The VALA Travel Scholarship study trip undertaken in mid 2005 investigated a range of webcasting, streaming and webconferencing solutions that have been implemented in North America and UK. The tour included visits to a range of libraries, museums and galleries using these services. The paper reports on the services and the implications of these technologies for libraries. The technologies present new service delivery opportunities for libraries in Australia and also provide options for professional staff development.
