>Project TULIP (The University Licensing Program), a five-year experiment in
>providing online access to scholarly journals, has concluded, and the
>results indicate that the transition from conventional to digital libraries
>will take much longer and cost more than commonly thought.  "A common view,
>which all TULIP participants share, is that the transition to a digital
>library will go slower than they had expected before starting the project,"
>says the project's final report, which emphasizes the need for faster speeds
>and increase storage capacity on campus networks.  In addition, the project
>found that it's important for institutions to know what library users want,
>and to promote electronic access to raise awareness on campus.
