Purpose – In August 2004, the Library Collections and Systems team at Lehigh University released MyLibrary @ Lehigh within the campus portal to the university community. The purpose of this article is to explain how what began as an integration strategy of the library's electronic resources into one complete stand-alone application became the library's response to the fast-growing campus portal.

Design/methodology/approach – Explains how MyLibrary@Lehigh was developed and implemented.

Findings – It became evident during its development and integration stages that MyLibrary@Lehigh would greatly enhance the success and usage of the campus portal. As a repository of all of the library's electronic resources, MyLibrary@Lehigh has become the one-stop shop for the library within the campus-wide, one-stop shop of the campus portal.

Originality/value – MyLibrary has become a clear choice as an open-source solution.
