The project MyLibrary@ETH was launched in January 2003 by the ETH Library (ETH = Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in order to offer users a personalised library portal. The central goal of this project was to give users easy access to the library's extensive electronic resources. Although there is a strong focus on the library's electronic information sources, users should also be able to include non-library content. The new tool allows the scientist or researcher to manage all electronic resources required to support his or her work. In order to offer users an easy starting point, a selection of default pages was defined according to the needs of different target groups. Starting from one of these default pages, users are able to refine their personal pages to meet their specific requirements. This practice ensures that only a minimum amount of time and effort is required for the construction of a personal page.
