Summary

Many campus networks provide the infrastructure necessary for providing patrons with ubiquitous access to a wide range of information from their desktops with easy-to-use interfaces, in a cost-effective manner. The components of such a system could include: electronic awareness products which would allow faculty to stay abreast of new work in their areas of interest; access to electronic full text and abstracts for all users; and document delivery for those articles which can not be accessed in a direct manner. This paper first provides an overview of the services that are available, that provide one of these three types of services. Following that, issues to confront while implementing this service are discussed, with examples of how different products would solve these issues differently. These issues include: costs; local versus remote access; user acceptance of the changes; shifting of personnel that may be required; shifting of costs that may be required; and integration of services and user interface issues. Finally, a number of issues relating to implementing this type of change on campus is examined. A Presentors Index is included at the end of the paper. (AEF)
