Re: Online services to contiguous research parts

The Research Park affiliated with the University of Western Ontario
regularly requests access to library resources, in particular, our
electronic resources. We do not have a good solution as some of our
faculty work both on campus and at/ or with researchers at the Research
Park.  I too am very interested in any models for serving them.
