Farquhar, J. A.; Dei Rossi, J. A.
The paper concerns some of the economic considerations inherent in designing user services that incorporate various communication systems. It describes three such services considered important in providing information to the biomedical community comprised of practicing physicians and those engaged in teaching and research, as well as other professionals directly involved in biomedical research and in the practice of medicine. Following this discussion is a brief description of some technological developments that might make these or similar services available in less expensive ways, as well as some problem areas. (Author)
