> July 2003
> News about the project "The European Library (TEL) - The Gate to Europe's
> Knowledge" (www.europeanlibrary.org) 
> The short report on the 2nd European Library Seminar / 3rd Gabriel
> Workshop is now available!
> As global networks grow in significance it is getting more important to
> share knowledge and standards. By combining the resources of some of
> Europe's national libraries the idea of a single European Library has
> moved a step closer to becoming a reality. The European Library (TEL), a
> 36-month co-operative project of Key Action 3 of the Information Society
> Technologies (IST) research programme will provide the groundwork on which
> to build a pan-European service.
> Since its foundation in 1997 Gabriel, the World Wide Web service of the
> European national libraries, has established itself as the official
> network service of the Conference of European National Librarians (CENL)
> and has undergone a continuous development. The Gabriel website has been
> redesigned and restructured and it was relaunched in summer 2002. At
> present, 41 libraries from 39 European countries are represented in
> Gabriel. Via Gabriel access to varied information sources and numerous
> online-catalogues and services by the European national libraries is
> offered. Gabriel is the only trans-European library service.
> Gabriel will play an important role in the development of TELService, an
> integrated search and service facility to be developed after the end of
> the project phase of TEL. The project is now in its final year and this
> seemed to be a good occasion to bring together all those who are involved
> in Gabriel to present intermediate results of TEL, to exchange
> experiences, and to discuss the further development of Gabriel and the
> integration with the eventual TELService.
> The short workshop report is now available on the project website
> www.europeanlibrary.org, there Workshops/Conferences -> June 2003.
> A long version of the report will be provided later in July 2003.
