Abstract

The complexity of today's information environment is resulting in the creation of unified front ends to library resources called gateways. A gateway. consists of a set of interrelated tools that enables library users to identify and locate materials relevant to · their study and research. The tools are presented in a common structure or framework that facilitates the rapid identification of and navigation to the material. A gateway may include the catalog, supplemental databases to online resources, tools that link citation databases with online content, real time assistance, and help or user guidance components.
