The Impact of Computers on the Retrieval and Utilization of Chemical Information.
Lawrence, Barbara
The use of computers in retrieving bibliographic chemical information is traced through the SDI, batch, and online modes, and related changes are noted in such areas as data base availability, cost, software, and amount of user control. The impact of these changes on both the quality and quantity of chemical information use is discussed, as well as the positive impact on the chemical information professional whose status has been increased by the new skills required, challenges, and technical interactions with users. Cues for the 16 slides which illustrated this presentation are provided in the text, and the visuals for the slides are attached. (Author/RAO)
