JEFFLINE's office was redecorated several times over the years,
but the metaphor remained the same:
JEFFLINE Classic, 2000
AISR continued to build JEFFLINE with additional
resources, and to provide hosting to campus departments and services.
The office metaphor was inviting, use of the Web exploded, and
so did JEFFLINE use.
New resources were added to JEFFLINE:
- AISR moved ThomCat, the online catalog, to new Web-based software.
- Databases such as MEDLINE and Micromedex developed Web-based
- Reference questions, book renewals and other library services
could be handled online.
- AISR provided distance learning courses and computer-based learning
programs for curriculum support.
- AISR developed educational products for commercial sale, both
with faculty and independently.
- Librarians created a virtual reference collection, electronic
handouts, and other tools.
- Informatics instruction was added to the curriculum (JanPlan).
- CourseInfo, introduced in 2000, provided a quick and easy path
for faculty to put their courses online.
JEFFLINE use continued to grow:
- JEFFLINE logged just under 200,000 homepage hits in 1994, compared
to well over 1.5 million in 2000/2001.
