CD-ROMS Step by Step.
This manual consists of sets of guides for six CD-ROM databases: (1) ABI/INFORM, a business administration CD-ROM published by UMI; (2) Books in Print (an outstanding tool for compiling bibliographies on any subject); (3) ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center), an education database in the version published by SilverPlatter; (4) MLA, a comprehensive literature database published by Wilson; (5) PsycLit, a psychological database published by Silverplatter; and (6) Logicraft, a network interface for CD-ROMS. Each set of guides consists of two guides, a one-page quick search guide that is sufficient for getting on and using each database, and a multiple-page, step-by-step guide that gives detailed instructions. Both guides have the same numbers so that any part of the one-page guide can be instantly found in more detail in the multiple page guide. These guides are kept beside each terminal in the Daniel Library at The Citadel Computer Center (Charleston, South Carolina) for instant use by patrons; they are also used in classes and for individual instruction. The one-page guides are distributed free on request. (Author/KRN)
