The Scottish Collaborative On-demand Publishing Enterprise (SCOPE) was a project funded from 1995 to 1998 as part of the UK's Electronic Libraries (eLib) programme. SCOPE was involved with providing students with access to key course readings either via course packs or electronically via the Internet. The project achieved its aims of providing improved access, developing a model copyright permissions agreement, and developing a secure user-authentication and delivery method. At the end of the SCOPE Project, eLib accepted a bid from the project team and other partners to provide a national on-demand service, known as HERON (Higher Education Resources ON-demand). This has similar aims to SCOPE, but on a UK-wide scale with a view to start providing an active service in January 2000.
