The Library Linkages Initiative promotes the use and creation of real time information sharing services. Within this initiative are projects which seek to provide up-to-date technical information in a timely manner to a user community which is diverse in its needs and geographical distribution. This includes distribution of material through networked interconnection, development of regional databases, and improved availability of materials for education and research. LibLink aims to modernize document delivery, to broaden electronic availability of research materials, to upgrade the information system skills of library staff and users, and to encourage joint hemispheric research on Digital Research Libraries. To meet these goals, projects rely on sister efforts in telecommunications, computers, and advanced education exchange programs.
