australian libraries and their users. It is giving priority to developing infrastructure services which will benefit the general public by providing them with online access to a greater range of content and providing them with easy-to-use services to discover and access information content, including the collections of Australian libraries. The paper describes some of these activities, including the recently completed Kinetica Redevelopment Project.
