DIALOG Users Workshope, August 8-9, 1974. Second Working Conference. Arlington, Virginia.
Federation of Information Users, Pittsburgh, PA.
The workshop had its genesis in the belief that interactive bibliographic data base searching will become an essential function of reference service and that there is a need for indepth training and more communication with suppliers--the on-line system supplier and the data base supplier. The workshop included presentations by data base suppliers, and very brief descriptions of the following files are included: Chemical Abstracts Condensates, Compendex, ERIC, Inspec, NAL/CAIN, Pandex/Transdex, Predicasts, Psychological Abstracts, and NTIS. Roger Summit, Manager of Lockheed Information Systems, summarized the history and background of DIALOG, described the most recent developments and those planned for the near future, and then led a discussion with the users. One-hour workshop sessions gave participants the opportunity to meet personally with representatives from eight data bases. Out of these sessions grew suggestions and questions for Lockheed's DIALOG.
