The Project began in June 1994 and is expected to end in April 1995. As a priority, the EPPP will incorporate a small number of formally published Canadian online journals. These journals are being acquired, catalogued, and permanently stored at the NLC. Public access is being provided on the Internet through Gopher and the World Wide Web. EPPP cataloguing entries, including the Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) of EPPP titles are available on NLC Systems including AMICUS. The Project will deliver recommendations for NLC policies in the areas of acquiring, cataloguing, storing, preserving, and providing service for electronic publications. Issues such as copyright, security, royalties, billing and technical standards will also be addressed. The Electronic Publications Pilot Project is intended to be a first step in planning for using the AMICUS Library System to manage full-text electronic publications at the National Library of Canada."
