A & I Database title overlap program? Marshall, Susan 11 May 2004 17:45 UTC


    I am trying to find out if there is a program available that will run a
comparison of titles indexed between two index and abstract databases.
This can be used as a collection development tool. For example, we
would like to know what percentage of overlap occurs between
the Anthropological Index Online and InfoTrac's OneFile.

I realize that other factors need to be considered when camparing
databases of this nature such as how a database is indexed, but for
a rough estimate of overlap it would be nice to have...

Anyone know of a tool that can do this?
