Tallon, J.
This report by the BRS (Bibliographic Retrieval Services) Committee, which was formed to identify costs and benefits of joining BRS, provides a summary of anticipated use of the BRS system and projected savings, and recommendations to the library on joining BRS. The majority of the report comprises seven appendices: (1) a comparison of search system features for BRS, DIALOG, and CAN/OLE (Canadian On Line Enquiry); (2) a summary of databases available and unique to BRS, identifying hourly rates, dates available, and interest areas; (3) a comparison of costs and availability for databases on BRS and systems currently used at Concordia; (4) a list of seven information sources consulted to produce the three preceding appendices; (5) detailed estimates of the anticipated yearly BRS use, indicating numbers of hours per year for databases unique to BRS and databases currently searched on other systems; (6) detailed estimates of anticipated yearly BRS connect time savings by database for both 60 and 120 contract hours; and (7) detailed estimates of anticipated yearly BRS offline print savings, including charge difference per citation per abstract for DIA/CAN/OLE and BRS.
