Summary

The Wyoming Academic Libraries Resource Project was initiated to improve cooperation and resource sharing by developing an interconnected information access and delivery system among Wyoming's academic libraries and the State Library. The goal was to formalize communication, cooperation, and resource sharing by developing an Ariel document delivery system. The project was also designed to increase Internet knowledge, skills, and expertise of library personnel to maximize Ariel technology. The report is divided into nine sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Launching the Project; (3) Internet Training Workshops and Outcomes; (4) Ariel Workstation Installations, Training, and Evaluation; (5) Task Force Assignments and Accomplishments; (6) Gateway Activities and Network Expansion; (7) Expanded Project; (8) Project Visibility; and (9) Project Outcomes. While the Wyoming Academic Libraries Resource Project was designed to focus on the state's academic population, the result was a rapid document delivery system that impacts the entire population of Wyoming. The project is representative of a genuine willingness to participate in resource sharing initiatives among the University of Wyoming Libraries, eight community colleges, the Wyoming State Library, and numerous county and branch public libraries. For Wyoming's academic and many public libraries, the barriers of remoteness and isolation are coming down and the technology gaps have narrowed. (SWC)
