Sloan); (9) "User Instruction for Access to Catalogs and Databases on the Internet" (Genevieve Engel); (10) "Linking Library Records to Bibliographic Databases: An Analysis of Common Data Elements in BIOSIS, Agricola, and the OPAC" (Susan Barnes and Janet McCue); (11) "Adding a Nonlibrary Campus Collection to the Library Database" (Richard Harwood); (12) "Bulk Loading of Records for Microform Sets into the Online Catalogue" (Kathy Carter, Hope Olson, and Sam Aquila); (13) "The Georgia Institute of Technology Electronic Library: Issues To Consider" (Amy Dykeman and Julia Zimmerman); and (14) "Opening Up Information Access through the Electronic Catalog" (Pat Molholt and Kathy Forsythe).
