Summary

The PICKLE Consortium of independent college libraries (Nebraska) has acquired the ARIEL system of hardware and compression software designed to transfer print materials via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) over the Internet. This development follows on the heels of a 1989 fax grant which was used to cooperatively develop the libraries' journal collections and to deliver articles via telefacsimile. The aging fax machines use telephone lines, heat-transfer paper, and require a copy to be made and then discarded after transmission. ARIEL allows for a superior quality of copy at the receiving end and the speed of the Internet, resulting in lowered costs per article transmitted. The copy is scanned directly from the document to be sent, thus eliminating the costs of copying and paper. The workstation consists of a personal computer, scanner, laser printer, and the ARIEL software. The paper provides detailed ARIEL system requirements and includes a list of PICKLE consortium members, addresses, and telephone numbers. (Author/SWC)
