Abstract:This paper describes the design and continuing development of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library Information Workstation, which provides the primary, in-library patron access to ILLINET Online Plus, the Library's extended online public access catalog system. The automated library information resources and information processing environment are briefly described as they have influenced the design and development of the Library Information Workstation. The Library Information Workstation philosophy and approach are discussed in the context of relevant information access issues and patron needs and requirements. Features of the current Library Information Workstation implementation are then described using illustrations focused particularly on integrated access to local (resident on individual workstations) information files and an integrated enduser interface for bibliographic database searching. Ongoing development plans also are discussed briefly.
