Abstract

This paper examines the origins and activities of SLISNET - an international network of Schools of Librarianship and Information Sciences, established by UNESCO in 1995 as an experiment in collaboration across the Internet. SLISNET has a Web site, a discussion list, and members committed to various other activities to develop teaching and research related to the electronic library environment. The paper puts the aims and activities of the network in the broader context of collaboration between Schools, and international technical cooperation programmes. Using the aims of these activities, it reviews SLISNET's progress to date, and proposes some suggestions for future development.
