The Atlantic Scholarly Information Network is comprised of 18 academic libraries in Atlantic Canada who collectively provide access to a wealth of information resources including 8 library catalogues, 30+ locally produced reference and full-text resources, hundreds of licensed electronic resources, and 17 library web sites representing the collective wisdom of many reference librarians and subject bibliographers who have created high quality research guides, virtual reference services and library subject pathfinders. The session will describe the ASIN Resource Discovery and Management Service (ARDMS), a software solution for integrating all of the above resources into a seamless whole.

For over 17 years Slavko Manojlovich has been the Assistant to the University Librarian for Systems and Planning at Memorial University Of Newfoundland where he has survived(he hopes) the transition from punch card, to microfiche, to mainframe, to client/server, and finally to integrating resource discovery and management solutions. Slavko is a founding member of the Z39.50 Bath Profile Group and served on NISO's Z39.50 US Profile committee. He is currently involved in a number of projects including the Newfoundland Newspaper Index and the Atlantic Scholarly Information Network’s Resource Discovery and Management Service (ARDMS).
