Knowledge and information are increasingly imparted audio-visually. Libraries are bound to change into hybrid multimedia libraries as a consequence of the media technological development. All faculties have to be granted an online access to audio-visual contents in addition to the collection of audio-visual media on data carriers. In order to ensure access to audio-visual collections, high-definition formats and digital audio-visual contents via video-on-demand, it is necessary to create extensive financial, infrastructural and legal pre-conditions. This is the only way that libraries will be able to fulfil their function now and in future and to offer access to cultural heritage in its dynamic diversity.
