The management of autonomous, heterogeneous network resources and services provides new challenges which libraries are now addressing. This paper outlines an approach based on the construction of broker services which mediate access to resources. It outlines a framework - the MODELS Information Architecture - for thinking about the components of broker services and their logical arrangement. It describes several development projects and services which show how brokers are developing.
