Abstract

Macquarie University Library has endeavoured to create an environment that facilitates the integration of library resources into course specific content. This paper contains an overview of the creation of Macquarie University Library's portal prototype. We argue that a web presence composed of portlets is a user focused method of delivering dynamic content on demand and as such is far superior in a learning environment. The Library portal prototype combines the Library's need to be integrated into the wider University community with the changing expectations of our primary users.
