A new addition to the list of useful products with unlovely names is INSPEC ONDISC the result of collaboration between the UK INSPEC database producers and University Microfilms International. In Spring 1991 they will issue a CD‐ROM version of the INSPEC records as a three‐disk set covering 1989, 1990 and 1991 — the last will be updated quarterly. Each disk will include about 250,000 records from the abstracting of 4,200+ technical journals and 1,000+ conference proceedings, books and reports in the fields of Physics, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computing interpreted widely enough to include most aspects of high‐technology. With this product University Microfilms will introduce a new version of search software with library holdings, word and phrase inverted index, and a thesaurus for precise subject definition. An included option of the searching strategy takes account of British and American spellings.
