-- EARL (UK) The UK national public libraries internet initiative.
EARL is a consortium which provides a framework for partnership, and
aims to improve networked information services, internet access,
resource sharing and collaboration between public libraries in the UK.
The consortium has established 17 task groups which are partner based
initiatives, exploring technical, subject and policy issues relating
to internet services and access.

openbare bibliotheek Eindhoven, The Netherlands) Contact: Jos Geevers
Tel: +31 40 24 46 715 Fax: + 31 40 24 61 225 Philips Corporate Design,
together with Philips Media, was commissioned by Philips Nderland to
co-operate with the City of Eindhoven and Eindhoven's Public Library
to investigate possible improvements to the services offered by the
public library that would be enabled by the introduction of
'multimedia technologies',Intranet, Infowall and Info tables. Within
this project we approached the library as one system consisting of
multiple functionality. That is, the library was evaluated by
designers, library employees, and library users as one product. This
'one system' approach was essential to the integration, consistency,
and functionality of the library tools. Tomorrow's public library
system will provide the frame work for an information-rich society
where individuals are independent of the cost and accessibility of
newly developed information and communication technology. It will
expand its traditional function as the social centre of information by
providing the public with a easily accessible route to the rapidly
evolving world of electronic information.

site for schoolchildren outside of school hours * expand the IT skills

Companies in this countries providing teleservices are welcome, too.
Project Goals: The major goal of the project is to link the village
and the inhabitants - mainly women with children, eldery people and
the farmes - via networks to more central regional economies. The
