The Records Image Processing System (RIPS) will be available for use to researchers on Monday,
March 17, 1997.
RIPS experienced a series of computer hardware failures beginning on February 7, 1997. The
process of restoring the system was complicated by the fact that the computer and jukebox
are approximately six years old.
