Abstract

Many tools exist to provide subject access to information stored on the Web. These include both automatic search engines such as ‘crawler’ programs and manually‐created subject indexes. In this article, four search engines and two subject collections with a search facility are compared in terms of their content, interface, search features, output and performance. For comprehensive searches of Web material, no single tool was found to be satisfactorily effective, and doubts remain as to whether such tools can yet be incorporated in the mainstream of online searching.

Abstract

WordStar and dBase II are used for a very wide range of small‐scale applications within a general policy of making computers available to all library staff. Ease of use is aided by having menu‐driven programs and providing appropriate instructions for each application. Descriptions are given of typical projects from straightforward word processing of user education documents to databases that require conversion between text and data files.

Abstract

This article first looks at the Bath Information and Data Services (BIDS) online bibliographic services from the point of view of the computing personnel who have developed and run the service. It examines the way in which librarians have worked with the BIDS personnel in the design and development of the services. It then looks, also from a computing perspective, at the role of librarians in those areas of the rapidly changing information world with which BIDS is concerned. It is in this latter context that the background to, the development of, and the future environment for, the BIDS Online Document Ordering System (BODOS) are explored.

Abstract

WAS IT ONLY the pure in heart (such as myself) who found the Great Christmas Holiday Shutdown the biggest bore of the year? Four days of actual Christmas lay‐off had me pining to be back at the office on the Wednesday morning, although most of Britain, including a number of academic libraries, reckoned it wasn't worth switching on the heating for only three days before the New Year holiday, and stayed in bed or sprawled in front of the telly for a grand total of 11 days.
