The Proxy Service Task Force (PSTF) was convened by the Public Services Council in October 1999 to:
The PSTF initiated a beta test of the service in December 1999. As part of the service documentation was created. The documentation was expanded and now includes a Library Orientation Leaflet, a Proxy Server Service FAQ, and a Troubleshooting Checklist, the last two are available on the proxy server web site. A web form was developed for selectors to submit titles to be added to or removed from the proxy server list of licensed UCB web resources (proxy.pac). This form is available from the UCB Library Collection Development Policies and Procedures web page.
In March 2000, the proxy service was officially unveiled to library patrons and the feedback on the service has been very positive.
