dc.description.abstract In an effort to provide easier access to databases, to expand resources to full-text, and to reduce the time-consuming process of updating loose-leaf paper subscriptions. Dowling College Library recently underwent a major transformation in its delivery of electronic information to its customers. The library went from DOS to Windows and online access, from CD-ROM to Internet delivery, from single stand-alone units to networked CD-ROMs, and from paper to a networked digital format. The disruptive transition required a total re-thinking of the delivery of information literacy to the library's customers, a serious look at library relationships, and a greater emphasis on communication, planning and training. In addition, the success of the project seriously improved the view of the role of librarians on campus by providing cutting-edge technology campus-wide.
