ARIE-L -- Discussion of the Ariel Document Transmission System


About ARIE-L
English (USA)

ARIE-L is an electronic discussion group supporting use of the Ariel document transmission system.

Ariel software is widely used by libraries worldwide to facilitate resource sharing and interlibrary loan activities by transmitting documents over the internet. Originally developed in the early 1990's by the Research Libraries Group, Ariel is now distributed by Infotrieve, Inc.

Additional information about Ariel can be found at the Ariel Information Center and on ShareILL. Scanner recommendations are available here. Archives of past messages sent to the mailing list are available at the Mail Archive (public and easily searched) and on the list mail server (password protected and harder to search but goes back to 1998).
