Our study will emphasize the use of GIS, audio and video based Internet publishing tools as key elements in the expansion of the scope and reach of the Internet as a public information vehicle. The global Internet has made possible the creation of a digital library which permits scientific, technical and humanities publications to exist within a global environment, with peer review and public access possible worldwide. What was once only a memory of the great library at Alexandria and all that it represented is now a reality on the global network.
