Abstract

The 1990's saw a fervour of cooperative R&D activity within the European libraries community as a result of the so-called Telematics for Libraries Programme of the European Commission. Pat Manson was a member of the small team of Commission staff in Luxemburg responsible for initiating and guiding these activities. This article describes the Programme, its importance and the role of Pat Manson and her director Ariane Iljon in its success.
