This paper presents an approach to develop and to integrate highly diverse resources in learning spaces via presonalizable interfaces and virtual collaboration areas. The diversity of these interfaces, plus the volume and dynamism of the digital content's underlying collections, results in a complexity that has the potential to make the digital library unwieldy for the user.In order to assist users in dealing with this complexity, we are designing environments, termned collaborative virtual spaces, which provide users with means to access and control all available resources in a uniform fashion from a single vantage point. We discuss our ongoing design and development experiences.
