Dolan, Donna R.
Online, 2, 2, 26-30, Apr 78
The problems most frequently encountered in subject searching of the NY Times Information Bank are currency, multiconcept terms, generic descriptors, and verbosity. Vocabulary modifications are proposed and suggestions offered to help searchers overcome these problems and reduce their online connect time. These suggestions decreased the New York State Library's connect time by 50 per cent. (JPF)
