A major European library technology development is launched today at a meeting in Solihull of partners from five EU member states.

The project, called LISTED - Library Integrated System for Telematics-based Education - is designed to make technology-based open learning easily available in public libraries.

A small team under the project leader Bob McKee, assistant chief executive of Solihull MBC, has been working with partners and the European Commission over the past six months to bring the scheme to fruition. Around £800,000 of EU funding will contribute to the project cost.

Chelmsley Wood library in Solihull will be on one of six European test sites, the others being in Spain, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland and Wales.

More widespread benefits are expected to emerge as the partners apply the lessons of Europe-wide investigations into the most appropriate technology for library users and the developmental needs of library staff. One signigicant product emerging from the programme will be a new piece of interactive software to enable individuals to search out and use computer based training materials to match their own needs.
