The British Library's on-line catalogue is now, as
of today, available on the WWW at


You can search for books and periodicals in a variety of
ways. There's also plenty of information about the
collections. You can order photocopies of periodical
articles on line, but you will have to pay.

Portico (http://portico.bl.uk/), the BL's information server, gives lots
of information about the BL, its collections, services etc.

Gabriel (http://portico.bl.uk/gabriel/en/welcome.html) gives access
to Europe's national libraries.
