FASTDOC - Fast Document Ordering and Document Delivery

"The objective of the project was to develop and test a prototype of a fast electronic document ordering and document delivery system based on an already existing digital journal image archive and in-house delivery system.

Although the facilities for on-line searching and on-line ordering have dramatically improved over the last years, the access to the actual documents still requires a substantial amount of time. The growing significance of on-line ordering has inevitably led to an increased need for rapid provision of documents.

The project aimed to demonstrate the technical feasibility of the setting up of a document delivery service in the area of chemical journals by combining on-line searching, electronic ordering and electronic delivery. The system is fast (5 minutes from order to [fax] delivery), user friendly , reasonably priced and economically viable."
