TORRANCE, Calif., (August 02, 2004)— The Electronic Document Systems Foundation (EDSF), the non-profit organization dedicated to the document communications industry, today announced the creation of an industry resource designed to provide access to pertinent research, with educational value, from leading sources within the industry. This resource can be found on the EDSF’s web site at: http://www.edsf.org/research_library.cfm.
“Much of the document communications industry research can be found in a number of locations on the Internet, ranging from centers of higher education to technology providers,” said Toby Cobrin, Chairperson of EDSF’s library.“It is EDSF’s intent to provide a single source of
relevant research findings, regardless of their origin, with the hope that all will benefit.”
