Online Retrieval : A Dialogue of Theory and Practice
This text covers online systems that primarily provide information in the form of bibliographic citations. These systems often also contain files in other formats that provide answers to reference type questions. Emphasising both research and practice, this text offers basic how-to information on the use of such systems and discusses alternative points of view within a framework of previous researchers. Students in library/information science programmes should find this a useful text. Practising librarians and online searchers in library settings should find it a quick reference tool and a handy guide for inservice training. And information seekers who want to perform their own searches for bibliographic information using an online search system should also appreciate this resource.
