Title
Towards a virtual reality library

Abstract
It is argued that the current generation of online catalogues do not meet basic user expectations about how to search for information. After a brief examination of virtual reality and its associated technology, a new form of online catalogue, the 'virtual reality library' is proposed. Users browse an information space, a computer-controlled set of shelf orderings for items. Its form, workings and design are investigated in detail. The concept of the virtual reality library is then applied to information resources which either have no physical repository or have one which is not accessible to users
