Using Online Public Access Catalogs via the Internet. A Guide for the University of Georgia Libraries.
Kirby, Steven, Comp.
This guide was developed to support Internet access to library catalogs at the University of Georgia (UGA). Since the UGA Libraries can only connect to the Internet using TELNET 3270 emulation, this guide is restricted to library systems which support that protocol. Section 1 of the guide presents the commands that are needed to gain access to the Internet from a UGA IBM computer. Summaries of the commands needed to search in the Western Library Network (WLN), Brown University's "JOSIAH" system, the University of Missouri, and Illinet Online (IO) are included in Section 2. Section 3 presents a brief guide to searching the NOTIS online catalog and lists the 23 libraries that have implemented the NOTIS turnkey library system and are accessible via the Internet. Sections 4 through 11 provide the commands needed to access and search the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries network (CARL); the University of California System (MELVYL), the union catalog for the nine campuses; the University System of Georgia; the University of Wisconsin (Madison and Milwaukee); Harvard University; Dartmouth College; University of Texas at Austin; and the University of New Brunswick. Concluding the guide are indexes which provide access to the institution names, the library subject strengths, and special OPAC features. (MAB)
