Publication History Access was first published in March 1994 under the title, Access Road - Bulletin of the Baylor University Libraries. The title was derived from a quote from George Welles of US West Communications given in a 1993 address to a CAUSE conference. Welles said, "Libraries should be the Access Road to the Information Superhighway." Access Road was published monthly until November 2000, when it was redesigned and made a bi-annual publication.
It was again redesigned and this time renamed, Access, in fall 2003. It was printed each semester - aside from the Spring 2005 issue which is only available online - and mailed to faculty, staff, administrators and select graduate students. In an effort to catch up with the current modes of online communication and do a better job keeping you up with development in the Libraries, Access is now available in blog format and updated as news becomes available.
