In its initial form, CyberStacks(sm) has been implemented as a selected collection of local or remote electronic publications or resources which have been organized within a subject classification system used by libraries.
We believe that the structure, organization, descriptions and access provided by CyberStacks(sm) offer the user a catalog of a collection as well as the collection itself. CyberStacks(sm) may be viewed as the convergence, merger and fusion of a catalog and an associated collection.
