19 June 3, 2003IATUL19 Impact on Users Comments from Faculty The addition of access to full text journal articles via your web site is terrific; the most positive step in handling of library materials since computerized catalogs. I am going to be brief and to the point: the online journal service is GREAT!!! To date, I haven’t been all that excited about the library services on this campus; however, this has really changed my opinion. I have found the use of electronic journals is now an indispensable part of my work. I used this extensively in preparing my recent grant applications. The value of electronic journals must be measured by more than just the content — the public relations value is inestimable
