The Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB)’s mission is to connect people and information. One of its core responsibilities is to deliver digital scientific information to end-users, focusing on on-line access and services. A significant number of documents, however, is only available to specific user groups (e.g. library members, students or researchers), or only remotely accessible by paying a fee. This paper will discuss an approach to delivering information that focuses on creating on-line access to relevant scientific information to remote end-users. This integral vision is currently realized in two pilot projects, in cooperation with Dutch public libraries, research institutes and publishers.
