Connecting NovaNET and PLATO to an External Database: The University of Illinois Library Online Catalog.
Avner, Elaine; Avner, Allen
This paper provides the documentation for the program that provides access to the University of Illinois Online Catalog (OLC), together with a script to be used with 17 slides explaining the development of the program. Advantages of connecting a database to a computer-assisted instruction (CAI) system are outlined and sources of additional information are listed. It is noted that: (1) the menu-driven lesson assists users connected to the online catalog through a NovaNET port; (2) users submit requests in OLC language but can request definitions of format; and (3) the program provides information in a notesfile to determine whether the lesson worked correctly and what types of input errors occurred.
