Norwich CC, Norwich city and the University of East Anglia have joined with local business organisations to rebuild the gutted Norwich central library complete with the latest electronic technology, reports The Independent (p21).

The new services will include dial-up access to the library's databases, including information on local and national government and EU services, perhaps from rural telecottages, schools and people's own homes. Every desk will have facilities for PCs; a public call box will be available for using the Internet.

Tim Anderson of Norwich City Council says: 'This is an opportunity to recreate a library for the next century, extending it into cyberspace.'
