Technology: 1999-2000

Two technological improvements, the proxy server and Illiad ILL management software increased user access to resources. With the proxy server, JMU faculty, students and staff can now access web resources previously restricted by IP address--a major step in providing access to electronic resources for distance education students and others reaching the Libraries' resources from off-campus. With Illiad, patrons can place ILL requests online, track that status of requests, receive email notification when ILL orders are filled or cancelled, and get electronic delivery of articles.
