In order to meet this increased demand for services, local studies libraries have had to transform their collection strategies, the range of materials they provide and their ways of giving the public greater access. Widespread use of electronic systems has facilitated the linkage of materials in holdings of all types from the current records held by local authority services to historic archives held by local history societies and other organizations.
