Arizona State University Receives Significant Grant


The Arizona State University Libraries in cooperation with the Maricopa County Community College Districts and Phoenix Public Library has received a Title IID U.S. Department of Education College Library Technology and Cooperation Grant. The Phoenix Metro Image Project (PMIP) is a three-year project funded for $371,792 to provide access to the ABI/Inform database of business journals and selected full-text article retrieval to participating libraries via the Internet.

The ABI/Inform database provides access to articles in 968 of the most respected journals in the fields of business, finance, management and related subjects. Full-text images of the articles in 410 journals have been scanned and stored electronically on CD-ROM. On demand delivery of these selected articles will be provided through the Phoenix Metro Image Project.

The Maricopa County Community College District uses DRA as an integrated system and already has an Internet link to ASU for reciprocal online catalog searching. Funding for the Internet link to Phoenix Public Library which uses CSLI as an integrated system is included in the grant.

Sherrie Schmidt, Dean of the University Libraries at ASU, is the project manager for the grant. She noted that the project is the first to link three different types of libraries for the purpose of electronic document delivery.

The Phoenix Public Library online catalog, ValleyCat, represents 1.8 million volumes and serves 424,814 registered borrowers with a central library, 11 branches, and dial-in access. The Maricopa County Community College district online catalog represents 500,000 volumes and serves 94,000 students at 10 college libraries. The ASU online catalog represents 2.8 million volumes, serves 38,000 students on the main campus and 5,000 students at the ASU West campus, and also offers remote dial-in access.

The first phase of the project is to load five years (1987-1992) of the ABI/Inform database on the ASU Online Catalog as a separate file. ASU students now have access to 22 locally loaded databases as well as to three college and university libraries' systems in Arizona, and through the ASU gateway to CARL in Denver, access to eleven other libraries' online catalog systems in other states.
