LINUS July 2000 : Electronic Resources
Documents delivered to your desktop
Vimala Nambiar, Central Library DDS Coordinator
With effect from the academic year 2000/2001, all articles requested by NUS academic staff, postgraduate students and honours year students which are received electronically by the Library, will be sent directly to the requester's desktop. This will reduce the turn-around time for the delivery of the articles as well as eliminate the need for requesters to come to the Library in person to collect the articles.
Document Delivery Services (DDS) will notify you via e-mail when the article is received, so please check your e-mail regularly! You will be e-mailed a URL with a request number to access your article on your Web browser. All articles will be delivered in Portable Document Format (PDF). To view the article, please install Adobe Acrobat software in your PC's hard disk. Use Windows Shopping in NUSNET to buy Adobe Acrobat. The service is Web-based and the articles are kept in the Library server for only one week. If you are going to be away on conference or vacation leave, please inform DDS so that arrangements can be made to leave your article in the Library server longer. Should you encounter any problems accessing articles sent to you electronically, please contact the DDS Staff at 874-3472 or . For more information on Document Delivery Service, go to http://www.lib.nus.edu.sg/guides/docdel.html.
We hope that users will enjoy the speed and convenience offered by the electronic document delivery service.
