English abstract

Nelli is a new way to use the library. It organises and retrieves information as well as providing tailored services. The Nelli information retrieval portal can be used to manage all the information materials necessary in research, teaching and studying. It is an interface through which researchers, students and the public can access libraries’ acquired data resources. Minister of Education Tuula Haatainen will open the national Nelli information retrieval portal for the use of Finnish universities’ customers on 15 September 2004. Public libraries, polytechnics, as well as special schools and research institutes will be able to use Nelli later. Nelli belongs to everyone. The University of Helsinki, the National Library of Finland, working jointly with Finnish universities, is responsible for the start-up of the Nelli information retrieval portal. Powered by ExLibrix’s MetaLib and SFX software, Nelli’s services can be tailored locally; each university can configure Nelli services to meet its customers’ needs. Nelli is a tool for researchers that provides: high quality content and information retrieval services from a single source, metasearches enabling the simultaneous searching of several databases with a single command, linking services, management of customer identification and user rights, tailoring of interfaces, customer-specific settings. The combination of the Virtual University and the Nelli information retrieval portal exploits electronic services to enhance the effectiveness of the learning environment.
