    B. Indexes and Abstracts--Electronic

      1. Indexes and Abstracts--Electronic--Internet Databases

        Internet--accessible Online Public Access Catalogs (OPACS) and other information systems.

        Access to Online Public Access Catalogs (OPACS) via the Internet provides zoo and aquarium librarians with a new method for inexpensively locating bibliographic records and searching databases by author, title, subject and keyword. Some Internet accessible OPACS are particularly rich in natural history and conservation related references. Only a computer, modem, communications software and telephone line are needed to access most Internet-connected systems. Several systems are listed here as examples in a widely growing field. Many Internet access providers include library catalogs as a menu category on their systems. If your local college, university, or museum library catalog is available on the Internet, or via direct dialup, you should become familiar with it.

        Library of Congress Information System (LOCIS). Available directly via Telnet to LOCIS.LOC.GOV or 140.147.254.3. Also accessible via Hytelnet and many gopher systems. In addition to bibliographic records, LOCIS includes copyright records and serials files and organization files.

        Smithsonian Libraries Information System (SIRIS). Accessible by Telnet to SIRIS.SI.EDU. or 160.111.4.22; WWW access available at www.siris.si.edu. No logon or password is required. Use the 3270 flavor of Telnet if it is available to you.

        University of California Melvyl System. telnet to 132.239.50.16 which is the University of California San Diego Infopath site. Access is to the entire University of California library catalog. The Marc format which is a display option is great for people who do their own cataloging.

        University of Wisconsin - Madison. telnet to LEGO.ADP.WISC.EDU or 144.92.104.51. No login required. Includes the holdings at the library of Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Center.

Although the Carl Corporations' Uncover database serves as part of a document delivery service, special accounts are not required to purchase document delivery or search the database. The database includes table of contents information from thousands of journals. There is no charge for searching; you pay only your normal connect time fee (if any) for Internet access. The Uncover database is not as complete as many commerical databases, but it is often enough to answer a question or identify a reference at much less expense than a search in commercial databases.

      4. Indexes and Abstracts--Electronic--CD-ROMs

      In addition to dial acccess via modem from major vendors such as Knight Ridder (formerly DIALOG), OCLC, and H.W. Wilson, many bibliographic databases are now available in CD-Rom format. The cost is all represented in the initial purchase of the index. No online time is charged. The advantage is that the library user can often search without an intermediary and always search without fear of unpredictable costs.
