|The GAELS Pilot Project aims to develop a
joint electronic information service in support of engineering research at Glasgow and
Strathclyde Universities, together with an information skills training package.
The information service is likely to include improved reciprocal access to the engineering collections at the two institutions, the provision of an enhanced document delivery service, both from local holdings and via interlibrary loan, and an integrated approach to remote electronic resources.
The development process will have three parts:
It is anticipated that the information audit and feasibility study will be completed by the end of the academic session 1998-1999, and that a pilot service will be launched in the session 1999-2000.

jointly by Strathclyde University and Glasgow University, and funded by a SHEFC Strategic
Change Initiative grant. © University of Glasgow/University of Strathclyde
