Description : 'Searcher' Magazine editor Barbara Quint (bq) is not only one of the world's most famous online searchers, but the most creative and controversial writer, editor and speaker to emerge from the information industry in the last two decades. bq is a guru of librarians and database professionals the world over, and - as her readers, publishers and 'quarry' know - when it comes to barbed wit she is in a class by herself. Whether she chastises database providers about unacceptable fees, interfaces and updates, recouting the ills visited on the world by computer makers, or inspiring her readers to achieve greatness, her voice is consistently original and compelling. In this book, for the first time anywhere, Marylaine Block has gathered hundreds of Barbara Quint's most memorable, insightful, and politically-incorrect quotations for the enjoyment of her many fans.

Description : Published in 1992, like the first, this second edition is not intended as introductory textbook command-driven, Boolean searching. It is targeted at online searchers who already have some knowledge of command languages and may be proficient searchers on databases in one or two subject areas, but when required to venture into new and less familiar territory still need guidance. It is also offered to end users who possess the subject expertise but lack of information retrieval know-how. The Manual is offered as a guide to database selection and a navigational aid through the twists and turns of the retrieval maze; at least some of the dead ends and backtracking may thereby be avoided. This volume, written by experts in their various fields, deals with the subject coverage and record structures of specific databases, offers comparisons between databases (context, indexing procedures, updating policies, etc.), discusses the choice between online and CD-ROM sources (and between hosts if online is selected), and illustrates strategies with numerous search extracts.

Description : This richly illustrated book provides guidelines for evaluating a variety of database types, including abstracting and indexing, directory, full-text, and page-image databases available in online and/or CD-ROM formats. Jacso discusses the purpose and techniques of comparing and evaluating the most important characteristics of textual databases, such as their scope, dimensions, source coverage, record content, accuracy, consistency, currency, and completeness. Evaluation models and procedures are given for widely used databases (e.g., Books in Print, Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, Library and Information Science Abstracts and their full-text version), whose subject, content, and terminology are familiar to librarians and information specialists irrespective of their specialization. Beyond traditional online and CD-ROM databases, the book illustrates the evaluation of the new Web-born information resources (including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Electric Library, and Northern Light).
