Title
Remote reference assistance for electronic information resources over networked workstations
Source
Library hi tech. 12(1994) no.1, S.77-86
Year
1994
Abstract
Libraries and the information community have moved rapidly into an era of powerful networked scholarly workstations, large quantities of information accessible in electronic formats, and dispersed information sources connected to regional and national networks. This rich diversity poses new challenges for the provision of appropriate reference services. The University of Texas at Austin General Libraries successfully implemented and tested a prototype solution to the problem of providing reference assistance to scholars who are accessing networked information resources and who are at locations remote from expert librarians. Librarians were able to intervene directly in information access and retrieval sessions, remotely assisting the user during the real-time, online process. The testbed for the project was a CD-ROM network delivering US government information to DOS workstations via Ethernets connected to a routed TCP/IP wide-area network and utilizing off-the-shelf remote control software. Although problems with existing technology were discovered, this mode of providing reference assistance is a valid model for future services
