Today's university students have now, and will have in the future, greater information needs than ever before. As end‐users, they will take the skills they learn and the knowledge about the resources used to fill those needs with them into the workplace and beyond. In an effort to provide undergraduates at the University of Maryland with these skills, the University of Maryland System (UMS) solicited proposals for projects to enhance undergraduate education. In July 1994, The Council of Library Directors was awarded three year funding for their proposal for implementation of access to 150 DIALOG Classroom Instruction Program (CIP) files, part of the online database service of Knight‐Ridder Information Inc., using the UMS online public access catalogue as a gateway to these files. The University of Maryland System consists of 13 academic institutions situated throughout the state of Maryland. This project is being implemented by four of those institutions, refecting differences in demographics, geography and academic disciplines. They include a large, urban research university; a suburban university with concentrations in science and engineering; an urban non‐traditional university of upper‐level undergraduates majoring in business and pre‐law; and a rural university with various majors, including education and business.
