  3. Portal implementation issues and challenges
    • Description: If you think librarianship is about the collection, organization, preservation, and dissemination of information and knowledge, then implementing a library portal will be easy. On the other hand, if you think librarianship is about books, subscriptions, MARC records and AACR2, or integrated library systems -- the physical manifestations of traditional libraries -- then you will have a hard time. This essay outlines some of the challenges of creating a library portal, and in summary, the keys to overcoming the challenges are not technological. The keys are philosophical and interpersonal. Once you have a clear, shared vision of what the portal is intended to accomplish the rest falls into place.
