Online Public Access Catalogs: Accessing Abstracting and Indexing Databases

Academic and Library Computing

ISSN: 1055-4769

Article publication date: 1 June 1992



In the last issue, access to abstracting and indexing databases through the online public access catalog was discussed. The Association of Research Libraries' (ARL) “Guidelines for Licensing Local Databases” (released in March 1991) was cited and six broadly based questions on topics that aren't really covered in the “Guidelines” were posed. These questions were designed to help planners before they have actually reached the contract negotiation stage. This month's column addresses the questions raised in the “Guidelines” document itself.
