In 2001, JISC research project INSPIRAL investigated nontechnical, institutional and end user issues involved in linking information resource provision and elearning in UK higher education. Stakeholder communities were identified and surveyed. Prior research and developments, current practice and thinking, and future plans were investigated. The resulting learner-centred vision for the future also identified success factors for and barriers to an integrated online learning environment. Four case studies offered exemplars of good practice for information professionals and other stakeholders. Overcoming inter-professional difficulties through high-level strategy and collaboration, supported by learner-centred evaluation, and driven by proactive library participation, is key to success.
