July 18, 1996 * Vol . 6, No. 6
University librarian Ted Dobb co-accepted the 1996 innovation
achievement award given by the Canadian Association of College and University
Libraries at its annual meeting, June 7, in Halifax. He accepted it on behalf
of B.C.'s Electronic Library Network (ELN) for its development of the on-line
journal citations access service (OJAC).
The OJAC service facilitates the on-line ordering of journal articles by
linking ELN serials holdings to a variety of index databases. Users are
able to retrieve citations, determine immediately which institutions hold
the journal, and initiate an inter-library loan for that article all from
the same search screen. A growing list of ELN member libraries are participating
as users and document suppliers.
ELN requested that Dobb receive the award on behalf of Simon Fraser University
in recognition of SFU's leadership and ongoing support for the OJAC service.
ELN coordinates and supports resource sharing among libraries in 28 B.C.
colleges, institutes, university-colleges and universities. Administrative
responsibility for the ELN resides with the Open Learning Agency, under
the Ministry of Skills, Training and Labor.
