    The development of hybrid collections of physical and electronic resources presents a challenge for library users who wish to browse physical and e-resource collections. At Macquarie University Library the ability to browse electronically has become particularly important with the implementation of our Automated Retrieval Collection, which will store 80% of our print collections. In seeking for a way to improve the browsing capabilities for our physical collections that would also extend to our electronic resources we created a ‘virtual bookshelf’, which integrates both our physical and electronic collections in a call number display.
