Access to technical information from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has been greatly expanded through a new Web-based service.
The Internet protocol (IP) access program provides private and public libraries, government agencies, research organizations, universities and
corporations with access to articles from ASHRAE Journal, ASHRAE Transactions and the International Journal of HVAC&R Research for an annual fee. Licensees will register IP addresses, which are unique identifiers for a computer on a network. Any user who connects to the site through a registered IP address will automatically be allowed access to site content
approved for that license. No log-in or password will be needed to access the content. There will be no limits on the number of concurrent users from the IP.
Users will be able to search for content using the existing ASHRAE.org Bookstore search tools.
The service is part of ASHRAE's Roadmap for the ASHRAE Web Site, which calls for ASHRAE to increase its visibility by offering better access to technical information, according to Steve Comstock, ASHRAE publisher.
For more information, visit the Bookstore on ASHRAE.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
