Abstract

The National Agricultural Library NAL, the North Carolina State UniversityNCSU Libraries, and the NCSU Computing Center are collaborating on a research and demonstration project to identify and investigate issues involved in a networked, computerbased document delivery system for library materials. The project uses scanned images of documents to generate highly detailed, machinereadable page images, and transmits those images through the data transmission capabilities of the NSFnetInternet to computers located in libraries, in research areas, and on scholars' desks at agricultural research stations and extension offices throughout the United States. By using commercial, graphicscapable, networked hardware platforms combined with commercial and public domain software, a nonproprietary, computerbased document delivery system should be within the reach of the land grant library community by the mid1990s.
