Title
¬The emergence of systemwide electronic access to information sources : the experience of two California State University libraries
Source
Reference librarian. 1993, no.39, S.111-130

Abstract
Early in 1992, the Chancellor's Office of the California State University, Division of Library Affairs, offered several online systems at very low costs to its constituency. This decision was based on at least a year of extensive research and negotiations on the part of the Chancellor's Office with producers of various products. The idea was to purchase systemwide subscriptions at educational discounts with the long-range goal of encouraging individual institutions to cancel some of their CD-ROM products and thus save money. The first year of this project was to serve as a trial period with low rates, which presumably would increase should the project be successful and adopted. Electronic information systems installes were LEXIS/NEXIS, Carl Uncover and FirstSearch. Simultaneously, several electronic offerings were made available through Internet. This paper describes the experiences of two of the CSU campuses: California State Universities, Fullerton and San Bernadino. Discussion will cover the integration of these products into existing services, the positive and negative effects of these new systems on public service, and the overall impact of the new technology on reference librarians and support staff
