Argues that the hybrid nature of collection development (electronic and print) requires a corresponding hybridised system of collection exploitation. Proposes a model for the exploitation of hybrid cultural collections that draws on ethnographic principles. Provides an example of this model - a “cultural map” - that enables librarians, users and researchers to make sense of the complex interactions that take place between the various elements of such hybrid collections.
