The first Mailing lists were set up in early 1990.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/mailbase" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 feature article elaine blair newcastle university university of birmingham archives copyright higher education html mailbase research standards url web services Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 606 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Tolimac: 'Smart Card People Are Happy People' http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/tolimac <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue20/tolimac#author1">Sally Rumsey</a> explains a pilot electronic document delivery service at the University of Surrey Library.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p align="JUSTIFY">As networked information services continue to expand, libraries need to reinforce their key intermediary role between information providers and end users to achieve a double objective: facilitate user access to electronic services distributed through the Internet and guarantee payment to providers.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue20/tolimac" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue20 feature article sally rumsey university of surrey access control adobe authentication cataloguing copyright database internet explorer privacy research search technology Mon, 21 Jun 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 607 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
