Abstract

The Global Resources Program (GRP) seeks to improve access to international research materials through cooperative structures and the use of new technology. GRP, a joint initiative of the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has launched six projects to test varying models of access. The six projects are in different stages of development and have different levels of North American and international participation. All projects share common challenges and potential barriers. This paper reviews these challenges and barriers and suggests strategies to overcome them. The realization that North American research libraries are no longer able to collect comprehensively provides an opportunity for the global interlibrary loan and document supply community to provide access to and delivery of materials needed by scholars and researchers, regardless of location of the material or the scholar.

Abstract

The AAU/ARL (Association of American Universities/Association of Research Libraries) Japan Journal Access Project seeks to expand access to research materials published in Japan, and to coordinate collection development activities of Japanese‐language material held by North American research libraries. Established in 1994, the focus of the Japan Project has evolved from providing access to scientific and technical serials published in Japan to providing access to Japanese language materials held by Japanese and North American libraries. The Union List of Japanese Serials and Newspapers and the Association of National University Libraries (ANUL) and Waseda document‐delivery projects have emerged as key activities. Collaborative collection development remains an important, but unrealized, goal. Suggestions for future developments are made.

Abstract

Examines the nature, background, development, testing, advantages, and creative uses of Ariel, a software package that can send, receive and print images of documents via the Internet. Compares the capabilities of Ariel to fax transmissions. Surmises that Ariel offers benefits of higher resolution, telecommunications charges, transmission time, and flexibility, giving it the potential to become de facto standard for image transmission and to reduce turnaround time.
