This paper provides a first account of1 the Building the Internet Workforce project. A number of further papers are planned. An outline of the project's progress and outcomes is provided and the WEBWORKFORCE Learning Repository, a major deliverable of the project, is described. Theoretical perspectives about learning objects and their reuse, storage and retrieval are discussed and an outline of requirements gathering is given. The learning repository system supports the development of emergent cataloguing structures that closely resemble specialist library models. These structures provide contextual support for the Learning objects to be archived and retrieved thus enhancing their access and reusability. Examples of information structures presented via the user interface are provided. The structures feature rich contextualisation based on curriculum and body-of-knowledge frameworks.
