Due to overload of information from cataloging and law discussion groups
and serials, I haven't had the time to subscribe to discussion groups like
PACS-L or really read for retention the appropriate serials to find out
how to access other opacs through the Internet or what ones could be accessed.
I am fortunate to have a husband who is Emory's library systems manager, who
gave me two titles to try to lessen my ignorance after I mentioned the
discussions I had read on the lists I am subscribed to. For those of you
who interested and innocent like me, the titles are:
1. "Searching library catalogs on the Internet: a survey" / by Aggi W. Raeder
and Karen L. Andrews. Database Searcher, p. 16-31, Sept. 1990.
2. Internet-accessible library catalogs and databases / compiled by Dr. Art
St. George at the University of New Mexico and Dr. Ron Larsen at the
University of New Mexico. April 16, 1991. So far, this is free, and
according to Raeder and Andrews, Dr. St. George "continues to serve
as a central source for receiving corrections and updates, and issues
periodically." It's a wonderful directory complete with instructions and
information contacts for some libraries.
