This chapter discusses the e-Discovery oriented philosophy of ABCD as a library system and the possibilities offered by the ABCD-Site, such as the meta-search, integrating external databases into the ABCD-database environment, easy inclusion of all sorts of links to e-resources and widgets (e.g. Google Scholar) with sample applications. The chapter will be based on the statement that actually the whole ABCD-system technology is built on the philosophy of e-Discovery as implemented by e.g. the ‘Virtual Health Library' in Latin America rather than as a ‘library system'. In this way the system represents a ‘modern library'.
