About Datapro Research Corporation 


Datapro Research Corporation is the most widely accepted and respected source of up-to-date, 
cost-saving information about data processing and office products and services, Datapro 
Research Corporation was founded in 1968 to do high technology research and consulting.

come to be regarded as "the EDP buyer's bible" in thousands of subscriber sites around the 
world. 

More services have been added. These easy-to-follow reference guides for computer users and 
buyers organize all that's new in electronic data processing, office automation, and communica¬ 
tions into meaningful and manageable information. Then we add evaluations made by subscrib¬ 
ers who rate the equipment they're currently using.

All information contained in this service is gathered from the most reliable sources available to our staff Although the principal source of 
information for most reports is from manufacturer specifications and literature, these inputs are frequently clarified and augmented 
through telephone calls, correspondence or visits with the manufacturer or equipment users Prior to publication, product reports are 
normally forwarded to the particular manufacturer for review 

Despite all of our best efforts to maintain the accuracy and timeliness of this service, the dynamic nature of the industry makes it 
impossible for us to guarantee the accuracy of information contained in the reports

Introduction 


Introduction 


Datapro’s Complete Guide to Dial-up Databases tells you 
what you need to know to use publicly accessible databases 
and to put that information to work for you. The Who?, 
What?, When?, Where?, How?, How much?, and Why? of 
databases are described in an easy-to-understand format 
that gives you everything you need in one package. 

Databases are warehouses of information stored on a com¬ 
puter. This information can be accessed by the public 
through the use of microcomputers or terminals via con¬ 
ventional phone lines. The technologies involved are de¬ 
scribed in detail in special reports included in this guide. 
But while it is helpful to understand the underlying tech¬ 
nologies, it is even more important to fully understand the 
opportunities afforded by these databases. 

Not only is information stored in great quantities on these 
databases, it is stored in such a way that selective retrieval is 
possible. For example, a user who wishes to obtain infor¬ 
mation on the voting record of a particular politician can 
ask for only information pertaining to that politician’s 
voting record, without having to wade through the voting 
records of all politicians. In this way, users can greatly 
increase the efficiency of their research on any topic. 

Further, because the information is stored in computers, 
frequent—even hourly—updating is possible. Therefore, 
the information stored in dial-up databases tends to be 
more current than information available from other media 
(like books, magazines, and newspapers). 

The types of information available are almost without 
bound and are growing every day. Following are just a few 
of the topics that can be researched through databases: 

• Economic information 

• Airline schedules 

• Demographic information of all kinds 

• Research studies 

• Scientific information of all kinds 

• Abstracts from all varieties of publications 

• Whole publications 

• Legal data 

• Medical data 

• Political information 

• Educational information 

• Computer science information 


• Consumer information 

• Construction and building material information 

• Stock market information 

• Travel and entertainment information 

In fact, a person involved in virtually any endeavor can 
find a database somewhere that contains information that 
will prove of value—if he or she knows where to look. This 
guide is designed to show you where to look, and much 
more. Our goal is to provide you with everything you need 
to know to effectively use databases. Following is a list of 
questions we asked ourselves when detailing the effective 
use of databases: 

WHO provides access to these databases? Which compa¬ 
nies allow you to dial-up their computer systems and 
retrieve information? 

WHAT information is available? What databases are on 
the market today? Who produces them? Who provides 
access to them? What kinds of information are available? 
Where can I call for more information? What information 
does each database include? Who else uses this 
information? 

WHEN can 1 access this information? How often is the 
information updated? How long have the producers and/or 
deliverers of this information been in business? 

WHERE are these producers and delivers located? Can I 
access this information from my location? 

HOW does all of this work? What do I have to do to dial-up 
these databases? What are the different kinds of terminals 
and modems available for my use in dialing-up these 
databases? What are the techniques involved in efficient 
database searching? Which microcomputers are available 
to facilitate searching? What software is available to facili¬ 
tate searching? 

HOW MUCH will all of this cost? 

WHY would anyone want to dial-up databases in the first 
place? Why would anyone need this guide? 

Asking the questions is only the first part of any problem¬ 
solving endeavor. Therefore, we have compiled over 600 
pages of answers, and published them in this guide. As an 
aid to your research, following are descriptions of the ways 
in which we answered our own questions. In a way. this 
introduction can be thought of as a guide to Datapro’s 
Complete Guide to Dial-up Databases. 

WHO? 

We use 2 to 19 pages to describe, in detail, the major 
services through which public databases can be reached.

• Data Resources, Inc. (DRI) 

• I.P. Sharp Associates Limited 

• Source Telecomputing Corporation (The Source) 

WHAT? 

Over 1400 publicly accessible databases are described in an 
easy-to-compare format. Each product is profiled with 
information like: 

Database Name and Acronym —shows the name and/or 
acronym of the database in question. 

Name, Address, Telephone Number —lists the indicated 
information for the organization that produces the data¬ 
base in question. This company gathers the information 
and organizes it. This company may or may not provide 
dial-up access to the information. 

Contact Name —indicates the name you can call to get even 
more information about a particular company or database. 

Type of Organization —refers to the organization that pro¬ 
duces the information that is stored in the database. This 
organization may be a profit-making concern, or a nonprof¬ 
it organization, or a government organization, etc. 

Type of Database —describes the type of information to be 
found in this database. These types of information are 
categorized as follows: 

REFERENCE DATABASES 

• Bibliographic databases provide users with references to, 
and possibly abstracts from, published works. These 
published works can include books, magazines, newspa¬ 
pers, journals, papers, transcripts, and others. 

• Referral databases provide users with references to, and 
possibly abstracts from, unpublished sources. These 
sources can include audiovisual materials, television or 
radio shows, individuals, organizations, and others. 

SOURCE DATABASES 

• Numeric databases contain the full information from 
surveys, and/or statistical manipulation of data. This 
data is often in the form of time series, with measure¬ 
ments represented over a period of time for a given 
variable. 


• Textual-Numeric databases include both numeric and 
textual data referring to the same topic. These data are 
often in the form of data elements or fields which com¬ 
prise larger records. Handbooks and dictionaries of 
chemical and physical properties are two common exam¬ 
ples of this kind of database. 

• Full Text databases include an entire published work. 
Usually a newspaper or magazine item, specification, 
court decision, law, or newsletter. 

Frequency of update is usually one of the following: 

• Continuously 

• Daily 

• Weekly 

• Biweekly 

• Monthly 

• Quarterly 

• Semiannually 

Unusual updating practices are also detailed here. 

Usage and Conditions details the way the database may be 
used and accessed. Any restrictions, like required member¬ 
ship in a professional organization, are also listed. 

Typical pricing arrangements describes not only the 
charges involved, but also the way those charges are calcu¬ 
lated. Often, access charges for databases include yearly 
leasing fees, on-line per-hour charges and/or membership 
dues. 

Applications emphasis describes the principal applications 
area(s) in which the database is used. This information is 
supplied by the vendor and reviewed by our editors. Fol¬ 
lowing are the standard applications areas:

All About Personal Computers In Remote Computing de¬ 
tails the specific uses of microcomputers in accessing on¬ 
line information and processing databases. Hardware and 
software topics are discussed both from the microcomputer 
manufacturer’s point of view, and from the on-line data¬ 
base deliverer’s point of view. As a result, you become 
familiar with the software and hardware both at your end of 
the telephone line, and at the other end of the telephone 
line. Knowing what you can and cannot do, and what you 
can and cannot expect the database company to do, is one 
step toward more efficient database searching. 

In this section, we list over 45 microcomputer software 
packages that allow the user to access database informa¬ 
tion. Following are some of the packages that are profiled in 
this section: 

• ORBIT SearchMaster from SDC Information Services 

• Source Link from The Source 

• DATAPATH from ADP Network Services 

In this section, we also discuss downloading information 
from the host database to a microcomputer and the market¬ 
ing arrangements that affect end-users. 


Important information like hours of operation, frequency 
of update, and length of time in service is given for produc¬ 
ers and deliverers of database information alike. This 
information can be found in the profiles of databases 
section, or in the on-line services companies section. 

WHERE? 

Name, address, phone number, and contact information is 
available for both producers and deliverers of database 
information. This helps you quickly find companies that 
provide the information you need. 

HOW? 

Included are four sections to help put this important tech¬ 
nology in perspective and to round out your knowledge of 
the field. 

Entitled All About Microcomputer Communications Soft¬ 
ware. the first section explains the importance of this 
technology, explains the technology itself, compares over 
145 communications software products, and provides user 
ratings information on the top packages. 


Finally, we profile the communications capabilities of 66 
microcomputers in a side-by-side format that allows for 
easy comparison. 

How to Analyze Your Data Communications Needs dis¬ 
cusses the basic components of a data communications 
network, including explanations of the various hardware 
devices and transmission facilities, and how they fit togeth¬ 
er to form a communications path. This section also de¬ 
scribes how to go about determining whether or not you 
can justify data communications in your organization. 
Suggestions for implementing a system are presented. 

All About Microcomputer Modems addresses all of the 
current technologies, compares over 90 microcomputer 
modems, and provides user rating information on the top 
modems. 

The modems listed in this section are grouped into three 
categories: plug-in, standalone, and acoustic coupler. Each 
of these categories contain the following information:

Information Access Company (IAC), producer of such well-known 
databases as Magazine ASAP, Trade and Industry Index, and 
Computer Index, is aggressively targeting that last expanse of un¬ 
charted territory—the elusive end-user market. CompuServe sub¬ 
scribers can now access a special version of IAC’s Computer 
ASAP full-text computer database. The file, Computer Database 
Plus, provides access to two years’ worth of articles from 120 
computer magazines. It’s available at the regular CompuServe 
connect charge of $12.50 per hour, plus a $24.00-per-hour sur¬ 
charge. 

Except for its IQuest gateway service, CompuServe previ¬ 
ously has not offered the kind of reference databases found, for 
example, on DIALOG. Its roots are in the home computer mar¬ 
ket. In Computer Database Plus, IAC and CompuServe have 
worked together to create an easy-to-navigate version of IAC’s 
larger Computer ASAP file. 

CompuServe accommodates users unaccustomed to Com¬ 
puter Database Plus. For example, searchers can use familiar Compu¬ 
Serve commands such as “M” to get to the category’s main 
menu. Also, when opting to see the full text of an article they are 
told the article’s length in lines and number of bytes. A byte 
count is something CompuServe routinely gives for all files avail¬ 
able for downloading.

Computer Database Plus, 
described in this month’s lead ar¬ 
ticle, is yet another on-line service 
targeted at end users. Its vendor, 
CompuServe, has nearly 500,000 
subscribers, so Computer Data¬ 
base Plus may acquaint thousands 
of people with on-line searching. 
We suspect that many of these 
people, however, will experience 
“rate shock” when their first bills 
arrive. While today’s fast modems 
and sophisticated software shorten 
time on-line, database searching 
remains expensive. 

In the spirit of combating on¬ 
line expenses, here are some tips: 

• Know what you are after, be¬ 
fore you sign on. New Datapro 
Directory of On-line Services Ad¬ 
visory Board member Barbara 
Quint admits she sometimes goes 
on-line without a clear game plan. 
Her considerable on-line experi¬ 
ence, however, enables her to 
make every second on-line pro¬ 
ductive. If her hits don’t pan out, 
she can backtrack or fast forward 
with the best of them. But most 
of us need to plan our search 
strategies carefully, while off-line, 
to make our on-line time as pro¬ 
ductive as possible. 


• Use the fastest modem you 
can afford. Usually, although an 
on-line vendor may charge more 
for 2400 bps access than for 1200 
bps access, the difference is not 
proportionately as much. For ex¬ 
ample, a vendor may charge 50 
percent more for 2400 bps access 
even though the user gets data at 
twice the rate of a 1200 bps 
searcher. 

• Whenever possible, search 
when it’s cheapest. Take advan¬ 
tage of off-peak rates and after- 
hours services such as DIALOG’S 
Knowledge Index. 

• Finally, use customer service. 
Many vendors offer toll-free num¬ 
bers staffed by specialists. In some 
cases, the rep will even try out the 
search for you, saving you money 
and potential hardship. 

Here’s to happy, cost-effective 
searching!

Delta Buys into 
American’s 
SABRE System 


Competitors Delta and American Airlines have 
merged their Computer Reservation Systems (CRSs) 
to form a new, independent partnership to own and 
market a global CRS. American will contribute its 
SABRE system (the world’s largest), while Delta will 
contribute its Datas II reservations system. Because 
the Delta system was much smaller than American’s, 
Delta paid American $650 million as part of the 
deal. The new company will be based in the Dallas- 
Fort Worth, Texas area, the site of American’s head¬ 
quarters. 

CRSs are used for airline seat, lodging, and 
rental car reservations and for other travel and man¬ 
agement information services. The SABRE system, 
which is available via a gateway through several on¬ 
line systems under the name Eaasy Sabre, contains 
flight schedule and fare data for more than 650 air¬ 
lines. 

Initially, each airline will own a 50 percent in 
the partnership. Other companies, including travel 
companies and airlines not yet affiliated with a sys¬ 
tem, will be recruited to enter the partnership. As 
new companies join, Delta’s and American’s share 
will be equally reduced and could eventually fall to 
25 percent. 

One factor leading to the merger was recent gov¬ 
ernment criticism of single-owner CRS systems. In¬ 
deed, other carriers have sued American claiming 
that its owning SABRE gave it an unfair advantage. 
Statistical evidence shows that travel agents affili¬ 
ated with a particular reservations system make a 


3/89 

disproportionate part of their bookings for the air- 3 
line owning the system. Architectural bias in the sys¬ 
tem software confers huge marketing advantages to 
the sponsoring airline, according to The Wall Street 
Journal. 

“We have always maintained that the criticism 
is unjustified,” said Robert L. Crandall, chairman, 
president, and CEO of American. “On the other 
hand, we would prefer to run our business rather 
than run a debating contest, and we think this is a 
good solution for all—our customers, our employ¬ 
ees, and our critics.” The merger was also intended 
to strengthen the competitive position of the two 
companies. 

There are 11 such CRSs worldwide—5 in the 
U.S. alone. The new company will control 43 per¬ 
cent of the U.S. computer reservations market, ac¬ 
cording to Delta spokesperson Jim Lundy. Roughly 
17,000 of the 30,000 U.S. travel agencies are 
expected to use the system. 

Under the antitrust laws, the merger must still 
pass Justice department muster. This may prove 
more than a formality in this case. The Wall Street 
Journal predicted that the transaction would draw 
“intense antitrust scrutiny.” 

The new Computer Reservation System would 
appear to have a significant advantage over United 
Airline’s Apollo system, the second largest CRS. 

Last year, United Airlines sold a half interest in its 
system to US Air and four European carriers.

The First Mass Market 
Database? 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Boolean operators, truncation, 
and even nesting are available to 
intensify database searches. Exten¬ 
sive help information is available 
on-line (although this is not the 
most cost-effective way to get this 
information). The user is also 
3/89 given the choice of retrieving just 
4 the abstract ($1.00 extra) or, if 
available, the full text ($1.50 
extra). CompuServe always speci¬ 
fies when you can expect to pay 
more. 

Should DIALOG searchers and 
others who access IAC computer 
files on other systems now switch 
to CompuServe? After reviewing 
the database, we have to conclude 
no. Experienced searchers can do 
faster, more exacting searches 
when going through a system such 
as DIALOG’S. 

But how about novice searchers 
whose research demands may not 
warrant a DIALOG password? 
Even then, Computer Database 
Plus may not be the right choice. 
DIALOG, for example, has a 
consumer-oriented service of its 
own, Knowledge Index (KI). 

While KI does not include Com¬ 
puter ASAP, it does feature other 
computer files such as Business 
Software Database, Microcom¬ 
puter Index, Microcomputer Soft¬ 
ware and Hardware Guide, and 
Computer Database. 

Computer Database, also from 
IAC, does not include full text, 
but it does offer abstracts. Also, at 
a flat $24 per hour with no per-hit 
charges or telecommunications 
fees, it’s cheaper than Computer 
Database Plus. (The sign-up fees 
for CompuServe and Knowledge 
Index are comparable.) Finally, a 


Knowledge Index user has more 
than 60 other reference databases 
from which to choose. 

On the other hand, searching 
Computer ASAP, which is avail¬ 
able on DIALOG’S main service, 
is much more expensive than 
searching Computer Database 
Plus. It costs $108 per hour. 

Certainly, having Computer 
Database Plus available on 
CompuServe will expose on-line 
searching to new users. Consider¬ 
ing the target market—a 
computer-savvy, but “general 
audience”—CompuServe and IAC 
are quite compatible. We’ll be in¬ 
terested, however, in CompuServe 
subscriber reactions. So will 
CompuServe, because it would 
like to add other “computer- 
related reference materials” to its 
service. 


Datapro Announces 
Reports on UNIX 
Systems & Software 

UNIX. Multiple versions, OSF vs 
the AT&T camp, VAR offerings, 
and POSIX standards are just a 
few of the issues managers must 
face in dealing with the emergence 
of UNIX in business and govern¬ 
ment environments. Once rele¬ 
gated to engineering groups and 
special-purpose applications, this 
powerful operating system has 
entered the mainstream. Burgeon¬ 
ing UNIX interest has generated a 
growing market for software tools, 
business applications, and hard¬ 
ware platforms. Forward-thinking 
managers need information now 
on products and issues to develop 
UNIX strategies for the 1990s. 

In a single volume, Datapro 
Reports on UNIX Systems & Soft¬ 
ware covers the entire spectrum. 

It provides in-depth reports on 
today’s foremost software and 
hardware products. In addition, it 
delivers informed commentary on 
the management and standards 
issues confronting technology 
managers who must plan and 
build tomorrow’s open systems. 

Call Datapro at 1 (800) 328-

unique blend of analytical product 
evaluations and issue-oriented 
reports. Or, arrange to receive a

Highlights 


It’s not surprising that the market for business and financial 
services on-line, which is the most lucrative segment of the on¬ 
line industry, is also its most competitive. In this month’s issue 
we spotlight this sector with updated reports on two of its top 
companies—Quotron and Telerate. 

Relative oldtimer Quotron (Report OL20-776-101) re¬ 
mains one of the leading suppliers of realtime financial services. 
Despite increased competition, more than 95,000 users (termi¬ 
nals) at more than 5,000 customer locations access Quotron data. 
Like many companies, however, Quotron is moving into new 
markets, which is where it finds itself playing catch-up. For exam¬ 
ple, in the fixed income market, Telerate has the largest share. 
Telerate, however, also faces fierce competition these days, partic¬ 
ularly from Reuters. But, as our revised report (Page OL20- 
910-101) points out, all told Telerate is doing exceedingly well. 

Also highlighted this month is a revised report on Info 
Globe (Report OL20-480-101), the Canadian on-line company 
that offers, among other things, electronic access to Canada’s 
national newspaper, The Globe and Mail. In addition, we present 
a brand-new feature report describing Computer-Based Train¬ 
ing (Report OL70-750-101). The comparison columns following 
the report (Page OL70-750-201) compare 300 CBT products 
from 46 vendors. 

Finally, in this issue we formally welcome two new mem¬ 
bers to the Datapro Directory of On-line Services advisory 
board—Julie Denny of McGraw-Hill and Barbara Quint of 
Database Searcher. They join longtime board member Alfred 
Glossbrenner. Their biographical sketches are featured in the 
updated Meet Our Advisory Board leaf included with this month’s 
issue.

A Shakeup at The 
Source 


Even people who don’t follow the on-line industry may have 
heard of CompuServe and The Source. For years, these on-line 
companies were synonymous with consumer-oriented on-line ser¬ 
vices, although it’s been a while since they could be so easily pi¬ 
geonholed. In an age when “high tech” can be intimidating, the 
fact that The Source and CompuServe were owned by Readers 
Digest and H&R Block, respectively, seemed reassuring. 

During this time, CompuServe grew steadily, to 500,000 sub¬ 
scribers today (see “A Milestone for CompuServe,” elsewhere in 
this newsletter). Remarkably, CompuServe achieved this growth 
as strong competitors entered the fray, including General Elec¬ 
tric’s GEnie service and DELPHI from General Videotex Corpo¬ 
ration. 

The Source, on the other hand, entered a period of seem¬ 
ingly endless stagnation. Its subscriber base stood virtually still at 
70,000. Its selection of databases and other on-line services didn’t 
change much either. It added Special Interest Groups, but never 
really developed them. And, while its communications services 
were tops, it never did feature much in the way of reference ser¬ 
vices, except for Investext reports and the ubiquitous Academic 
American Encyclopedia. 

This no-growth period culminated in the sale of the com¬ 
pany to venture capital firm Walsh, Carson, Anderson, and Stowe 
in mid-1987. Datapro last heard that the new owners planned to 
reorganize The Source along business lines to emphasize its strong 
suits—communications, investor services, databases and publish¬ 
ing, and news and information. Spokesperson Nancy Beckman 
told Datapro in mid-1988 that new services would follow.

In our February newsletter, we 
heralded Dow Jones News/Retrie- 
val’s DowQuest service, and with 
it the arrival of natural-language 
searching. We said that DowQuest 
excites us because it lets users 
search databases via conversa¬ 
tional English. Freed from the 
constraints of having to choose 
keywords, searchers can simply 
“tell the machine what they 
want.” More than that, however, 
DowQuest uses the headlines 
you’ve marked as most relevant 
as the basis for subsequent 
searches. It assumes that business 
searchers may not have a clear 
idea of the information they need 
until they get a feel for “what’s 
out there.” 

But does it work? We recently 
tried DowQuest, which is still in a 
testing stage. We also had some¬ 
one without any search experience 
try it, since that’s for whom the 
service is intended. Our novice 
searcher, while familiar with com¬ 
puters, had never searched on-line 
before. We placed him at Dow- 
Quest’s doorstep, and let him pro¬ 
ceed on his own. 

For his first search, the 
searcher entered the name of fin¬ 
ancier Mike Milken, pulling up 12 
articles. All proved relevant, and 


our searcher wanted to read them 
all. By the third search, he was an 
old hand and was telling the sys¬ 
tem to use selected headlines as 
the basis for subsequent searches. 

One search, simply on 
“LANs,” pulled up a piece about 
the Mets baseball team. Curious, 
we scrolled through the article 
page by page looking for refer¬ 
ences to local area networks. In¬ 
deed, in the last paragraph we 
found a reference to Dr. Alan 
LANs, the team doctor. 

Even with artificial intelligence, 
computers still “think” literally. 
Still, and this is key, our novice 
searcher said he’d definitely use 
DowQuest for other research 
problems. 

DowQuest is aptly named— 
using it is more like having an 
adventure than doing research. 
The word quest implies fun, not 
work: that’s DowQuest. While we 
feel that users completely new to 
computers will need some hand¬ 
holding through early sessions, 
DowQuest is a painless entry to 
on-line searching. 

In fact, if DowQuest doesn’t 
get people on-line we have to 
wonder what will.

A Milestone for 
CompuServe 


It doesn’t seem that long ago that CompuServe sent 
us a press release emblazoned with a silver 250,000 
to announce it had reached the quarter-million mark 
in subscribers. Just recently, we received a less 
glitzy, but actually an even more impressive release, 
announcing that CompuServe had reached the half¬ 
million mark in “members.” 

CompuServe began in 1979 with fewer than 
1,000 subscribers. In announcing the present mile¬ 
stone, CompuServe’s president and chief executive 
officer, Charles W. McCall, noted that while other 
companies have entered the industry with a bang, 
they often were not able to offer services of real 
value to personal computer users. CompuServe, on 
the other hand, has never strayed far from its roots. 
Although it’s added new services over the years to 
broaden its market appeal, it’s always stressed com¬ 
munications, or, to quote McCall, “people using 
their personal computers as windows on the world 
to share ideas, exchange information, and apply it to 
their own personal and professional lives.” 

McCall also attributed CompuServe’s success to 
its “early understanding of the power and value of 
the personal computer, the value of providing high- 
quality and timely information, developing innova¬ 
tive products and services, and staying in touch with 
its members.” From our own experience, we can say 
that using CompuServe is fun as well as informative. 


4/89 

Still, we haven’t mentioned yet another reason 3 
for CompuServe’s success. Just the other day, when 
upgrading to a 2400 bps modem we were surprised 
to see that the modem came with a CompuServe 
password and 15 hours of on-line time. We 
shouldn’t have been. Perhaps more than any other 
on-line vendor, CompuServe has worked hard to 
forge marketing pacts with hardware and software 
vendors. When you buy a modem, there’s a good 
chance CompuServe will make your acquaintance, 
as well. Also. CompuServe membership kits are 
available at Radio Shack stores and Waldenbooks. 

So, to McCall’s list of reasons for CompuServe’s suc¬ 
cess, we would add smart, aggressive marketing. 

Finally, some controversy has brewed over just 
how CompuServe goes about compiling its 
subscriber base figures. Some would say, for exam¬ 
ple, that the tally represents passwords issued, and 
that usage is a completely different matter. Com¬ 
puServe assures us, however, that it purges its mem¬ 
bership rolls regularly to eliminate subscribers who 
have been inactive for a long time. Subscribers who 
show no activity after three to six months are con¬ 
tacted to determine their continuing interest in the 
on-line service. 

But no matter how you look at it, 500,000 users 
is impressive. It certainly reflects well on the present 
health of the on-line industry. 


A Shakeup at The 
Source 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Finally, early in 1989, they did. 
For example, The Source added a 
service enabling users of its popu¬ 
lar CHAT feature to communicate 
electronically with others for a flat 
fee of $25 per month and $3.90 
per hour (versus the standard 
4/89 $8.40 per hour). It also introduced 

4 a unique database, California 
Connections, which lists 
California-based job opportuni¬ 
ties. What’s more, The Source 
enhanced its electronic mail sys¬ 
tem to permit the transfer of bi¬ 
nary files within mail messages. 
Via the new feature, electronic 
mail communications can retain 
control characters, underlining, 
and other text enhancements. 


Normally, in standard ASCII 
communications, such enhance¬ 
ments are bleached out. These 
developments (and others) 
amounted to the most activity 
we’d seen from The Source in 
years. 

In the wake of this activity, we 
were surprised to learn that on 
February 14, 1989 The Source 
laid off 30 people, about a fourth 
of its work force. Most of the 
cuts, according to the Washington 
Post, came in the area of its busi¬ 
ness information services. These 
included Bizdate, a daily business 
tabloid. (That’s too bad since our 
mid-1988 hands-on evaluation of 
The Source found Bizdate to be a 
valuable service.) 

When we called The Source in 
mid-March to verify some details 
regarding this swirl of activity, the 


receptionist told us our contact, 
Nancy Beckman, “no longer 
works here anymore.” It turns out 
that Beckman left the company 
several months prior to our call 
(either she was laid off and the 
receptionist got the date wrong, or 
she jumped ship just short of the 
tidal wave). 

The Source still has many ad¬ 
vocates. Despite its lack of depth 
in some areas, we like its easy- 
to-navigate layout and applaud its 
free on-line tutorial. Here’s hop¬ 
ing The Source actually does re¬ 
main “a very strong company” as 
its president, Michael Sears, as¬ 
sured the Washington Post it 
would.

Highlights 

This month’s issue brings an update of the company and data¬ 
base profiles, in the J-R section. This section features over 200 
companies and over 600 databases. In addition to updating the 
existing profiles, we’ve also added some new ones. These include 
the Japan Free Press, which allows users to access information 
straight from Japan’s mass media—information that may not be 
accessible in English anywhere else. Another new database, 

New Technology Week, includes analyses of technological break¬ 
throughs in such areas as superconnectivity and magnetic levi¬ 
tation transport. 

Also of note this month is a revised report on Compu¬ 
Serve. CompuServe recently reached an important milestone: it 
hit the 500,000 subscriber mark. It’s the first on-line service to 
accomplish this. Despite its success, however, CompuServe has no 
time to bask in its achievement. It faces ever-increasing compe¬ 
tition from General Electric’s on-line service, GEnie. Read all 
about it in Report OL20-178-101. 

You’ll also find an updated report on Dow Jones News/ 
Retrieval. Dow Jones offers on-line services primarily of inter¬ 
est to the corporate user. Its new service, DowQuest, is interesting 
in that it allows a user to search the company’s text databases 
using everyday language, instead of formal search commands. See 
Report OL20-376-101 for more details. 

Finally, this issue contains an update on Data-Star. While 
well known in Europe, Data-Star is now gaining recognition in 
the U.S. as a source of information on business, engineering, 
and science. See Report OL20-348-101 for an in-depth look. □

Questel, Inc. 



Highlights 


For those of you who missed May’s National Online Meeting, 
the highlight of this month’s issue will be our newsletter, On-line 
Briefings. In it, you’ll find the show’s highlights and our analy¬ 
sis of the major industry trends. 

Other highlights of this month’s issue include five revised 
general services reports. “GE Information Services” (Report 
OL20-436-101) describes the company which first commercial¬ 
ized remote computing services but which is largely out of that 
business now and concentrating on other things. For example, 
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) services are receiving much of 
its attention. Also, its GEnie on-line information service now 
ranks number two in the industry, one step behind the undisput¬ 
ed leader, CompuServe. 

“Questel Inc.” (Report OL20-770-101) has added several 
new files to boost its stature as a leading vendor of patent, chemi¬ 
cal, and sci-tech files. It’s also added a new service, Markush 
DARC, a chemical database system for retrieving chemical struc¬ 
tures from patent documents. 

“General Videotex Corporation (GVC) Delphi” (Report 
OL20-438-101), a competitor of CompuServe and GEnie, now 
has 50,000 subscribers. It has added another regional off¬ 
shoot—Delphi/Kansas City. Delphi is also forging alliances with 
several of the Bell Operating Companies that are establishing 
information gateways. 

Other reports you’ll want to review include “AgriData Re¬ 
sources, Inc.” (Report OL20-018-101), the preeminent supplier of 
agricultural data on-line; and “QL Systems Limited” (Report 
OL20-764-101), a Canadian on-line vendor that has added a sub¬ 
stantial number of files to its repertoire. 

Finally, you’ll find addenda to the database and company 
profiles for the S-Z sections of the Directory.

Highlights 


This month’s On-line Briefings includes our thoughts on 
NEXIS News Plus, Mead Data Central’s (MDC’s) new front-end 
software package for searching its NEXIS news service. MDC 
is hoping that this new software package will entice end users to 
tap NEXIS, the premier source of on-line full-text information. 
Also included is an article on “dirty data”—typos, wrong infor¬ 
mation, and other errors that are increasingly finding their way 
into on-line databases. 

Aside from the newsletter, we have a full complement of 
updated general services reports this month. Topping the list is an 
updated report on the National Library of Medicine (Report 
OL20-674-101), the leading vendor/producer of biomedical data¬ 
bases. The NLM has added an important file—AIDSLINE— 
and introduced a new version of its Grateful Med front-end soft¬ 
ware package. 

The H.W. Wilson Company (Report OL20-450-101) now 
sees its CD-ROM products as contributing more revenue to the 
company than its on-line databases. Our revised report de¬ 
scribes what’s new on both fronts: the company’s on-line data¬ 
bases (available through its Wilsonline on-line services) and its 
CD-ROM products, marketed under the name WilsonDisc. 

Executive Telecom System, Inc.’s Human Resource Infor¬ 
mation Network is the only on-line service catering to personnel 
professionals. In the last year or so the company has added 
new databases, upgraded its processing center, and added a fax 
service. See our revised report (Report OL20-410-101) for the 
details. 

Undoubtedly, you’ve been hearing a lot about hypermedia 
and hypertext. For details on software packages that make use of 
this exciting information retrieval method, see our new feature 
report, An Overview of Hypertext and Hypermedia (Report 
OL70-650-101). 

Finally, we’ve added new company and database profiles 
to the A-C section of the Directory.

When Dirty Data 
Dances on Your Screen 


People tend to believe that “if it’s in print, it must be true” (bar¬ 
ring perhaps publications such as the National Enquirer). The 
same holds true for information that comes from on-line data¬ 
bases, only more so. People feel that if a computer “generated” 
the information, it has to be correct. Unfortunately, this can be a 
dangerous assumption. 

Obviously, on-line databases are only as accurate as the 
sources from which they are derived. Complicating matters, addi¬ 
tional errors can creep into on-line data during the information’s 
passage from hard copy to electronic form. 

Information integrity is already worrying some on-line data¬ 
base users. The Information Advisor, a new newsletter dedicated 
to data accuracy, recently asked its readers what topics they 
wanted future issues to cover. Topping the list of responses was 
“evaluating on-line data.” In subsequent research, including dis¬ 
cussions with database users and producers, the newsletter’s edi¬ 
tor, Robert Berkman, discovered errors in on-line data are 
rampant enough to stir widespread concern. 

Four types of errors exist. The first type is typographical er¬ 
rors. These create problems when they result in odd citations that 
appropriate searches will not retrieve. They can also cause prob¬ 
lems when they involve numbers. For example, a missing or addi¬ 
tional zero in a market research report can convey the wrong 
message about an industry’s prospects. While spelling checkers 
should eliminate most spelling errors, apparently not all vendors 
use them.

In describing some of the features 
of NEXIS News Plus, the new 
software package available for 
searching NEXIS, Mead Data 
Central Vice President Richard C. 
Anderson, Jr. shed some light on 
what’s keeping end users from 
going on-line. “While no one de¬ 
nies the importance of informa¬ 
tion in today’s world, few people 
have the stamina to pursue it,” 
Anderson said. 

Bingo! Therein lies the reason 
why many end users still don’t 
use databases. Despite the front 
ends, the menus, and the gate¬ 
ways, on-line databases remain 
arcane. Assuming you’ve mas¬ 
tered communications parame¬ 
ters, networks, passwords, and 
everything else that goes with us¬ 
ing a communications program, 
the biggest hurdle is still ahead of 
you. Those 4,500 databases are 
spread over hundreds of on-line 
services. Even the names of the 
files don’t necessarily give a clue 
as to their contents (consider ABI 
Inform and PI'S Promt). 

In recent months, a new gener¬ 
ation of front ends has debuted 
that makes searching easier than 
ever. In the world of software, 


however, help and ease of use typ¬ 
ically come at the cost of speed. 
Nowhere is this more evident 
than in NEXIS News Plus, an 
amazing information tool that, 
unfortunately, some users may 
find too slow. 

In fact, the program’s slowness 
is its biggest failing. Managers 
want information, yes, but they 
want it quickly. They figure that air 
computer should be capable of 
delivering facts as quickly as it 
crunches numbers. We’re far from 
that now. 

To its credit, NEXIS News 
Plus should make NEXIS users 
out of a lot of people who other¬ 
wise would not use this incredible 
database resource.

NEXIS News Plus: 
Accessibility 
at a Price 


Mead Data Central’s (MDC’s) 
success as an on-line vendor is 
mostly due to LEXIS, its on-line 
service for the legal profession. 
NEXIS, its news service, has 
never done as well. This is unfor¬ 
tunate because NEXIS contains 
the sources everyone is familiar 
with, in greater abundance than 
any other on-line service. Forbes, 
Newsweek, Time, and Fortune are 
all here, as are Mac Week, Info- 
World, and Scientific American. 
What’s more, these fdes go back 
further on NEXIS than they do 
on many other systems. For ex¬ 
ample, its loading of the Washing¬ 
ton Post dates back to 1977. 

While NEXIS has never lacked 
sources, accessibility and expense 
have kept its user ranks relatively 
small. NEXIS has been chipping 
away at the accessibility problem 
for years (e.g., you no longer need 
a dedicated terminal; anyone with 
a personal computer can access 
NEXIS). NEXIS’ new front-end 
package, NEXIS News Plus, re¬ 
portedly makes NEXIS even more 
accessible, and cheaper, too. 

MDC views the News Plus roll¬ 
out as a way to reintroduce 
NEXIS. A flashy media campaign 
is backing it, the details of which 
were still “embargoed” at the 
time of this writing. The 
campaign will reportedly include 
a giveaway of some sort 
(software?). This campaign may 


well be under way by the time 
you read this. 

News Plus costs a reasonable 
$50. Its target market is end users, 
the market that NEXIS has al¬ 
ways courted. “End users,” how¬ 
ever, encompass a lot of ground. 
Previously, most of NEXIS’ cus¬ 
tomers were journalists and public 
relations professionals. MDC is 
now after much bigger game—the 
lucrative business market—a mar¬ 
ket it no longer wants to concede 
to competitors such as DIALOG 
and Dow Jones/News Retrieval. 
“We’d like for CEOs to get on 
this and use it,” spokesperson 
Suzanne Quigley said. 

Does News Plus do what it sets 
out to do? Yes and no. It 
certainly makes getting at NEXIS’ 
information easier. News Plus 
breaks down NEXIS’ huge data¬ 
base clearly and cleverly, so you 
can zero in on the sources most 
likely to have the information you 
want. Also, you can scout out 
sources and formulate (and verify) 
a search strategy while off-line. 
With the on-line clock running at 
a $20-per-hour clip, that’s a real 
savings. The program also lets 
you save search strategies for later 
use and do things in background 
mode. 

Its major drawback is its slow¬ 
ness (see Editorial View, 
elsewhere in this newsletter). 


MDC recommends that you use 
News Plus on an AT or 386-class 
machine, and so do we. MDC 
also suggests users go in at 2400 
bps. (The program comes on eight 
diskettes, so installation takes 
more than a couple of minutes.) 

As the NEXIS technical staff ad¬ 
mitted, there is a lot of “I/O” 
(Input/Output) associated with 
using the software, which eats up 
a lot of time, and downloading to 
disk seems to take a lot longer 
than it did before. The program 
also takes up more than two 
megabytes of memory, placing it 
in the memory hog category. 

NEXIS News Plus is not for 
power users of NEXIS. Its slow¬ 
ness will frustrate such people. 
Fortunately, MDC’s original LEX- 
IS/NEXIS Communications Soft¬ 
ware remains available. But end 
users, such as managers, will find 
News Plus provides easy entree to 
NEXIS. The 45-minute telephone 
training, for example, provided 
free with purchase, is a valuable 
benefit. 

We look forward to new ver¬ 
sions of News Plus that perhaps 
trade off some of its extensive 
off-line help for greater speed. Re¬ 
gardless, NEXIS has come far 
since the days of its dedicated ter¬ 
minals. While we are not yet to 
the science fiction “instant-answer 
machines,” NEXIS News Plus 
certainly brings them closer.

Dirty Data 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Another problem is database 
coverage. A database may not 
cover either what it purports to or 
what you expect it will based on 
your interpretation of the ven¬ 
dor’s marketing materials. Cover¬ 
age varies with the vendor hosting 
the file. Increasing competition in 
the on-line industry has caused 
some vendors to make misleading 
claims about their files’ coverage. 

Next is the quality of indexing. 
Indexing is an imprecise science. 
Yet, to perform exacting searches, 
you need descriptors or other 
items that rely heavily on the 
quality and the consistency of the 
indexing. If the indexing is incon¬ 
sistent, users may be misled into 
thinking that information they 
want is not there. Good indexing 
can be a major problem with full- 
text files, where information is 
sometimes dumped into a data¬ 


base quickly with scant thought 
given to indexing. 

The fourth problem is errors in 
the original resource that carry 
over into the electronic version. 
The Los Angeles Times’ field re¬ 
porters now use portable fax ma¬ 
chines for submitting stories 
instead of laptops and modems, 
even though modem delivery 
feeds the information directly into 
the paper’s electronic publishing 
system. Why? When “modeming” 
information, noise on the phone 
line can cause a blip that changes 
a crucial number in a story. The 
Los Angeles Times is sensitive to 
this, but how many other infor¬ 
mation producers are? 

Obviously, you will not have 
the time to verify all the data that 
comes across your desk. About all 
you can do is be aware and dis¬ 
cerning, recognizing that errors 
are certainly possible. In the case 
of important research, for exam¬ 
ple, data on which a merger or 
acquisition hinges, numbers 


should be verified. Even “factual” 
information such as a company’s 
earnings for a given year can vary 
from database to database. 

As more information becomes 
available electronically, the issue 
of database quality will grow in 
parallel. Articles such as the one 
in The Information Advisor, and 
Barbara Quint’s regular Caveat 
Searcher column in the journal 
Database Searcher, perform a use¬ 
ful service by drawing attention to 
this issue. 

As a service to subscribers of 
the Datapro Directory of On-line 
Services, The Information Advisor 
will send a free copy of its April 
1989 newsletter, which focuses on 
the reliability of on-line informa¬ 
tion, to anyone requesting it.

Datapro Directory of 

On-line Services 

Highlights 

This month's On-line Briefings newsletter covers the big¬ 
gest story to hit the on-line industry since Knight-Ridder’s pur¬ 
chase of DIALOG: the unshackling of AT&T. Following a 
seven-year ban. Judge Greene recently ruled that AT&T can of¬ 
fer electronic information services of its own. AT&T has 
wanted to enter the market since 1982, and now there is nothing 
standing in its way. The rumors are flying as to what AT&T 
might do. This month’s newsletter covers the hoopla. It also re¬ 
introduces a popular feature. Database Potpourri , which will 
keep you abreast of new databases in between updates to the Di¬ 
rectory’s database sections. 

Aside from the newsletter, we’ve included updates to sev¬ 
eral of our general services reports. There’s an updated report on 
“DRI/McGraw-Hill” (Report OL20-345-101), a McGraw-Hill 
subsidiary. DRI/McGraw-Hill provides econometric forecasting 
and associated services to analysts in industry, finance, and 
government. 

We’ve also revised “I.P. Sharp Associates Limited” (A 
Reuter Company), a leading on-line database company specializ¬ 
ing in finance, economics, energy, and aviation. I.P. Sharp 
has developed a number of financial software products, includ¬ 
ing the Global Limits Control System , the market leader in 
global limits systems for foreign exchange and money trading. 

See our revised report (Report OL20-530-101) for more 
details. 

“ORBIT Search Service” (Report OL20-720-101), a divi¬ 
sion of the Maxwell Online. Inc. is a recognized leader in on-line 
information services. Second only to DIALOG, ORBIT spe¬ 
cializes in on-line information in the areas of patents, chemistry, 
engineering, and electronics.

Highlights 


This month’s Online Briefings covers the recent Information 
Industry trade show held September 10-13 at the New York Hil¬ 
ton. Also, the “Database Potpourri” section includes an¬ 
nouncements of new databases and services from the industry’s 
leading vendors. 

This month also brings updates to three of our general 
services reports. We’ve updated our CompuServe report to re¬ 
port on CompuServe’s buyout of The Source. CompuServe 
has begun announcing which of The Source’s services it will fea¬ 
ture. For all the details, see Report OL20-178-101. 

You’ll also find an updated report on GEnie (GE Net¬ 
work for Information Exchange). In less than four years, this 
consumer-oriented videotex service has attracted more than 
160,000 subscribers to gain the number two spot in its market. 
To stay competitive with CompuServe, GEnie has cut its 
prime time rates for 300, 1200, and 2400 baud access to only 
$18 per hour. GEnie now offers more than 100 on-line data¬ 
bases in various areas. See Report OL20-436-201 for more 
details. 

Finally, we update our information on DIALOG Infor¬ 
mation Services, Incorporated. Since January 1989, DIALOG 
has added more than 15 on-line databases, ranging from 
chemical engineering to insider stock trading. It also added sev¬ 
eral new training files to its ONTAP Database. To maintain 
its position as the industry’s leading database vendor, DIALOG 
has increased its CD-ROM offerings and also added the full 
text of several more*newspapers. For further informatiln on 
DIALOG, see Repo* OL20-366-101.'

Highlights 


As described in this month’s On-line Briefings, the biggest 
name in video games, Nintendo, is now hoping to duplicate this 
success in the on-line services market. The company recently 
announced it will team with Boston’s Fidelity Investments to 
create an on-line financial service providing portfolio man¬ 
agement, realtime trading of securities and mutual funds, and 
access to financial market information. 

Aside from the newsletter, we’ve included several up¬ 
dates to our general services and feature reports. “BRS Informa¬ 
tion Technologies” (Report OL20-106-101) is an operating 
division of Maxwell Online Inc. Since it became part of the 
Maxwell team, it now can compete with industry-leader DI¬ 
ALOG. BRS is a formidable vendor of on-line databases, offer¬ 
ing its 60,000 subscribers access to more than 150 databases. 
Primary markets for its services are libraries, medical and phar¬ 
maceutical firms, and physicians. 

“Mead Data Central” (Report OL20-630-101), best 
known for its LEXIS on-line legal information service, also of¬ 
fers its subscribers, NEXIS, a full-text information service 
containing information from more than 650 business, financial, 
technical, and news sources. 

This issue also brings an addendum to the company and 
database profile sections (J-R). Some of the highlighted vendors 
and the databases they offer are McGraw-Hill News, a sub¬ 
sidiary of McGraw-Hill, Inc., offering a database by the same 
name, McGraw-Hill News ; Technical Data Global Markets 
Group, which offers its newest databases— MortgageData, Mon- 
eyData, and PriceData: and Executive Telecom System, Inc., 
which introduced Personnel Practices Survey Database, Manag¬ 
ing End User Computing For Users With Disabilities, and 
Military in Transition.

Highlights 

This month’s On-line Briefings highlights three important com¬ 
panies’ activities for the past year. Activity in the on-line indus¬ 
try in 1989 included acquisitions, plenty of new on-line 
databases, and new CD-ROM developments. Read all about how 
DIALOG, BRS, and NewsNet made 1989 such a successful year. 

This month also brings updates to three of our general ser¬ 
vices reports. We’ve updated our report on the European Space 
Agency-Information Retrieval Service (ESA-IRS) to report on 
ESA’s new pricing strategy. Included in the report is an updated 
table on all of ESA’s databases and how the new pricing policy 
affects each database. See Report OL20-405-101 for all the 
details. 

We’ve also updated our report on The WEFA Group 
(Report OL20-970-101). 

WEFA still continues to offer a wide selection of on-line 
economic, financial, and demographic information services. The 
On-Line Database section of the report describes the selection 
that The WEFA Group has to offer. Finally, we’ve included an 
update of our West Publishing Company report. West Publishing 
Company offers a computer-assisted legal research service, 
WESTLAW. Numerous publication databases are added 
monthly. Refer to Report OL20-980-101 to review the materials 
recently added to the WESTLAW on-line service.

1989: The Year in 
Review 


Database Potpourri.3 

With the conclusion of another year—and the ’80s—we can 
look back and say 1989 was an industrious year for the on-line 
industry. Acquisitions; CD-ROM developments; new system 
features/enhancements; and, of course, new on-line databases all 
contributed to making 1989 another sensational year. 

All of the vendors discussed in this newsletter have en¬ 
hanced their services. All have contributed something signifi¬ 
cant to the industry, helping them toward their goal of eventual 
leadership in their specialty. 

DIALOG, a Knight-Ridder, Inc. subsidiary, had a strong 
showing in 1989. It provided products and services tailored to 
its users’ needs and specifications. Here’s some of the highlights 
that made 1989 another successful year for DIALOG. 

System Features —the Profile Feature was added in May 
1989. It allows users to store SET commands that customize 
DIALOG to their needs. The SORT command was also changed 
in May to increase the maximum number of items in a set that 
can be sorted. In July, DIALOG introduced the SET SELECT 
command. This allows control of the display of intermediate 
search results that appear in response to users’ SELECT com¬ 
mands. In September, a special feature was added to enable 
keeping track of on-line costs. If telecommunications difficulties 
ever cause you to be disconnected from DIALOG in the middle 
of a search, a cost estimate message will be displayed when you 
log on again.

Prodigy, an interactive personal 
service from IBM and Sears, al¬ 
lows you to view the latest news 
and sports, buy and sell stocks, 
learn from educational features, 
shop, and much more. Basically, 
it’s for the home computer enthu¬ 
siast. Its price is attractive: $9.95- 
per-month flat rate. 

I took a stab at discovering 
what Prodigy was like. The ser¬ 
vice claims in its start-up kit 
booklet that “getting around is 
easy on Prodigy.” Well, they were 
right. I found the documentation 
very helpful in learning how to 
load the software and in explain¬ 
ing the basic commands you need 
to know before actually logging 
on to the service. 

Well, okay. I read the booklet 
from beginning to end and was 
ready to start. I logged in and hit 
the RETURN key for the head¬ 
line news of the day and was able 
to view a timely news story about 
a mass murder in Canada. 

Using the JUMP command, I 
moved on to another area . . . 
travel. The system provided me 
with 11 options. I enjoy flying 
American Airlines (AA) and de¬ 
cided to view some fare listings 
from EAASY SABRE. The only 


problem I encountered was that I 
had to wade through many 
screens of text just to enter the 
service. I can understand why 
nonmembers would have to do 
this, but I’m already a member! A 
solution to this problem would be 
to have separate menus for those 
who already belong and for those 
who want to join. 

Prodigy includes ads on the 
bottom quarter of each new 
screen of nonadvertiser informa¬ 
tion. These advertisements, along 
with the entire system, contain 
eye-pleasing graphics. 

In sum, Sears and IBM pro¬ 
duced a well-rounded product. It 
offers something for everyone in 
a household, whether one is inter¬ 
ested in learning about comput¬ 
ers, checking the weather to plan 
a vacation, or outsmarting every¬ 
one else by beating the hustle- 
bustle of Christmas shopping. 

Although I’ve only explored 
one small part of the Prodigy ser¬ 
vice, it certainly seems to possess 
a wealth of information available 
at your fingertips. I applaud the 
creators of Prodigy and hope to 
be seeing more from the service.

Review 

(Continued from Page 1) 

On-Line Documentation — 

additional on-line documentation 
was added in September, and a 
new on-line HELP command was 
introduced. Options to the HELP 
command were also added, in¬ 
cluding descriptions of the output 
format options for each database 
1/90 on DIALOG. The last system fea- 
4 ture that was added in 1989 was 
DIALOG HOMEBASE, a data¬ 
base designed for DIALOG 
searchers that provides menu- 
assisted access to DIALOG’S on¬ 
line documentation. 

DIALOG Alert Service — 
formerly the Selective Dissemina¬ 
tion of Information SDI 
service—was updated and en¬ 
hanced in September. DIALOG 
Alert Service helps you stay up¬ 
dated and informed about topics 
of importance to you and your 
clients. 

New Databases —32 were 
added in 1989 ranging from 
chemical hazards data to business 
information. Seven new ONTAP 
files were also added in 1989. As 
the year ended, DIALOG now 
offers more than 200 million in¬ 
dividual records. 

Services and Products — 
Knowledge Index and DIALOG 
Classmate were expanded to all 
of the countries that offer regular 
DIALOG services. 

DIALMAIL —in Lebruary, the 
WITHDRAW command was 
added to allow bulletin board us¬ 
ers to withdraw their names from 
any bulletin board to which they 
are a member. Also, this feature 
may be used by bulletin board 
sponsors who wish to remove 
their bulletin board once it has 
served its purpose. In May, DIA¬ 


LOG added the ability tolfeceive 
image output from the databases 
TRADEMARKSCAN—Federal 
and HEILBRON through DIAL- 
MAIL. Linally, several new in¬ 
box settings were added to give 
users more flexibility in managing 
personal messages. 

DIALOG Business 
Connection —this menu-assisted 
front end to key business and fi¬ 
nancial information was added as 
a new option to DIALOG’S main 
service last May. This option also 
includes the latest business news 
from McGraw-Hill News. 

Lor further information, con¬ 
tact DIALOG’S Marketing De¬ 
partment at (800) 334-2564. 

BRS Information 
Technologies —BRS was acquired 
by Macmillan Inc. in January and 
was later folded into Maxwell 
Online. In October, BRS moved 
from Latham, New York to the 
Official Airline Guide (OAG) fa¬ 
cility outside Chicago. Illinois. 
Once there, BRS joined the OR¬ 
BIT Search Service (another divi¬ 
sion of Maxwell Online, Inc.) at 
this facility. 

BRS added eight new data¬ 
bases and four new on-line medi¬ 
cal journals. New system features 
on BRS/Search Service included 
LINK, SAVE, and SORT. On 
Colleague and MENUS, the 
LINK feature was added. Col¬ 
league Encore, an SDI or current 
awareness service, was added to 
Colleague. Colleague Screens 
Simplified was enhanced to sim¬ 
plify the Colleague Main Menu, 
and the SORT function was 
added to all three of the services. 

Enhancements were made to 
the MEDLINE database, includ¬ 
ing monthly updates; the ability 
to run SDIs once or twice a 
month; a full-text (LT) market 


that indicates full-text availability 
of the journal in CCML; and two 
new BRS “search only” age de¬ 
scriptors that make it easier to 
restrict a search to age 18 and 
under and age 19 and over. 

NewsNet, last year, added 
more than 70 new publications in 
areas such as aerospace and avia¬ 
tion, manufacturing, electronics 
and computers, research and de¬ 
velopment, and telecommunica¬ 
tions. Last June, NewsNet 
released new user documentation 
for the first time in five years. 
This rewritten user documenta¬ 
tion incorporates features re¬ 
quested by users: detailed 
examples and explanations, 
shoulder notes, and marked sec¬ 
tions. 

Business Wire —was added to 
NewsNet’s roster of newswires. 
Continuously updated, it includes 
corporate press releases from the 
nation’s most important corpora¬ 
tions. 

PR Newswire —formerly up¬ 
dated hourly, was enhanced to 
deliver articles continuously. The 
five wires from United Press In¬ 
ternational were made readable, 
scannable, and searchable. The 
articles from these wires are ac¬ 
cessible in full text instantly and 
can be searched by keyword 
phrase within an hour of release. 

TR W Business Profiles was en¬ 
hanced to allow retrieval of mul¬ 
tiple reports for a single report 
fee. Improved paging capabilities 
were also introduced, along with 
executive summaries of larger 
reports.

Product Summary 


Description 

Relational database management 


Strengths 

Rich functionality, extensive porta¬ 
bility. and transaction processing 
capabilities are Oracle’s outstanding 
features. Its ability to run on over 80 
different hardware platforms under a 
wide range of operating system envi¬ 
ronments. while retaining the same 
logic and same operational features, 
certainly makes Oracle an important 
system to evaluate. 

[.imitations 

Although Oracle Corporation is 
highly user oriented, the profusion of 
new features and functions may have 
a negative impact. With so much ac¬ 
tivity promised, occasional slips in 
anticipated delivery dates occur. An¬ 
other problem could be the cost of 
OLTP. The transaction processing 
option is very expensive: in many 
cases, equaling the cost of the RD¬ 
BMS base system.

at the top of page two in all 
product reports. 




Analysis 


Background 

Oracle Is a Siriicliiretl Query I ungiuigi: (SOI), 
based, high-performance relational database man¬ 
agement system (RDBMS) compatible with IHM's 
DH2 and SQI./I>S systems. Without a doubt. Ora¬ 
cle is the most publicized KDBMS on the market, 
there is no trade paper or journal that does not 
carry an ad or an article detailing the various ver¬ 
sions ol Oracle for use in myriad hardware/ 
suit ware configurations. Vendor announcements of 
new platforms supported and agreements entered 
into also are made on a frec|iient basis. 

Oracle earned the honor of being the first 
commercially available SQ1 -bused KDBMS on the 
market. Introduced in I') 7’), Oiaclc has become 
one of the most powerful forces in the KDBMS 
market, overshadowed only by IBM’s own DB2. 
Oracle was initially introduced lot the Digital 
VAX system; the company only recently an¬ 
nounced the availability of its MVS version. DB2. 
on the other hand, runs only on the large MVS- 
based mainframe. 

Besides prov id mg all the standard and ac¬ 
cepted KDBMS features and facilities. Oracle pro¬ 
vides a variety of extended features, 
enhancements, and applications tools. I lie latest 
release til Oracle (Version ft.O) also supports an 
on-line transaction processing option that report¬ 
edly provides extensive production throughput, 
t his option, coupled with its distributed database 
processing capabilities, makes (trade one of the 
most complete KDBMSson the market. 


Marketing Strategy 

Portability, connectahilily. ami compatibility best 
describe the Oracle KDBMS and its associated op¬ 
tions. I here are versions for over XU different com¬ 
puter models from personal computers to the 
largest mainframe. Any Oracle program can be 


ny of these platforms to un- 
hoiit any modification. Applica¬ 
tions developed with Oracle's fourth-generation 
language (4( >I.) are portable to any computer sup¬ 
porting Oracle. Oracle ( orporalion also prov ides a 
full line of applications-orientcd products for end- 
user implementation. New additions to its exten¬ 
sive product list are the vendor's computer-aided 
systems engineering (( ASI ) tools, designed to in¬ 
teract with Oracle as well as IBM DB2 databases. 

I he initial release of this product tuns on MS- 
DOS. VAX/VMS. and the Sun i:\IX platforms, 
future releases will expand the range of machines 
supported. 

Oracle Corporation. founded m l')77. lias 
doubled its revenues in ') of the III years since the 
release of the Oracle KDBMS. In l‘>X4. Oracle 
I I.K. was set up in the l billed Kingdom to service 
the I uropcan market. Oracle (’orporalion has been 
very busy this past year. I he company formed a 
new Retail Sales Div ision to supply retail compa¬ 
nies with Oracle-based solutions to their business 
problems. It signed a contract with the National 
( ompuier Security ('enter INC S< ) to develop ex¬ 
tended Department of Defense security standards 
for the Oracle KDBMS to make it conform to 
N( SO specifications. In addition. Oracle Corpora¬ 
tion formed an Office Automat ion Div ision to de¬ 
velop and market a full line of portable, distributed 
products to address office management problems. 
Its lirst product. Oracle'Mail. is an office informa¬ 
tion and eomniMiiical ions system. It is currently 
available for use with V AX minicomputers and 
Sun UNIX-based workstations. Kcccmly. Oracle 
announced a joint venture with NCuhe. manufac¬ 
turer of a new supercomputer system, to develop a 
version of Oracle KDBMS for that lugh-volumc 
transaction env ironment. 

Oracle Corporation has been very active in 
support of the UNIX standards efforts currently 
underway. It has joined both the Open Software 
I oundation and the A I A: I -sponsored UNIX Inter¬ 
national group, supporting both the X/Opcn and 
I’OSI.X specifications to promote an open, portable 
application env ironment. Oracle has also joined 
many other vendors in promoting system integra¬ 
tion operations. By ucc|uiring falcon Systems of 
Bethesda. Maryland (a government-based systems 
integrator) and incorporating it witli its own Oracle 
Complex Systems Corporation subsidiary. Oracle 


Datapro’s staff of industry 
analysts writes the Analysis to 
focus on the most important 
concerns of managers, such as: 

• Product Strategy 

• User Opinion 

• Company Profile 

• Decision Points 

• Competitive Position

moM-likcd feature* of the sy stem. As one user savs. 
’’It may not he the fastest DBMS on the market, 
but it runs on just about everything." following 
closely on the heels of portability are the vendor's 
support facilities. Several users rale the telephone 
support "excellent." 

Other options these users like include SOI .'QMX. 
SOI 'l oader. SOI 'Plus, and SOI 'Net. Oracle's 
compatibility with other DBMSs and its ability to 
handle very large databases (up to IIHKi bytes in 
one installation) are other features mentioned by 
some users as outstanding. 

Areas these users feel need attention include docu¬ 
mentation and reporting capabilities. The docu¬ 
mentation is labeled "awful", "inaccurate", and 
generally "poor". The SOI *Report facility is 
found to be "useless" and "archaic." One user 
cited Oracle's lack of an adequate backup facility. 

A VMS user does not like not being able to drop 
partitions without reinitialising the database. An¬ 
other says that the dale and time manipulation ca¬ 
pabilities are awkward to use. 

I he liming and quality ol new releases is another 
area that needs improvement. Several users note 
the many slipped schedules; one says that "update 
schedules are kept secret." Other users say that the 
releases are not fully tested when distributed. 

Many users also object to the high cost of the sys¬ 
tem and its options. One user comments. "Oracle 
Corporation has a tendency to create products 
which replace existing tools and force current users 
to purchase them at an additional cost instead of 
including them in the maintenance release." An¬ 
other user complains that the pricing lor the run¬ 
time license is "outrageous." and that the quoted 
discounts for add-on options are only applicable 
when the options are acquired at the same time the 
base system is licensed. 

Almost every one of these respondents had evalu¬ 
ated several competitive products before selecting 
Oracle. In most cases. Oracle was chosen because 
of ns SQI orientation, its use over a wide range of 
hardware, and because it enhanced the application 
development cycle. With very few exceptions, users 
seem to be able to realize these goals. I I 



Characteristics 


The Oracle relational database management system 
(RDBMS) comprises the kernel, an integrated data dic¬ 
tionary. and a variety ol all-purpose database utilities to 
handle all generalized database management system 
(DBMS) operations The SQL query language is at the 
heart ol the RDBMS, with many optional facilities for 
tailoring the Oracle environment With the release ol 
Version 6 0. Oracle Corporation has added the Transac¬ 
tion Processing System (TPS) option, which promises to 
deliver very high levels ol transaction processing while 
supporting large database files 

Oracle is highly portable and currently supports 
over 80 different machine configurations from the IBM 
MVS mainframe environment down to the PC-DOS envi¬ 
ronment on 80386 and PS/2 microcomputers There is 
also a version of Oracle that can be used with IBM s 
DOS/VSE/SP operating configuration 

Database Structure 

Oracle supports the standard physical and logical file 
structures associated with relational data structures A 
maximum of 64.000 relations can be supported within a 
maximum database size of 4 terabytes (4.000 gi¬ 
gabytes) With the Set-at-a-Time Array Processing facil¬ 
ity. Oracle can move entire sets of data, allowing arrays 
of thousands of records to be manipulated with a single 
database command A variety of physical structures can 
be supported 

Oracle defines two table types stored tables and 
user views Stored tables are real tables, such as rela¬ 
tions. permanent indexes, and, by extrapolation, the 
data dictionary These tables are built and maintained 
by Oracle software User views are virtual relations that 
behave exactly as real relations but do not occupy stor¬ 
age space. A balanced hierarchy of indexes (B-trees) 
handles indexing Controls are manipulated through Or¬ 
acle s all-purpose SQL language and are largely trans¬ 
parent to the user 

Development And Manipulation Facilities 

SQL: SQL defines and manipulates all relations, in¬ 
dexes. and the data dictionary Any column within a re¬ 
lation can have an index associated with it, which 
means that the entire file can be inverted 

Data manipulation is handled by CALLS to SQL 
The Selection-by-Critena query facility supports up to 


This includes a detailed listing of the 
product’s specifications, technical 
descriptions, and pricing.

Highlights 

This month’s On-line Briefings newsletter features an article on 
Mead Data Central’s newest innovation, Real-Time Stock 
Quotes, available on-line through Mead’s LEXIS and NEXIS ser¬ 
vice. In addition to the New York and American stock ex¬ 
changes, quotes are available from all U.S. regional stock 
exchanges, Canadian stock exchanges, and NASDAQ and 
NASDAQ/National Market System, with no time delay. Read all 
about how Mead has enhanced its already vast services. 

Also this month we’ve updated three of our tutorials. The 
learning tools contained in the tutorial section include primers 
(or basic reports) about on-line searching. The section is designed 
for both novice and more experienced searchers: The reports 
build on one another, advancing from the general to the specific. 
The first tutorial, “An Overview of On-line Databases,” shows 
you how and why on-line databases are created. You’ll learn the 
differences among various types of databases and how to decide 
when going on-line makes sense and when it does not. Read all 
about this and much more in the tutorial section (OLIO-100- 
101). “How to Look it Up Online” (OL10-200-101) describes the 
best way to use a vendor’s customer service staff for search assis¬ 
tance, how to plan an on-line search strategy, how to comprehend 
the elements that make up an on-line citation, and also how to 
formulate a search strategy to your best advantage. Finally, the 
third tutorial, “Using On-Line Databases for Competitive 
Analysis,” teaches you to assess the value of on-line databases for 
performing competitive analysis research, to pinpoint databases 
that may be valuable to your research, and how to use those data¬ 
bases effectively.

On-Line Stock Quotes 
Debut on MDC 


Database Potpourri.3 

Mead Data Central, Inc. (MDC), provider of the world’s leading 
full-text, computer-assisted electronic information services, 
LEXIS and NEXIS, took a huge step recently by giving its sub¬ 
scribers access to stock quotations. 

So what’s novel about having stock quotations go on-line 
since it has been done before? Well, MDC, along with its sub¬ 
sidiary, Canadian financial services company Dataline, Inc., has 
provided a gateway in which stock quotes can be viewed with 
absolutely no time delay. Realtime quotes can be requested for 
equities, bonds, mutual funds, and money market funds. Not 
only are quotes available from the New York Stock Exchange 
but also from all U.S. regional stock exchanges, all Canadian 
stock exchanges, NASDAQ, and the NASDAQ/National Market 
System. You also have additional access to current Dow Jones 
Averages, S&P Indices, and market summaries from the New 
York and American stock exchanges. 

LEXIS and NEXIS subscribers can access this valuable in¬ 
formation through a menu-driven service that’s part of MDC’s 
QUOTE library on the LEXIS Financial Information service. 
Three main features are available from the QUOTE library. 
Subscribers can view a realtime quote on a company through 
the menu’s QUOTE FINDER option; request a realtime update 
on an item in their own “electronic portfolio” with the QUOTE 
SAVER option; or may check a market indicator, such as the 
New York Stock Exchange market summary. 

The QUOTE SAVER option is probably the most fascinat¬ 
ing feature of Mead’s new stock quote service.

CompuServe recently debuted a 
new software package, Compu¬ 
Serve Information Manager 
(CIM), expressly designed to 
make using its service simple and 
productive. Reminiscent of Prod¬ 
igy, it includes pull-down win¬ 
dows and memo-like templates 
for creating electronic messages. 

It also includes a “file cabinet” 
feature that makes organizing 
electronic mail a breeze. But most 
importantly, CIM makes it much 
easier to learn and navigate the 
system. 

A lengthy learning curve was a 
barrier for CompuServe users, 
because the system includes so 
much and so many different 
kinds of information. After all, 
just getting on-line entails enough 
of a learning curve. Once the new 
user has jumped that hurdle, the 
vendor should make things as 
easy as possible rather than pre¬ 
sent another horrendous learning 
curve. 


Information Manager doesn’t 
eliminate the CompuServe learn¬ 
ing curve, but it certainly short¬ 
ens it. For me, it also made 
getting around the system so 
much easier that I found I was 
soon exploring areas of the ser¬ 
vice I had never looked at before 
Naturally that benefited me, but 
it also benefited CompuServe 
since my on-line sessions grew 
longer. (Note: At $29.95, plus a 
$15.00 usage credit, CompuServe 
is practically giving CIM away.) 

CIM is not without its glitches 
Although CompuServe’s spokes- 
people say it isn’t so, it seems to 
take longer to do things if you an 
using CIM. Also, it occasionally 
throws you off-line for no appar¬ 
ent reason, or gets “frozen,” re¬ 
quiring the user to reboot. 

Still, CIM breaks new ground. 
I encourage present CompuServe 
users to try it, and new Compu¬ 
Serve users to use it to learn the 
system.

Database Potpourri 


I nformation Access Company 
(IAC) recently announced that 
Data Research Associates, Inc. 
held its first public showing of 
selected IAC databases for on-line 
access via Data Research’s Public 
Access Catalog System. Data Re¬ 
search users will be able to access 
the IAC databases through the 
same terminals and protocol now 
used to search the library’s book 
catalog. 

The first database offered was 
General Periodicals Index (Aca¬ 
demic and Public Library edi¬ 
tions each providing indexes to 
more than 1,000 magazines and 
journals widely used in under¬ 
graduate studies and for general 
reference). Also included are 
other IAC databases, offered in 
CD-ROM and on-line. 

For more information on this 
database, contact Veronica Kane 
at (415) 364-5662, or Information 
Access Company, 362 Lakeside 
Drive, Foster City, CA 94404. 
Telephone (415) 378-5000. 

GE Information Services re¬ 
cently added two more services 
on its GEnie system; one to its 
menu service and the other on 
the RoundTable service. 

Computer-Assisted Learning 
Center (CALC) was added to GE- 
nie’s menu service and offers a 
variety of on-line educational ser¬ 
vices. Based in Rochester, NY, 


CALC opened its first network 
campus in 1986 and is now 
among the leaders in on-line 
classroom instruction, with four 
national campuses. CALC also 
provides on-line, supplemental 
educational services for its stu¬ 
dents, such as academic and ca¬ 
reer counseling, the CALC 
Student Union for on-line chats 
among students, and a large selec¬ 
tion of on-line quizzes for fun. 

A Unix RoundTable is now 
available on GEnie, joining the 
other services on its menu of Per¬ 
sonal Computing RoundTables. 
The Unix RoundTable is a forum 
for first-time users of AT&T’s 
UNIX Operating System to help 
them learn its ins and outs and 
how to program in the UNIX en¬ 
vironment. There is also a sepa¬ 
rate section for experienced users. 
Subjects to be discussed include, 
but are not limited to, Hardware 
Platforms, UNIX Dialects, UNIX 
Shells and Scripts, Applications, 
Communications, Calendar of 
Events, Resources, Training, Se¬ 
curity, and Graphical User Inter¬ 
faces. Other UNIX-like operating 
systems (i.e., the Xenix operating 
system) will also be covered in 
this RoundTable. 

For further information about 
the GEnie service and the on-line 
sign-up procedure, call (800) 638- 
9636. or contact GE Information

preferences of the affluent. 

• Minority Markets Alert —

ican consumers, minority groups 
that may soon take up a majority 
of the population in the United 
States. 

• Youth Markets Alert —reveals 
developments in the teen and 
young adult groups, giving mar¬ 
keters a competitive edge with 
these fickle but powerful consum¬ 
ers. 

For more information on these 
four newsletters, contact either

Avenue, Long Island City, NY

West Publishing Company re¬

its WESTLAW system. 

• West’s Legal Directory — 
enables the subscriber to identify 
lawyers and law firms by spe¬ 
cialty areas, clients, professional 
affiliations, and a variety of other 
characteristics. The customers 
can use this on-line directory to 
research opposing counsel, refer 
clients to other attorneys, find 
current name and address infor¬ 
mation, or simply advertise their 
own qualifications.

On-Line Stock Quotes 

(Continued from Page 1) 

The customer can build an 
“electronic portfolio” of up to 50 
stocks, showing for each stock 
how many shares are held. After 
the quotes are saved in the port¬ 
folio, you can request an update 
for quotes one by one or all at 
once. The information included 
with each quote includes the last 
trade, net change, volume, 
bid/ask price, open, dividend, 
yield, earnings, P/E ratio, and the 
yearly high and low. 

In addition to MDC’s normal 
connect and telecommunications 
charges, ($22/hour connect time 
and $ 13/hour telecommunica¬ 
tions), each quote requested 
through the QUOTE FINDER or 
QUOTE SAVER menus costs $1. 
Possibly MDC’s next step in this 
area would be to let its subscrib¬ 
ers buy and sell their stocks on¬ 
line, now that they have access to 
realtime stock quotes.

Highlights 

If you need the most current information about on-line data¬ 
bases, or the companies that produce or market them, then 
April’s issue is for you. We’ve updated the D-I sections of data¬ 
base and company profiles, contacting hundreds of companies in 
the process. But we’ve done more than simply revise existing in¬ 
formation. We’ve also added new company and database pro¬ 
files. 

April’s On-line Briefings newsletter includes an article that 
should interest anyone who goes on-line. It centers on 2400-bps 
modems, which have now become the standard for business com¬ 
munications. Especially important are the rating’s provided by 
the National Software Testing Laboratory (NSTL). NSTL pro¬ 
vides a full range of software and hardware testing services. 

Next month’s issue includes an important update to our tu¬ 
torial section of reports. It also features a report on working with 
information brokers, written by one of the leading authorities in 
the field.

NSTL Rates 2400 bps 
Modems 


It seems just a short time ago that acoustic coupler modems 
transmitting at a mere 300 bps were the rage. Then, 1200 bps 
modems moved in. Now, few would deny that 2400 bps mo¬ 
dems are the standard for business communications. While 
9600 bps modems will soon be more commonly used (see 
March 1990’s On-line Briefings), 2400 bps modems for the 
foreseeable future will remain more versatile and cost-effective. 
With most on-line vendors charging a minimal or even no price 
differential between 1200 and 2400 bps access, and the prices 
of the modems themselves comparable, there is really little rea¬ 
son not to move up to 2400 access. 

PC Digest, a publication from Datapro’s National Software 
Testing Laboratories (NSTL), recently reported the results of 
NSTL’s evaluation of 2400 bps modems. The results are some¬ 
what surprising. The NSTL reviewers carefully considered the 
modems’ AT command set compatibility, ease of configuration 
and installation, and handling of impaired line conditions. 

Because all the modems operate at the same speed, error 
correction and data compression protocols are the most impor¬ 
tant factors in selecting a 2400 bps modem. These protocols 
determine a modem’s capability to communicate with other 
manufacturers’ modems using error correction and data com¬ 
pression to provide maximum throughput. 

The findings showed that modems vary considerably in 
features, performance, usability, and compatibility. Also, as you 
might expect, they also vary quite widely in price. There are 
more than 125 manufacturers of 2400 bps modems, and prices 
range from under Si00 to over $1,000. Top vendor Hayes may 
be right when it suggests that modems have yet to become a 
commodity item, much like personal computers.

Soviet Thaw 
Prompts 

Information Flow 


Soviet and American information 
professionals are getting together 
to capitalize on a big marketing 
opportunity: Americans are hun¬ 
gry for information about the So¬ 
viet Union. While Soviet 
mathematical and health sciences 
journals have been heavily trans¬ 
lated, there is much more that 
needs to be brought to light. In 
fact, “There is a dearth of infor¬ 
mation about the Soviet Union,” 
says Paul Zurkowski, who for 20 
years headed the U.S.-based In¬ 
formation Industry Association 
(II A). 

In a move to tap into this in¬ 
formation. in October 1989 the 
First East-West Online Informa¬ 
tion Meeting was held in Mos¬ 
cow. The 3,000 Soviet attendees 
“stripped bare” all the exhibitor 
information in a little more than 
a day, said Zurkowski, who 
served as a session chairman. The 
International Center for Scientific 
and Technical Information, the 
meeting’s Soviet sponsor, was 
joined by Learned Information, 
Ltd., of Oxford, England which 
cosponsored the event. Well 
aware of the great worldwide in¬ 
terest in their country, the Soviets 
were there to forge deals with 
American and European database 
vendors. 

Since the meeting, there has 
been a lot of discussion between 


American database producers and 
Soviet information providers. 
Also, an East/West Information 
Consortium has formed, to work 
.toward making Eastern European 
information available to the 
West. No products have resulted 
yet, but according to Zurkowski, 
some are in the works. 

Zurkowski, now president of 
the Maryland-based start-up, 
Ventures in Information, has 
published a report called “The 
Soviet Precinct,” listing the 200+ 
Soviet information providers at 
the Online Information Meeting, 
from various associations to the 
Soviet Academy of Science Agen¬ 
cies. For more information, con¬ 
tact Ventures in Information, 

8027 Ellingston Drive, Chevy 
Chase, MD 20815. Telephone 
(301) 565-5029. 

Zurkowski could not discuss 
these ‘in-the-works” products, but 
he did share a recent conversa¬ 
tion he had with a major Soviet 
telephone company executive. 

The Soviet telco is looking to get 
into videotex and wanted to tap 
Zurkowski’s expertise in the area. 
Perhaps a Soviet version of 
France’s famous Minitel services 
is in the offing. Stranger things 
have happened recently.

detail, or perhaps you ask the system to find spread¬ 
sheet programs that meet your exact needs. With 
another click of the mouse, the voice of a Datapro 
expert takes you on a tour of the key strengths and 
weaknesses of a given program, complete with a real¬ 
time look at the program in action. When you are 
finished, you have a total feel for a product—how it 
works, what it looks like, how it compares to others, 
and its cost. 

Just another daydream? Hardly. The Datapro 
Consultant (Macintosh Edition), the first in a line of 
CD-ROM-based products in the Datapro Consult¬ 
ant product line, allows you to do all that and more.

Datapro Consultant Wins Technology Award 

McGraw-Hill Chairman and CEO Joseph L. Di¬ 
onne recently presented John Cole and Thom 
Holmes of Datapro’s Electronic Publishing Depart¬ 
ment with an Information Technology Award for 
the Datapro Consultant (Macintosh Edition). The 
award was given for “multimedia product design for 
the Macintosh computer platform.” In particular, 
Dionne cited the Datapro Consultant as an innova¬ 
tive way to present information to customers. The 
Datapro Consultant is McGraw-Hill’s first multime¬ 
dia information service.

NSTL Rates 2400 bps Modems 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Figure 1 provides an overview of NSTL’s findings. 
Of the modems listed. NSTL recommends two mo¬ 
dems in particular: the Hayes VS Smartmodem 
2400 V.42 and the ATI 2400etc/e. NSTL found the 
Hayes modem easy to configure and superior in 
performance. At $650, however, it’s expensive. The 
ATI modem, while it does not offer the perfor¬ 
mance of the Hayes modem, at $299 is a “good 
4/90 low-cost alternative,” according to NSTT.

Highlights 


It’s a big month for librarians! First there’s a report on 
“ALANET,” the American Library Association’s (ALA’s) elec¬ 
tronic information service. ALANET provides information pri¬ 
marily for librarians—public, academic, and, to some extent 
corporate. Aside from offering direct access to library-related da¬ 
tabases, ALANET subscribers can “gateway” to databases from 
VU/TEXT Information Services, Inc., and Dow Jones News/ 
Retrieval. See Report (OL20-024-101) for more details. 

Next, we’ve revised the OCLC Online Computer Library 
Center, Inc. report. OCLC provides computer-based products 
and services for libraries and educational organizations. OCLC 
operates an international computer network that librarians use to 
acquire and catalog books, order custom-printed catalog cards, 
and locate books. For further information on OCLC, see (Report 
OL20-697-101). 

We also enhanced two of our tutorials this month by revis¬ 
ing two key reports. The first report was developed by Ronald G. 
Albright, Jr., M.D., who provides a clear, concise picture of what 
medical database searching is all about. After reading “Accessing 
the Medical Literature On-line” (Report OL10-600-101), you’ll 
realize how effective and useful medical databases are. 

Information brokers provide research help to companies on 
a fee-paid basis. Almost any company, at times, could use their 
services. But how do you hire an information broker? What ex¬ 
actly does an information broker do? For the answers, see Report 
OL10-700-101, “Working with Information Brokers.” This tuto¬ 
rial was revised by Helen Burwell, one of the leading information 
brokers in the country and a top authority on the subject.

Database Potpourri 


News from BRS Information 
Technologies 

BRS has added an important new 
pharmaceutical database, the 
IDIS Drug File. Produced by 
Iowa Drug Information Service, 
IDIS is a bibliographic database 
with detailed indexing of articles 
on human drug therapy, from 
over 160 English-language medi¬ 
cal and pharmaceutical journals. 
Coverage includes information on 
study design, treatment efficacy, 
study population, dosage, admin¬ 
istration technique, pharmacoki¬ 
netics, pharmaceutics, 
incompatibilities, drug interac¬ 
tions, toxicology, and side effects. 

It costs $52 per hour to search 
this database on the BRS Search 
Service. BRS Colleague searchers 
pay $52 prime time, and $39 
non-prime time. 

For further information about 
IDIS, contact BRS Customer Ser¬ 
vices, or the database producer at 
Iowa Drug Information Service, 
Oakdale Hall, Oakdale, IA 52319. 
Telephone (319) 335-4800. 

MEDLINE, produced by the 
National Library of Medicine, 
has been enhanced and reloaded 
for 1990. The database now re¬ 
flects the changes in and addi¬ 
tions to the MeSH vocabulary; 
therefore, it is important to use 
the current volumes of the Medi¬ 


cal Subject Headings Annotated 
Alphabetic List and the MeSH 
Tree Structures to ensure accurate 
search results. The expansion in¬ 
cludes: 

• 413 new descriptors (391 ma¬ 
jor, 22 minor) 

• 91 descriptors replaced with 
more up-to-date terminology 

• 8 descriptors deleted 

• 63 minor descriptors ele¬ 
vated to majors 

• 3 non-MeSH descriptors 
changed to Index Medicus de¬ 
scriptors 

• 5 geographic subheadings 
added for cataloging 

The MEDLINE database is 
available in three separate files. 
MEDLINE and Backfiles are 
available at $25 per hour; MED¬ 
LINE (merged) is available at $27 
per hour; and MEDLINE Refer¬ 
ences on AIDS is available at $25 
per hour.

New Products from 
GE Information Services 
(GEIS) 

GEIS has announced Quik- 
News Express, a personalized 
electronic news clipping service 


integrated with its QUIK-COMM 
System electronic messaging ser¬ 
vice. This new service allows sub¬ 
scribers to create an interest 
profile based on search keywords 
and standing story selections. 
“Standing stories” are news items 
on a particular topic that are re¬ 
ceived regularly, such as leading 
stock market indicators. GEIS 
says time savings, convenience, 
competitive advantage, and infor¬ 
mation access are the key benefits 
to QuickNews Express subscrib¬ 
ers. 

GE Information Services also 
announced the QUIK-COMM 
X. 400 Access Service, which con¬ 
nects electronic mail services 
from GE Information Services 
and Western Union. Public and 
private E-Mail users from both 
sides of the network can now 
communicate with each other, 
regardless of the system involved. 
Not only does GEIS offer an in¬ 
terconnection to the QUIK- 
COMM X.400 Access Service, it 
also offers a range of interconnec¬ 
tions to various other private 
mail systems.

CD-ROM Titles 


Microsoft’s 1989-1990 CD-ROM Yearbook (pub¬ 
lished by Microsoft Press, Redmond, WA) lists 326 
commercially published titles. These include Bowk- 
er’s Books in Print, Merriam Webster’s Ninth New 
Collegiate Dictionary, the Original Oxford English 
Dictionary, the Physician’s Desk Reference, and the 
Reader’s Guide to Periodical Literature. 

Several business and computer-related services 
are also available on CD-ROM. These include Com¬ 
puter Library, which provides full text of 15 trade 
publications and abstracts of more than 120 others; 
MacGuide USA, which identifies hardware and soft¬ 
ware for Apple’s Macintosh; Standard & Poor’s Cor¬ 


porations, which provides financial data on nearly 
50,000 public and privately owned companies; and 
the Business Software Directory, which covers more 
than 10,000 software programs. 

In addition to commercial titles, many compa¬ 
nies and government agencies publish their own 
CD-ROMs for internal use. 

Although IBM and IBM-compatible microcom¬ 
puters remain the major CD-ROM platform, the 
number of titles available for the Apple Macintosh 
and for workstations has increased. 


CD-ROM’s 

Arrival 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Trends 

InfoTech’s 1990 Optical Pub¬ 
lishing Industry Assessment re¬ 
ported that CD-ROM titles in 
print increased an astonishing 
107 percent in 1989. (For further 
information on CD-ROM titles, 
see the related sidebar on Page 4 
of this newsletter.) Last year, 
there were 340,000 CD-ROM read- 
ers/players worldwide. 

For a long time, CD-ROM 
growth was hampered by the cost 
of the drives needed to “play” 
the disks. Now, that final barrier 
is eroding—prices are falling. 

Granted, Datapro’s latest sur¬ 
vey of CD-ROM drive manufac¬ 
turers failed to show a decrease in 
the overall range of prices for 
CD-ROM drives. Those vendors 
with the highest (Online) and 
lowest (Denon) priced drive 
failed to lower the prices of those 
particular drives (the range still 
stands at $450 to $3,695). 


Many vendors in between, 
however, did lower their prices. 
Overall, Datapro found only a 4 
percent price decrease in CD- 
ROM drives, but a 22 percent av¬ 
erage decrease from those 
vendors who did decrease their 
drive prices. The largest decrease 
was Sony’s CDU-510, down 42.5 
percent, from $895 to $515. 

The Future 

CD-ROM and multimedia 
have come a long way since the 
mid-1980s. In 1986, CD-ROM 
developers celebrated a new me¬ 
dium that allowed the organiza¬ 
tion, access, and management of 
large amounts of graphic, audio, 
and textual information on read¬ 
only compact disks. One year 
later, Intel announced interactive 
DVI technology for television and 
movies, combining full-motion 
video with text and graphics on 
CD-ROM. 

Today, CD-ROM drive prices 
are declining and performance is 
increasing. CD-ROM titles have 
more than doubled, and alliances 
between leading vendors are pro¬ 
ducing brilliant, new applications. 
Erasable media applications are 


developing in tandem, rather 
than in competition with, CD- 
ROM, ensuring CD-ROM’s con¬ 
tinued viability as a publishing 
medium. As a result of 30-frame- 
per-second desktop compression. 
DVI’s image resolution is im¬ 
proving to the quality of Digital 
Television, and development 
tools are more powerful and eas¬ 
ier to use. 

What does the future hold? 
Multimedia on CD-ROM is defi¬ 
nitely moving toward the main¬ 
stream. For the short term, 
hardware prices will continue to 
drop by 10 to 30 percent, and 
compatibility will emerge as stan¬ 
dards are accepted. 

Before long, CD-ROM and 
multimedia applications will be¬ 
come standard equipment in the 
office, school, and home. To on¬ 
line searchers, the promise of the 
end of the ticking meter, at least 
for some of their information 
sleuthing, is exciting.

New York in Spring: Time for the-annual rite of the National 
Online Meeting. Now entering its second decade, National On¬ 
line is the industry’s premier showcase for the latest in online 
technology. See this month’s On-line Briefings newsletter for 
our assessment of this year’s show. 

This month’s issue offers an interesting blend of reports, 
guaranteed to offer something of interest to any reader. If you, or 
someone you do research for is interested in doing business in 
Europe, you will want to see our revised report, An Overview of 
European Databases (Report OL70-050-101). It describes many 
top European databases and gives contact information for many 
European hosts. 

Another report (Report OL70-400-101), An Overview of 
Value-Added Networks, describes the history behind, and the 
services now offered BT Tymnet, CompuServe Network Ser¬ 
vices, Sprintnet, and other VANs. For example, many VAN pro¬ 
viders now offer electronic mail and electronic data interchange 
(EDI) services. 

Finally, if you are in the market for a new microcomputer, 
or just want to learn more about where the technology now 
stands, you will want to see our two revised reports: Microcom¬ 
puters: Market Overview (Report OL70-700-201), and Micro¬ 
computers: Technology Overview (OL70-700-101).

On-line Briefings Newsletter 

Using On-line Databases for Market Only 1 or 2 percent of the nation’s 70 million Knowledge Work- 
Research q-,, r ,„ nM ers make use of on-line services. Yet, there are a lot of people 

Washington Watch: Electronic Data- Wh'dcxMWTise online services but don’t, for one reason or an- 

bases and the Washington infor- other. Lately, some vendors, both old and new, have introduced 
mation Machine i ^information services designed to bring online information di¬ 

rectly to the people who use it, rather than expecting users to re¬ 
trieve it themselves. Some vendors deliver information by fax, 
--others through electronic mail services. Several of these services 
are profiled in this month’s On-line Briefings newsletter. 

This issue also includes two updated tutorial reports. Our 
tutorials, which you will find behind the OLIO tab in Volume 1, 
are designed to bring end users and other new searchers up to 
speed on searching on-line databases. Even experienced searchers 
may find some useful pointers. The first report, “Using On-line 
Databases for Market Research” (Report OL10-450-101), dis¬ 
cusses such key areas as: 

• The value of using on-line databases for market research 

• On-line financial resources 

• On-line news resources 

• The CD-ROM option 

Market researchers, strategic and competitive analysts, in¬ 
formation professionals, and managers of all types will find this 
report useful. 

Our second tutorial, “Washington Watch: Electronic Data¬ 
bases and the Washington Information Machine” (Report OL10- 
500-101), discusses the nation’s largest publisher—the Federal 
government—and how electronic databases can help you sift 
through this information treasure trove. Perhaps no other source 
offers such a diversity of information, from publications such as 
Weed Control in Lawns and Other Turf, to the Congressional 
Record. Anv “information consumer” will find this tutorial use¬ 
ful.

News That Fits 
Like a Suit 


Database Potpourri.3 

You know it’s part of your job to keep up with industry news. 

In fact, if important news escapes you, your very job can be 
threatened. Tracking news is even more important for infor¬ 
mation professionals, who must remain current for others as 
well as themselves. 

Yet, staying up to date gets more difficult all the time, es¬ 
pecially in the computer industry. There is not only an abun¬ 
dance of news but a multitude of ways to get it—CD-ROMs, 
fax machines, on-line databases, and the familiar printed page. 
You may never feel caught up. 

Not only that, some of the best tools, such as on-line data¬ 
bases, go unused because of the learning curve. By one estimate, 
fewer than 1 percent of the nation’s 70 million “Knowledge 
Workers” use on-line databases. Even if that estimate is a little 
low, it’s probably not far off the mark. 

Fortunately, a new class of products has emerged, blending 
computerized information retrieval with electronic information 
delivery to make staying informed easier than ever. These prod¬ 
ucts, with such catchy names as NewsAgent and INFOAgent, 
promise to cut down on information age overload by acting as 
smart filters, prescreening information before it even reaches 
you. Consequently, they offer a guarantee, of sorts, that the in¬ 
formation will interest you. Companies ranging from well- 
known giants such as Dow Jones, to start-ups such as Individual 
Inc., of Cambridge, MA, are involved.

Newsletter 


I recently sampled Individual 
Inc.’s First!, one of the custom¬ 
ized newsletter services described 
in the lead article. 

To get started, I completed the 
same steps any subscriber would. 

I filled out the company’s seven- 
page “First! Profile Generation 
Form,” where I specified compa¬ 
nies, markets, and products I 
wanted to track. I had the choice 
of fax or MCI Mail delivery. I 
chose MCI Mail delivery since 
that meant the information would 
arrive in electronic form right at 
my desktop. (By the way, if I had 
a PC fax card I could have the 
same thing—desktop conve¬ 
nience, with the information in 
electronic form.) 

Within a few days, my custom¬ 
ized newsletters began arriving. 
Each morning I logged on to MCI 
Mail to find my own edition of 
First! On average, each issue fea¬ 
tured three stories. It even in¬ 
cluded a table of contents so I 
could scan the already finely fil¬ 
tered publication (scan the scan)! 

About 60 percent of the stories 
I received were relevant to my 
interests. I’m sure this relevancy 
would improve, by the way, be¬ 


cause Individual goes to the trou¬ 
ble of regularly soliciting 
feedback about the value of the 
information it delivers to you. As 
a subscriber, I received a Rele¬ 
vancy feedback questionnaire (a 
report card of sorts) where I rated 
each story Individual provided as 
Not relevant, Relevant, or ? (Un¬ 
sure). 

The process continues every 
week for four weeks, then once a 
month thereafter. I’m certain that 
with one or two more iterations 
my newsletter could hit the 70 
percent relevancy level or even 
greater. Compared to your aver¬ 
age trade publication or newspa¬ 
per, that’s a remarkable rate. 

For now, Individual Inc. has 
the same drawback that most 
electronic delivery media do. It’s 
too expensive for many people 
(although Individual takes a lot of 
the sting out of the price by offer¬ 
ing group discounts). But given 
the convenience and the value of 
the information, I’m certain this 
will be the way many of us re¬ 
ceive information in the near fu¬ 
ture.

Database Potpourri 


Dow Jones —Dow Jones recently 
demonstrated its new DowVision 
information service. DowVision 
is an electronic information ser¬ 
vice that delivers customized in¬ 
formation straight to users’ 
desktops (see lead article). The 
company also continues to an¬ 
nounce new “Alliance 
Developers”—companies that 
take DowVision news and cus¬ 
tomize it to meet users’ needs. 

In other news, the company’s 
Dow Jones Information Services 
group activated a remote-host 
database computer at Kyodo 
News Service in Tokyo. The com¬ 
puter will support Dow Jones 
News/Retrieval customers, mak¬ 
ing it possible for them to make a 
local call to access Dow Jones 
databases. Previously, their only 
option was to incur the high costs 
associated with dialing through 
packet-switching networks back 
to the U.S. 

For further details, contact 
Dow Jones & Company, P.O. 

Box 300, Princeton, NJ 08543. 
Telephone (609) 520-4000. 

US Sprint —Radio Free Eu¬ 
rope, the international broad¬ 
caster based in Munich, will 
distribute its newsletter, The Ra¬ 
dio Free Europe/Radio Liberty 


Daily Report, via SprintFAX, US 
Sprint’s automated fax service. 

For more information, contact 
United Telecom, P.O. Box 11315, 
Kansas City, MO 64112. Tele¬ 
phone (913) 676-3000. 

Telebase —The parent of the 
popular EasyNet gateway, which 
provides access to more than 850 
databases from more than a 
dozen different vendors, has en¬ 
hanced its SmartSCAN feature. 
SmartSCAN lets users run a 
search across several databases at 
once to see which databases 
would yield the most hits. The 
enhancement permits faster 
searching of more SmartSCAN 
databases.

Systems, Inc., 763 W. Lancaster 
Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010. 
Telephone (215) 526-2800. 

National Technical Information 
Service (NTIS) —The National 
Technical Information Service 
announced the availability of 
three directories designed to pro¬ 
vide easy access to Japanese on¬ 
line databases, technical reports, 
and technical resources. 

Directory of Japanese Techni¬ 
cal Resources in the United 
States—1990 (Fourth Edition)— 
Lists commercial services, gov¬ 


ernment agencies, and libraries 
that specialize in Japanese infor¬ 
mation ($39). 

Directory of Japanese 
Databases —Full descriptions of 
43 Japanese databases accessible 
from within the United States 
($35). 

Directory of Japanese Techni¬ 
cal Reports— Summarizes 1,500

Mead Data Central —Mead 
Data Central (MDC) and the 
American Banker’s Association 
(ABA) announced they have 
agreed to unveil a special service 
for bankers interested in gaining 
on-line access to MDC’s NEXIS

Customized News 

(Continued from Page 1) 

These services typically apply ar¬ 
tificial intelligence to information 
gathering. Individual Inc.’s First! 
service, for example, offers what 
it says is the “first software' able 
to evaluate the relevance of infor¬ 
mation presented to it.” The soft¬ 
ware scans through 35,000 
computer-related wire stories per 
month, looking for articles that 
match the subscriber’s interest 
profile. (Sources include PR 
Newswire, Business Wire, UPI, 
Kyodo, and Reuters.) The more 
matches, the higher the presumed 
relevance. Not only that, the soft¬ 
ware is smart enough to know 
that words appearing in titles or 
lead paragraphs are likely more 
important than those buried deep 
within a story. (In fact, the soft¬ 
ware is even called SMART, for 
System for Manipulation and Re¬ 
trieval of Text.) 


Individual’s system takes 
your keywords and user profile to 
analyze articles. It then measures 
their relevance to you. So it does 
not depend solely on your key¬ 
words in doing a search. It takes 
into account, for example, that 
articles about working at home 
with computers may interest 
someone who’s tracking telecom¬ 
muting, even though the word 
telecommuting does not appear 
anywhere in the article. This ap¬ 
proach is typical of systems using 
artificial intelligence. 

These services typically only 
scan newswires such as PR News- 
wire or Business Wire. Increas¬ 
ingly, however, they will scan 
other sources, including trade 
journals, to greatly boost their 
value. Information arrives via 
fax, E-Mail, or directly to your 
in-house LAN (which perhaps is 
the most convenient delivery op¬ 
tion of all). In fact, desktop deliv¬ 
ery is the strongest selling point 


of DowVision, a new service 
from Dow Jones & Company. 
DowVision provides news from 
the Dow Jones News Service, the 
PR and Business News wires, 
Professional Investor Report, 
Capital Markets Report, Dow 
Jones International News Service, 
and Federal Filings. 

Services cost about $2,000 to 
$10,000 per year. Individual, for 
example, charges $1,995 per year 
for a Basic Service (up to 500 sto¬ 
ries) to $6,750 for its Compre¬ 
hensive Service (up to 2,000 
stories). The fixed pricing allows 
for easier budgeting than on-line 
services do. 

It’s very tempting to let these 
services handle your research 
needs. If not for the steep price, 
few people could resist giving 
them a try. (See the Editorial 
View on Page 2 for our impres¬ 
sions of Individual’s First! ser¬ 
vice.)

On-line Briefings Newsletter 
Accessing Second-Tier 
Information Utilities 
Communicating by Macintosh 



Highlights 


Two new tutorial reports are spotlighted this month. “Communi¬ 
cating by Macintosh” provides useful information for all Mac¬ 
intosh owners and anyone else interested in on-line 
communications. Hundreds of thousands of Macintosh comput¬ 
ers are sold every year. Also, more and more good telecommuni¬ 
cations packages are becoming available for them, making this 
tutorial especially important. The report describes several of the 
leading communications software programs for the Macintosh. 
Aside from the technical data, however, the report covers more 
theoretical issues. For example, what are the benefits of using a 
Macintosh for telecommunications? Taking a step back from 
even that, what are the benefits of using a Macintosh computer 
for anything fas compared to using an MS-DOS-based com¬ 
puter)? For the details, see report OL10-250-101. 

On-line searchers are well aware of the services that DIA¬ 
LOG, BRS, Dow Jones News/Retrieval, and the other well- 
known companies in the field offer. Just beneath this tier of 
services, however, are several important but less well-know ser¬ 
vices. “Accessing Second-Tier Information Utilities” (Report 
OL10-800-101) covers them, providing details on The WELL, 
Exec-PC, the BYTE Information Exchange (BIX), and PC Mag- 
Net. These services offer software and information not available 
from the larger on-line services. 

Both new reports, by the way, reprint material that origi¬ 
nally appeared in Dvorak’s Guide to PC Telecommunications, a 
best-selling book from Osborne/McGraw-Hill.

Telecommuting: 
Questions and Answers 


Computers: 

Sharing the Wealth.3 The federal government will soon begin a large demonstration 

program to assess telecommuting : working for an employer from 
home. Thousands of federal employees spanning many agencies 
will take part. Many on-line and high-tech companies (e.g., In¬ 
formation Access Company, Apple Computer) are already sold 
on telecommuting, having used it for some time with good re¬ 
sults. Still, myths and questions about telecommuting abound. 
What exactly is it? Who does it? How can you “take your job 
home?” 

The following discussion should help clarify many of these 
points. To gather this material, Datapro spoke with several au¬ 
thorities in the field. 

Q: What is “Telecommuting”? 

A: Telecommuting refers to using telecommunications tech¬ 
nology to replace commuting. That is, working away from the 
office, from a remote site, with the help of a telephone, or com¬ 
puter and modem to get your job done and stay in touch with 
your boss and coworkers. 

Q: How many people telecommute? 

A: Estimates vary widely from 100,000 to 5 million. Not 
everyone defines telecommuting the same way, which accounts 
for some of the variation among estimates. Also, much telecom¬ 
muting goes unreported. Many telecommuters telecommute in¬ 
formally. They have worked out private arrangements with their 
supervisors to work from home one or more days a week. This 
“guerilla” telecommuting is widespread, but obviously it’s diffi¬ 
cult to pin down just how widespread!

Computer 
Commuting 
to School 


Once you enter the work world, 
continuing your formal education 
is inconvenient to say the least. It 
can be like working two jobs, 
which means that neither one gets 
the attention it should. Not only 
that, you have to travel to a cam¬ 
pus (not always conveniently lo¬ 
cated) at the end of the workday, 
when few of us are at our best. 

Those of us familiar with tele¬ 
communications have another 
option—we can “attend” class 
via modem whenever it is conve¬ 
nient. Sound too good to be true? 
Connected Education, in conjunc¬ 
tion with New York City’s New 
School for Social Research, has 
offered courses via modem for 
years. In fact, in the past five 
years Connected Education has 
offered more than 150 graduate 
and undergraduate courses via 
computer conferencing to more 
than 750 students across 28 
states, and internationally from 
many parts of the world including 
Elolland, England, France, Ice¬ 
land, Singapore, and Canada. 

Courses cover trends in tele¬ 
communications, the effects of 


modern technology on our lives, 
and practical concerns such as 
desktop publishing and technical 
writing. You can even earn a de¬ 
gree this way. Qualified students 
can pursue an MA in Technology 
and Society entirely via Connect 
Ed on-line courses. 

Finally, Connected Ed also 
sells diskette-based books includ¬ 
ing novels, short stories, poetry, 
commentary, scholarly essays, 
and scholarly books. It also spon¬ 
sors on-line seminars, which you 
attend via computer and modem. 
A recent seminar covered Elec¬ 
tronic Data Interchange and was 
hosted by Benjamin Wright, au¬ 
thor of EDI and American Law. 
Registrants are allowed to access 
the course whenever they want 
over the course of a month.

Database Potpourri 


SCAN C2C has announced that 
its Japan Technology database 
will be available on DIALOG In¬ 
formation Services in February 
1991. Japan Technology is also 
offered on ORBIT Search Ser¬ 
vice. 

The database provides English- 
language coverage of such Japa¬ 
nese industries as biosciences, 
chemistry, computers, electronics, 
energy, manufacturing, and mate¬ 
rials. It contains over 150,000 
records from 1985 to the present; 
an additional 3,000 to 4,000 
records are added each month. 
According to Tom Satoh, presi¬ 
dent of SCAN C2C, “The data¬ 
base is an ideal way for technical, 
market, and academic researchers 
to stay abreast of the latest devel¬ 
opments in Japan.” 

For further information, con¬ 
tact SCAN C2C, 500 E Street, 
Suite 800, Washington, DC 
20024. Telephone (202) 863- 
3850. 

Information Access Co. was 
very active in October. First, the 
company announced that it 
would add two full-text databases 
to Data-Star, the largest on-line 
information service in Europe. 
The Trade & Industry Database 
provides local, regional, and in¬ 
ternational coverage of industry 
and company news. Magazine 


Database covers American cur¬ 
rent events, politics, trends, and 
popular culture. 

“We are pleased to introduce 
two of our most popular data¬ 
bases to Data-Star customers,” 
said Morris Goldstein, president 
of Information Access Co. “Trade 
& Industry Database represents a 
significant addition to Data-Star, 
especially in today’s competitive 
trade and investment environ¬ 
ment and trend toward a more 
independent global economy.” 
Goldstein added that Magazine 
Database is the first such data¬ 
base to provide full-text searching 
of general-interest articles profil¬ 
ing American political views, cul¬ 
tural trends, and contemporary 
life-styles. “It is also one of the 
few databases with crossover ap¬ 
peal among business, govern¬ 
ment, and academic users who 
monitor and analyze public taste 
and opinion.” 

Trade & Industry Database 
contains citations to nearly 4 mil¬ 
lion records gathered from over 
1,100 trade journals and industry 
publications. Magazine Database 
contains citations to nearly 3 mil¬ 
lion records gathered from over 
435 U.S. magazines. Both data¬ 
bases are updated weekly. As a 
special introductory offer, Data- 
Star customers will receive 30 


minutes of free search time on 
the two databases in mid-January 
1991. 

Information Access has an¬ 
nounced the addition of the Ex¬ 
panded Academic Index to its 
InfoTrac library of CD-ROM da¬ 
tabases. The new InfoTrac CD- 
ROM database is a significantly 
expanded version of the Aca¬ 
demic Index. Expanded Aca¬ 
demic Index contains more than 
960 scholarly journals, nearly 
three times the number of publi¬ 
cations covered in the Academic 
Index. In addition to covering 
major titles in the academic disci¬ 
plines, it also contains general 
interest publications as well as 
The New York Times. InfoTrac is 
designed for research in the hu¬ 
manities, social sciences, and gen¬ 
eral sciences; the new database 
will be available in early 1991. 

Information Access has ex¬ 
panded the distribution channels 
for its tape and CD-ROM data¬ 
bases with a new database licens¬ 
ing program and agreements with 
seven library automation organi¬ 
zations. The new plan, called the 
InfoTrac 2000 Database Licens¬ 
ing Program, includes 10 data¬ 
bases: General Periodicals Index, 
Magazine Index Plus, Expanded 
Academic Index, Academic In¬ 
dex, Business Index, Computer

Thomson & Thomson has en¬ 
hanced its TRADEMARKSCAN- 
Federal and State databases. The 
enhancements are designed to 
help users conduct more compre¬ 
hensive searches for trademark 
designs and logos; to locate infor¬ 
mation on specific federal or state 
trademarks; and to gather trade¬ 


mark ownership data more easily 
and completely. The TRADE- 
MARKSCAN databases are avail¬ 
able on DIALOG Information 
Services. 

The Design Code Search Capa¬ 
bility in the 

TRADEMARKSCAN-Federal 
database provides for more thor¬ 
ough and precise searches for spe¬ 
cific design elements associated 
with trademark registrations and 
applications filed with the U.S. 
Patent and Trademark Office. 
This feature can be used to run a 
preliminary screening search for 
designs that might conflict with a 
proposed logo or to seek out im¬ 
ages to support litigation. 

“Since its launch in 1983, the 
TRADEMARKSCAN line has 
been meeting and evolving 
around the trademark research 
requirements of thousands of le¬ 
gal and business professionals 
worldwide,” said Anthea Gotto, 
Thomson & Thomson’s manager 
of online marketing. Gotto indi¬ 
cated the enhancements are a re¬ 
sult of user feedback.

In the Industry 


Computers: 

Sharing the Wealth 


It’s a striking advertisement. 
“What good is a computer if it 
can’t feed a hungry child?” The 
question, set in 40-point white 
type on a black background, leaps 
out from the page of a journal 
devoted to esoteric programming 
techniques or the latest in expert 
system software. Perhaps the 
reader—among many other com¬ 
puter professionals—first became 
interested in computers from en¬ 
visioning how they would make 
things better—for everyone— 
soon. 

A few computer professionals 
believe that soon is now, but for 
computers to help people, first 
people have to help people. The 
CompuMentor Project began 
working on this very task in late 
1986. That’s when founder 
Daniel Ben-Horin began trying to 
match computer professionals 
with nonprofit organizations in 
the San Francisco Bay area. The 
groups looking for computer wiz¬ 
ards covered the entire spectrum 
of social services from agencies 
working with the homeless, 
abused children, and the elderly, 
to councils on the arts and educa¬ 
tion for the needy, and ecological 
watchdog groups. Their needs 
were simple, spanning help select¬ 
ing the correct computer and ac¬ 
companying software for their 
tasks, to training on computers 


and applications they had already 
acquired. They also needed word 
processors, accounting packages, 
database management systems, 
and spreadsheets. Many of them 
wanted to access on-line data¬ 
bases and exchange electronic 
mail with similar groups in the 
country. All needed ongoing assis¬ 
tance to manage the dozens of 
questions and problems that arise 
in the daily use of computer 
hardware and software. 

Since the Bay area includes 
Silicon Valley, Ben-Horin had 
many skilled people to seek out. 
Initial contacts with mentor vol¬ 
unteers were made on the WELL, 
a popular Bay Area electronic 
bulletin board system originally 
begun by the group responsible 
for the Whole Earth Catalog. 
While this approach yielded 
enough people to get things 
started, the need for skilled men¬ 
tors soon outstripped the WELL’s 
capability to provide them. At 
about the same time, a column 
called “Inside Silicon Valley” by 
Denise Caruso in the San Fran¬ 
cisco Herald-Examiner described 
the CompuMentor project and 
that set the phones ringing. More 
articles in the press and contacts 
with user groups spurred volun¬ 
teers. Grants from such industry 
giants as Apple Computer and 
Pacific Telesis provided the capi- 


9/90 

tal necessary to keep the project 3 
staffed full time and handle the 
flood of both volunteers and 
groups seeking mentors. 

Today CompuMentor has 
nearly 300 mentors helping ap¬ 
proximately 200 nonprofit groups 
in and around San Francisco. 

Ben-Horin and his group hope to 
help form new CompuMentor 
groups throughout the country. A 
58-page booklet, Compu- 
Mentoring—People Helping Com¬ 
puters Help People, provides 
much advice for those who wish 
to start their own CompuMentor 
group. Issues such as where and 
how to obtain funding, and how 
to get the word out to both poten¬ 
tial mentor volunteers and groups 
that need mentors, are covered in 
depth. 

Ben-Horin and his associates 
believe the story of CompuMen¬ 
tor has only begun. They are con¬ 
fident that soon CompuMentor 
groups will appear in most Amer¬ 
ican cities. To further this end, 
they’re offering the CompuMen- 
toring booklet and other materi¬ 
als and assistance free to anyone 
interested in starting a mentor 
group. Contact CompuMentor at 
(415) 255-6040 or write to 385 
8 th Street, 2nd Floor, San Fran¬ 
cisco, CA 94103.

Working from Home 


Telecommuting 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Q: What jobs are suitable for tele¬ 
commuting? 

A: Many telecommuters are 
knowledge workers—they create 
or manipulate information. Much 
of what they do can be done any¬ 
where, as long as there is a tele¬ 
phone; desk; chair; and, if 
9/90 needed, a computer handy. 

—“T Q: Which companies have tele¬ 
commuters? 

A: A handful of companies, 
among them J.C. Penney, Blue 
Cross/Blue Shield of South Caro¬ 
lina, Pacific Bell, and The Travel¬ 
ers Companies, have formal 
telecommuting programs. These 
programs were often set up by 
consultants, are condoned by top 
management, and have been the 
focus of many news stories. But, 
as mentioned, most telecommut¬ 
ing is done informally. Some of 
the many companies with infor¬ 
mal telecommuting are AT&T, 
Apple Computer, DuPont, IBM, 
Weyerhauser, John Hancock, and 
Sears. 

Q: What are telecommuting’s 
advantages? 


A: That’s easy. Here are just a 
few: 

• More control. Telecommut¬ 
ers can work when they are at 
their best, run errands when it’s 
convenient, schedule things to 
meet their needs. 

• Money savings. Telecommut¬ 
ers save money on gas, tolls, 
clothes (no more dress-for-success 
routine), and restaurant lunches. 

• Less stress. Telecommuters 
eliminate many sources of stress, 
including the stress that comes 
from commuting and working 
closely with people who you 
might otherwise have little to do 
with. 

• Greater productivity. On the 
average, telecommuters are 20 
percent more productive than 
their office-based counterparts. 

Q: What are telecommuting’s 
drawbacks? 

A: Unfortunately, that’s also 
easy to answer. 

• Isolation. Someone who 
works from home may not see 
anyone else the entire day, except 
for maybe the letter carrier or 
another delivery person. 


• Constant temptation. For 
some, the constant presence of 
the refrigerator or liquor cabinet 
is too much to bear. 

• Need for self-discipline. Be¬ 
cause there are no supervisors or 
coworkers around, telecommuters 
must sometimes push themselves 
to keep working. 

• Being bumped off the fast 
track. If you want to zip up the 
corporate ladder, you will have to 
work hard to ensure that telecom¬ 
muting does not hold you back. 

In other words, you must make 
sure you still get the attention 
and notice you deserve. 

For some, perhaps 20 percent 
of telecommuters, these problems 
send them back to the office. But 
given the choice, most telecom¬ 
muters would never go back! 

Q: OK. I’m sold! How do I be¬ 
come a telecommuter? 

A: Basically, it’s a matter of 
making your pitch to your current 
employer and persuading him/her 
to let you give it a try. The key is 
to position it as something that 
will benefit the employer.

CD-ROM Info Delivered 
on SilverPlatter 


This month’s issue includes the latest version of our report on 
optical storage products, technology, and the market. Therefore, 
in this issue of On-line Briefings, we decided to take a look at 
what’s happening with one of the leading providers of informa¬ 
tion on CD-ROM, SilverPlatter Information, Inc. (Newton 
Lower Falls, MA). 

October was a busy month for SilverPlatter. On October 3, 
the company made three announcements. First, it announced it 
would publish COM LINE, from COMLINE International (To¬ 
kyo, Japan), on CD-ROM; delivery is scheduled for early 1991. 
COMLINE contains English-language summaries of commer¬ 
cially important Japanese product and technology news from 
1986 to the present. The annual subscription price for COM¬

duced by The Royal Tropical In¬ 
stitute (KIT) of The Netherlands. 

On October 5, SilverPlatter 
announced the delivery of SED- 
BASE on CD-ROM in January 
1991. Developed by Elsevier Sci¬ 
ence Publishers, SEDBASE con¬ 
tains information on clinically 
relevant side effects and interac¬ 
tions of all drugs currently in use. 
An annual subscription costs 
$995 and is updated semiannu¬ 
ally. 

Twelve days later, the com¬ 
pany said it was shipping the 
CLAIMS/ Patent database on 
CD-ROM. Developed by IFI/ 
Plenum Data Corp., CLAIMS/ 
Patent covers all patents issued 
by the U.S. patent office since 
1950. SilverPlatter’s CD-ROM 
costs $1,895 for an annual sub¬ 
scription with bimonthly updates. 

On October 25, SilverPlatter 
announced the January 1991 re¬ 
lease of Biological Abstracts/RRM 
(BA/RRM) on compact disk. This 


database provides indexed and 
classified bibliographic entries for 
research reports, reviews, and 
books in biology and medicine. It 
joins Biological Abstracts (BA) in 
SilverPlatter’s collection of health 
and science databases. BA/RRM 
will be on two disks—one will 
include 1989-90, and the other 
will include 1991 and 1992—and 
will be updated quarterly. A sub¬ 
scription to the BA/RRM on CD 
runs $7,805 and is updated quar¬ 
terly; however, there are signifi¬ 
cant discounts offered to 
subscribers of the print version 
offered by BIOSIS, producer of 
the database. 

SilverPlatter was one of the 
first providers of information on 
CD-ROM and offers more than 
50 titles on compact disk. Many 
of the company’s CD-ROMs can 
be searched using a PC or Mac¬ 
intosh, and all can be accessed 
from SilverPlatter’s MultiPIatter 
CD-ROM network. SilverPlatter’s 
retrieval software is similar 
among all of its CD-ROM data¬ 
bases, so software functions and 
search techniques need not be 
completely relearned when mov¬ 
ing from one database to another.

For Immediate Release 

IS THE “PAPERLESS OFFICE” FINALLY HERE? 

A Growing Number of Vendors, Including IBM, GE, McDonnell Douglas, Commits to 
EDI, Says Datapro 

NEW YORK, N.Y., July 27, 1988—IBM, GE and McDonnell Douglas are among the growing 
number of companies that have embraced EDI to save time and money, according to the 
July issue of Datapro Reports on Retail Automation. 

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is to common business documents what EFT (Electronic 
Funds Transfer) is to financial transactions: the elimination of the paper document. In an 
EDI environment electronic messages substitute for conventional business documents 
among parties who agree to engage in this type of transactions by becoming “trading part¬ 
ners.” This partnership enables computers to communicate through a series of standard¬ 
ized data formats such as Invoice, Request for Quotation, Quotation, Credit Memo, 
Purchase Order, Bill of Lading and Remittance Advice. 

By replacing preparation and physical transportation of paper documents with electronic 
messages, EDI can provide trading partners with reduced costs and increased communica¬ 
tion speed. Companies processing a large number of transactions such as Fortune 1000 cor¬ 
porations, government offices, manufacturers, retailers and grocery chains have 
responded positively to EDI, also aided by the stabilization of standards for message for¬ 
mats at several levels including industry-specific and industry-wide. 

Commercially available EDI products and services by 11 vendors are listed and evaluated 
by the Datapro report. Individual products’ features and EDI-related issues such as adher¬ 
ence to standards and security control procedures are also analyzed. 

The report is published in Datapro Reports on Retail Automation, Datapro’s subscription 
service for companies involved in retailing, and is available separately as a Feature Report 
for $35. For more information contact Datapro at 1805 Underwood Boulevard, Delran, New 
Jersey 08075, (609) 764-0100, ext. 2203.

User's Guide—How to Get the Most 
from Your Subscription

User's Guide 


OUR AIM IS TO HELP 

If you already subscribe to this publication, or even if you 
are just reviewing it for possible purchase, you are probably 
acquainted with on-line databases and their potential. You 
know that on-line databases, more than anything before 
them, have democratized information, making the kind of 
information previously available only from the largest 
libraries available to anyone with a microcomputer or 
communicating terminal. With more than 3,500 databases 
to choose from and more than 500 database providers 
offering access to these databases, however, it’s difficult to 
know just where to turn for the information you need. It’s 
safe to assume that the information you need is probably 
available on-line, but where? What’s more, several data¬ 
bases may cover the same terrain. How do you choose 
among them? 


Remote computing services present a similar quandary. 
There are hundreds of remote computing services from 
which to choose. Pinpointing the best one for your applica¬ 
tion can be mind boggling. Perhaps you’ve even heard that 
some companies now use microcomputers for many appli¬ 
cations formerly done on a time-sharing basis. Therefore, 
do you even need to contract with a time-sharing service? 

Relax. This publication is your road map, your personal 
guide, to the on-line services now available. It’s designed to 
make your on-line database research as productive as 
possible and to help you to choose a remote computing 
service that best fulfills your computing needs. However, 
just as the Datapro Directory of On-line Services will make 
your on-line explorations easier, this User’s Guide will 
explain how you can derive the most from your subscrip¬ 
tion to this information service. The time you spend read¬ 
ing this User’s Guide, then, is time well spent. When you 
are finished, you’ll be able to reap the maximum benefit 
from this information service. 


HOW THE SERVICE IS ORGANIZED 

A Loose-Leaf Information Service 

A subscription to the Datapro Directory of On-line Services 
consists of two volumes of regularly updated materials. The 
loose-leaf format accommodates the dynamic nature of our 
publication. Each month you’ll receive a fresh issue, which 
you’ll want to file as soon as possible. It will include new 
reports, updates to existing reports, an updated Table of 
Contents, current indices, and our monthly newsletter. The 
loose-leaf format allows easy assimilation of this new infor¬ 
mation. It also makes removing previously filed materials 
simple. You can retrieve the exact information you need, 
when you need it. You can then take it to your work area, 
without having to take the entire volume of information 
along. 


This User's Guide describes the Datapro Directory 
of On-line Services. It explains the organization of 
the service and the purpose of the various reports, 
indices, profiles, and other features it includes. By 
reading this User's Guide, you'll learn how to 
make the most of your subscription and, through 
your subscription, you'll learn how to use on-line 
databases, remote computing services, and other 
on-line technologies to their maximum potential. 


The Page Numbering System 

The manner in which the pages are numbered is easily 
understood. Indeed, the numbering method was designed 
to make locating information as simple as possible. 

Each number consists of three parts, e.g., OL20-366-101. 
The components of a sample page number, OL20-366-101, 
are as follows:

As you can see, the first part of the number refers to the 
specific tab section in the On-line Services publication. 

The second part of the number, separated from the first 
part with a hyphen, identifies a specific report found in a 
tab section. 

The third part of the number, also separated by a hyphen, is 
the starting page number of the report. This number will 
often be -101 for the Company Reports. The page numbers 
then increase sequentially through the body of the report 
(e.g., -101, -102, -103, etc.).

The Monthly Newsletter (OL99) 

Before we discuss the various reports, profiles, etc., that 
make up the Datapro Directory of On-line Services, let’s 
consider the monthly newsletter, included in your 
subscription. 

The newsletter (Figure 3) appears on the top of each 
monthly issue you’ll receive. It has two purposes. 

First, it reports on major events, trends, or news stories in 
the on-line industry. Three separate sections of the newslet¬ 


ter include this kind of information. The lead article (“cov¬ 
er story'”) tackles a story in depth. It brings you our editors’ 
analysis of the most significant issue currently facing the 
industry or the most important new product announce¬ 
ment. On occasion, a case study, in-depth company profile, 
or technology overview may appear in the cover story spot. 
The In the Industry section, usually beginning on page 2, 
briefly describes the most significant new on-line products, 
or product enhancements, announced over the course of 
the last month or so. Our opinions regarding the impact of 
such announcements are often included. This section may 
also feature a “mini review,” that is, our hands-on evalua¬ 
tion of a new database, database provider, or communica- 
tions-related software package. Finally, the From the 
Editor’s Desk article on page 3 is a forum for our senior 
editors to speak directly to our readers. Written in a conver¬ 
sational style, this section may include commentary on 
industry trends or events or news of enhancements to the 
Datapro Directory of On-line Services. 

The newsletter’s articles are indexed in the following 
month’s Company/Database Index, to allow for quick 
retrieval. 


The newsletter’s other purpose is to briefly describe the 
most significant reports appearing in the current month’s 
issue, as well as those scheduled for future issues. We

VOL. 6. NO. 9 _ SEPTEMBER 1987 


Service Reigns Where Freedom Rings 


Sole: The Datapro Directory of On¬ 
line Services recently visited the Free 
Library of Philadelphia 's Computer- 
Based Information Center, one of the 
first nonprofit "information broker" 
services. The Center's experiences may 
serve as a lesson/model for companies 
and oilier libraries thinking of setting 
up an in-house on-line information re¬ 
trieval capability. 

Service these days is more likely to 
come with a snarl than with a smile— 
if it comes at all. Flight attendants, 
salesclerks, and bank tellers are loo 
scarce and too busy to provide ser¬ 
vice. according to a recent TIME mag¬ 
azine cover story. The concept of a 
gasoline station as a service station is 
now almost laughable. One place 
where service still thrives, though, is 
in public libraries, as we discovered 
when we visited the Free Library of 
Philadelphia's (FI.P's) Computer- 
Based Information Center (CBIC). 
one of the oldest centers of its kind. 


The FLP's main branch is housed in a 
huge limestone and granite building in 
center city Philadelphia. An exact rep¬ 
lica of the French Ministry of Marine, 
it first opened its doors in 1927. In 
addition to the CBIC. the central 
library boasts one of the world's finest 
collections of materials on automo¬ 
tive history , the world's largest library 
of orchestral scores, and an extensive 
collection of children's books of his¬ 
torical importance from 1837 to the 
present. 


The FLP set up the CBIC in 1975 to 
provide on-line search services. To 
the sophisticated information con¬ 
sumer of the mid-1980s, on-line 
searching may seem like old hat. but 
in 1975 the technology dazzled. The 
Philadelphia Inquirer gushed that 
thanks to on-line information re¬ 
trieval. "the FLP can answer almost 
any question they (patrons) might

OnDisc CD-ROM products, more 
full-text databases, the merging of sig¬ 
nificant files—these are just some of 
the announcements to come from 
DIALOG over the past year. If there is 
a discernablc pattern to these new 
products, services, and innovations, 
it's that DIALOG is aggressively tar¬ 
geting the end-user market. Its tradi¬ 
tional market—librarians and other 
information professionals—remains 
well served, however.

The New York Times and the Hall

Globe and Mail, which is considered 


Canada's national newspaper. Info 
Globe provides on-line access to this 
paper, offers several other Canadian- 
oriented files, software packages for 
use with its financial databases, and a 
CD-ROM product. In addition to in- 
depth coverage of the company and its 
products and services, our new report 
features the results of our hands-on 
testing of Info Globe’s on-line service. 

0 Chemical Abstracts Service—Al¬ 
though Chemical Abstracts, producer 
of the popular Chemical Abstracts 
database, is a nonprofit organization, 
that doesn't mean it isn't aggressive or 
that it's reluctant to capitalize on in¬ 
dustry trends. Its recent unveiling of a 
new service on superconductors. 


which it readied in mere weeks, is a 
case in point: another is its in¬ 
volvement with STN International 
(the Scientific and Technical Informa¬ 
tion Network). STN. which Chemical 
Abstracts markets in the U.S.. now

realize, of course, that you may not always have time to leaf 
through the entire issue as soon as it’s received. By scan¬ 
ning the In This Issue section of the newsletter, however, 
you can pinpoint newly published reports of immediate 
interest. 

On the last page of the newsletter you’ll find the In Future 
Issues section. This summarizes particularly significant 
reports scheduled for publication within the next three 
months. 

The Contents Page 

Each volume of the Datapro Directory of On-line Services 
begins with Contents pages located behind the title page 
(frontispiece) at the front of the binder. Contents pages for 
both volumes are included, with the Contents page for the 
volume in hand appearing first. The Contents gives the title 
of every report and includes page numbers and publication 
dates. The information is organized in the same sequence 
as the tab sections and contains the title and starting page 
number of every report in the service. 

The Contents pages are most useful when you have an 
approximate idea of where something appears in the ser¬ 
vice. Otherwise, you may want to turn to the indices first. 
Figure 4 shows a sample Contents page. 

Company/Database Index (OL05) 

The Company/Database Index (OL05-100-101) is a master 
index to all the material found in the service. The names of 
all the companies and databases covered make up the 
primary entries. Under each company entry you may find

Subject Index (OL07) 

The Subject Index (OL07-100-101) lists dozens of subject 
areas, from accounting to zoological research, and the 
databases associated with each. This index is especially 
useful when you are looking for databases that cover a 
particular subject. Listed under each heading are the names 
of the applicable database(s) and the page number where 
the database profile appears. The Subject Index, like the 
Company/Database Index, is updated every four months, 
and is supplemented in the intervening months by supple¬ 
mentary indices.

Tutorials (OLIO) 

This section includes primer-type reports on the basics of 
on-line searching. Designed for both novice and more 
experienced searchers, the reports build on one another, 
advancing from the general to the very specific. The first 
report in this tab, “An Overview of Online Databases,” 
introduces the field as a whole. From there, more specific 
reports appear, such as “How to Look it Up Online.” 

The reports include examples of on-line searches to bring 
points home. Taken as a whole, this section provides a 
short course in the basics of on-line searching. 

Information Retrieval Services (OL20) 

This tab features detailed company reports that profile 
specific information retrieval services—primarily database 
providers (see Figure 1). Each contains the following

• Company Information —includes the company’s address 
and telephone number, a general overview of the compa¬ 
ny’s history and current product line, and a “Competitive 
Position” section featuring our insights into the vendor’s 
status within the market. 

• Resources and Facilities— contains brief descriptions of 
the vendor’s computer processing center, customer sup¬ 
port services, and sales and marketing services. 

• Processing Services —includes any pricing information 
provided by the vendor. 

• Networking Services —lists the public networks (e.g., 
Tymnet, Telenet, etc.) and in some cases, proprietary 
networks (e.g., DIALNET) that offer access to the ven¬ 
dor’s data files. 

• On-line Databases —provides a listing and brief descrip¬ 
tion of each database the on-line service offers. 

• Other Services —describes specialized services the com¬ 
pany offers that complement its information retrieval 
service. These may include current awareness services, 
private networks, CD-ROM products, or descriptions of 
gateway arrangements the company has made with other 
database providers. 

• Future Plans —reports on what new services the vendor is 
planning for its customers. 

Also, each Information Retrieval Services report published 
since mid-1987 includes a Hands-On Evaluation section, 
set off from the rest of the report in a shaded gray box (see 
Figure 6). Here, Datapro editors report the results of 
Hands-On tests of the vendors’ on-line services. Following 
standard criteria, we describe how easy it is to call up a 
particular vendors’ service, what navigating the system is 
like, what on-line and off-line help is available, and what 
our overall impressions were. We also include actual screen 
shots of the welcome screen and of sample searches. 

Remote Computing Services (RC20) 

This section begins with an in-depth overview of the re¬ 
mote computing industry. This report describes the ser¬ 
vices remote computing companies offer, how to choose 
among the various remote computing services, and who the 
industry’s major players are. It also includes comparison 
columns, which profile more than 400 remote computing 
companies. Following this report are separate company 
reports for each of the major remote computing vendors, 
such as IBM Information Network and GE Information 
Services. 

Profiles (OL30, OL40) 

The Datapro Directory of On-line Services features two 
types of profiles: Company Profiles and On-line Database 
Profiles. The Company Profiles (OL30 Tabs) offer succinct¬ 
ly presented facts on database producers, database provid¬ 


ers, and other companies associated with the information 
retrieval industry. A typical Company Profile contains the 
following information: 

Company name, address, and telephone number 

Affiliation with parent company 

Principal business 

Applications emphasis 

President 

Director of marketing 
Date founded 
Number of employees 
Revenue for last fiscal year 
Primary customers 
Sales concentration 
Product line 

The On-line Databases (OL40 Tabs) feature standardized 
descriptions of more than 2,300 on-line databases. Orga¬ 
nized alphabetically by database name, this section pro¬ 
vides users the opportunity to compare databases before 
settling on a particular on-line service. It also enables users 
to determine if a certain database will meet their needs and 
to choose from several seemingly similar databases. 

Each database profile contains the following information: 
Name of database 

Name, address, and telephone number of the information 
retrieval service that offers the database or the database 
producer 
Contact name 
Type of organization 
Type of database

CUSTOMER SERVICE—DON'T 
OVERLOOK IT! 

While most people think of us as publishers, Datapro 
Research Corporation is, first and foremost, a manager of 
information for our subscribers. Accordingly, we place an 
unusual emphasis on customer service. Some of the ways in 
which our Customer Service staff can serve you are out¬ 
lined here: 


• Refurbishing. Missing pages, lost issues, broken binders, 
and damaged books are readily replaced at a nominal 
charge. 

• Reprints. Our subscribers frequently request reprints of 
selected reports to share with their associates and custom¬ 
ers. Datapro can quickly fill reprint orders for several 
copies or several thousand at reasonable prices. You can 
reach our Reprint Coordinator at 1-800-328-2776. Data- 
pro’s copyrights prohibit any reproduction, duplication, 
or storage (on any medium, including electronic) of any 
portion of our information services without written 
permission. 

• Alternate media. Some Datapro customers have a special 
need to obtain Datapro’s information services in a medi¬ 
um other than loose-leaf ring binders, such as microfiche, 
diskette, or magnetic tape. Please direct your inquiries to 
our National Accounts Coordinator at 1-800-328-2776. 

• Subscription-related services. Our Customer Service staff

• Archival reports and back issues. Datapro maintains an 
archive of all reports we have published since 1970. 
Subscribers interested in tracking product histories, mar¬ 
ket evolutions, and other issues can use this storehouse of 
information. To obtain copies of old reports, or for 
assistance in searching Datapro’s archives, contact the 
Reprint Coordinator at 1-800-328-2776. Costs and avail¬ 
ability of such reports vary depending on the nature of 
your request. 

• Special publications. Datapro publishes dozens of feature 
reports, softbound books, and loose-leaf books ( not up¬ 
dated under subscription) on many topics. We regularly 
issue catalogs of these publications to our subscribers and 
the general public. Our Customer Service staff can mail 
you a copy of the latest catalog. 


HOW DATAPRO DOES IT 

Underlying Datapro’s editorial philosophy are three funda¬ 
mental commitments: 

• Remain totally responsive to industry needs, events, and 
trends. 

• Publish reports with the highest level of quality and 
timeliness possible. 

• Support and develop the strongest editorial and technical 
team in our industry. 

Datapro/McGraw-Hill supports these commitments every 

day. 


• Special handling. Customer Service has a variety of 
mechanisms to expedite delivery of Datapro information 
to meet special requirements, including courier services, 
facsimile, and special packaging. Inquire for details. 

From time to time, Datapro will instruct you in the Filing 
Instructions to replace or delete older reports from your 
binders to make room for new material. You may wish to 
set up your own informal system for archiving reports that 
have been removed. Datapro can furnish additional bind¬ 
ers for a nominal charge. 


Our service to you evolves from two unique Datapro 
capabilities. First, as the undisputed leader in the business 
of supplying loose-leaf reference services to the data pro¬ 
cessing, office automation, and communications indus¬ 
tries, Datapro’s status permits us to monitor these 
industries as an insider. We are equipped to track literally 
hundreds of new technologies and industry trends, analyze 
them with objective insight, and present them to our 
readers on an exceptionally timely basis. Second, since no 
environment remains static, we have created the Datapro 
Directory of On-line Services as a loose-leaf service that is 



We dialed up Questei through the Infonet network, calling 
up via a local node. Finding response time to be slow, we 
called a Questei rep who recommended that we use In- 
fonet’s WATS line. We did, and response time improved 
markedly. While dialing-up Questei did involve an extra 
step or two (see Figure 1) since its computers are based in 
France, it was not an impediment. 

Questel’s system is not a simple one. It is command driven, 
and there is little in the way of on-line help screens (see 
Figure 2). (One useful file, however, shown in Figure 3. and 
reached by typing in ..FI, lists all Questei databases.) U.S.- 
based users should have a definite need to search Questei as 
some Questei files may be loaded on “friendlier” hosts. 
Also, many of its files are in French or relate specifically to 
France. However, other files are exclusive to Questei. 

We took a look at one of these Questei exclusives. Transin , 
an international source of information on industrial tech¬ 
niques and new products. As shown in Figure 4, the system 
first gave us the option of applying our previous search 
strategy to the newly specified file. It then formally logged 
us out of the file we had been in, giving us a useful record of 
our activity in that file. Searching under the term “solar 
energy," we found 31 references and called up 3 using the 
..li (list) command. The records we retrieved represented a 


curious blend of French and English, but the information 
was largely in English. The abstracts were long and unusu¬ 
ally informative. 

As mentioned, the Questei system takes a fair amount of 
time to learn, and the U.S. user needs a good reason to tap 
Questel’s files. Questei reports that the typical U.S. cus¬ 
tomer concentrates on pharmaceutical research, finding it 
convenient to be able to perform chemical structure and 
patent research without switching hosts. 

Documentation does not appear to be a Questei strong suit. 
The “blue sheets” we saw, although comprehensive, were 
not clearly organized and were poorly formatted, making 
information somewhat hard to find. Its “Mimguide." while 
jam-packed with information, was also in need of 
improved formatting. 

The Questei system software offers all the standard fea¬ 
tures—use of Boolean operators, truncation, qualifying for 
date, proximity operators, etc. Off-line prints are available, 
as is on-line ordering of documents. As mentioned, the 
system will save your search strategy for you, for possible 
use in another file. However, if Questei is to become a 
powerhouse in this country, it needs to work on its docu¬ 
mentation and use of help screens. It also needs to offer 
more files applicable to a North American audience. 


Figure 6. The Hands-On Evaluation section, included in company reports published since mid-1987, present the results of our editors’ 
evaluation of the particular on-line service. It’s here that our impressions of the service, from logon to logoff, are recounted.

ducer, database, or specific subject area of interest. This is where you start when you do not know where the information might be located 
in the service or are unfamiliar with the product area. The Indices will direct you to all the reports and profiles in the service and provide you 
with the widest choice of places to begin your research. 

2. Use the Contents page to quickly locate a specific report when you know in which volume of the service it is found. The Contents is also 
handy for browsing among the titles found in the service. 

3. In trying to narrow your information retrieval, database selection, or remote computing services down to a select few, use the following 
approach: 

Step 1. Scan through the Company and On-line Database Profiles. These provide information on the dozens of 
information retrieval services, hundreds of database producers, and more than 2,000 databases that make up the on-line industry. Similarly, 
to review the characteristics of hundreds of remote computing services, turn to the comparison columns following the first report behind 
Tab RC20. 


Step 2. Read Datapro's detailed Company Reports (in Tabs OL20 and RC20) on each of the information retrieval and re¬ 
mote computing services you have identified. These reports will provide you with the opinion and support you need to recognize the 
advantages and restrictions of a particular service and its offerings for your application.

breakthroughs, or market trends. 


An Overview of Alphanumeric Display Terminals 


The first "dumb" icrminal featuring limited editing capa¬ 
bilities was introduced in 1472 b> Tear Siegler, Im ..'Data 
Products Division. Ibis terminal was used basically lor 
data entry applications. Since then, the video display termi¬ 
nal (VDT. or CRT. as it is commonly called) has grown into 
the principal interface between people and computers. As 
computers continue to permeate every aspect of our soci¬ 
ety . more and more people are being exposed to them not 
only as a business tool, but as a useful household and 
educational commodity. Originally invented as a "glass 
teletype." the display terminal has developed to a point 
where it is a primary component in the vast majority of 
modern computer applications, including data entry, in- 
quiry/response, telemarketing, computer graphics, word 
processing/text editing, and accessing remote databases. 
For the purpose of this report, we will focus on alphanu¬ 
meric display terminals designed for general-purpose busi¬ 
ness applications. 

Enhancements in the design and functionality of the cath¬ 
ode-ray tube (C RT) have contributed to the growth of the 
market. However, one of the major controlling factors in 
terms of how n affects the end user, is price. Originally , 
dumb terminals were the least expensive, while smart 
terminals and user-programmable terminals were respec¬ 
tively. more expensive; price was proportionate to capabili¬ 
ty. While this is still true, advances in technology have 
caused the lines of definition between w hat is dumb and 
what is smart to blur. These technological advances are 
responsible for the drastic drop in prices over the past ten 
years and the virtual extinction of the dumb terminal. 
When considering that a little more than live years ago. 
only the most basic dumb terminals carried a price tag 
below $1.000. and today, the price has fallen below $400. it 
is obvious that the technological improvements in the 
display terminal market have had a significant impact 
upon price. 



This report focuses on alphanumeric display ter¬ 
minals designed for general-purpose business ap¬ 
plications. It includes a brief historical summary of 
the market: current market trends; developments 
in ergonomics; and a look at the industry's major 
segments. Despite the declining prices of alpha¬ 
numeric display terminals, this market remains 
viable. Terminal vendors continue to come and go. 
but the major players are maintaining respectable 
market shares. 


Another factor in the decline in prices is terminal emula¬ 
tion. Although IBM continues to dominate the market with 
its popular .1270 Information Display System. 1270-com¬ 
patible terminals and peripherals are plentilul in today s 
market. This market saturation of full-featured IBM imita¬ 
tors. at lower than IBM cost, has caused Big Blue to ad.iust 
its prices downward to maintain the upper hand in its own 

Other popular compatible markets are the Digital Equip¬ 
ment C orporation VTI00 and VT200 markets. As with 
IBM. Digital has realized a sizable following into these 
areas. Many vendors are raking in profits by marketing 
lesser-priced clones of the VTI00 and VT200 Video Dis¬ 
play Family terminals. 

GENERAL CATEGORIES 


linals discussed in this report have three 
imon: I) each has a keyboard that can 
lonitor that can display a full alphanumeric 
,ct. 2) each has the capability to send and 


computer; and 1) each is marketed for general-purpose 
usage in the United States and C anada and is identified asa 
distinct product to end users. 


Three general categories of terminals have been deter¬ 
mined: dumb, smart, and 

user programmable: the definitions are listed below. 


Dumb terminals offer a limited number of functions; most 
feature Teletype compatibility. 



( scr-progmmmul'lc Ior intelligent) terminals feature soft¬ 
ware support. T he vendor ty pically provides an operating 
system, an assembler- or compiler-driven programming 
language, subroutines. I/O utilities, one or more protocol 
emulators, and one or two application programs, such as

Responding to the Industry 

It takes over 35 individual loose-leaf services for Datapro 
to report adequately on the many separate segments of the 
information technology market. The range of coverage 
required is staggering. We must follow tens of thousands of 
products offered by more than 20,000 individual vendors. 

Datapro continually tracks industry events and needs 
through an ongoing variety of programs: 

• Our Editorial Charter encourages each of our editors to 
maintain close contact with the users and the industry, 
ensuring that our reports contain meaningful commen¬ 
tary and analysis, and guaranteeing the superior respon¬ 
siveness of all Datapro services. 

• Advisory Boards of industry practitioners give us realistic 
overviews, advice, and opinions about each of our ser¬ 
vices. They assist us in evaluating the quality of our 
services on a monthly basis. 


THE DATAPRO PRODUCT FAMILY 

Each type of Datapro service is designed to be an integral 
part of a “cluster” of publications covering a specific 
market segment. The publications are designed so that one 
type complements another. Together, two or three types of 
Datapro products will comprise our total product line for a 
given market segment. Datapro Directory of On-line Ser¬ 
vices is part of the “communications cluster,” which also 
includes the following reports:
