Providing and accessing information via the internet: The georgetown catalogue of projects in electronic text


Journal Article

A study of Georgetown University’s Catalogue of Projects in Electronic Text (CPET), while confirming the prediction that access and knowledge management will be major concerns in the library of the future, suggests that the demands of the two desiderata will sometimes clash. This review of CPET charts the tradeoffs between maintenance and access that have marked three successive technological generations of the project, considers the implications of recent data on CPET usage, and speculates upon improvements in maintenance and access that will come with newly emerging utilities on the Internet. © 1994 by The Haworth Ress, Inc.
