Notes

Abstract: In October 1997, the University of North Texas Libraries entered into an agreement with the U.S. Government Printing Office to provide permanent public access to the electronic records of the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (ACIR). As the official and the only site for ACIR electronic records, requests for historical publications of the agency are frequently received from researchers, government administrators, students, and others who find UNT Libraries electronic collection by searching the Internet. The authors propose to enhance the current ACIR electronic collection by making the most important serial titles published by the agency available as electronic documents accessible via the Internet. The serial titles are no longer in print and, to the authors' knowledge, are not available in electronic format. This digitization project will be accomplished by outsourcing high-speed, quantity scanning of approximately 4,200 pages of text. The high speed scanning will provide us with "pdf" files. The authors will then develop a method for organizing and presenting the files on the World Wide Web designed to provide broad access using the free Acrobat Reader. The authors' goal will be to develop a process that balances level of access with the cost of digitizing and making the data available on the Internet.
