On-Line-Technology-The New Way to Find Engineering Information 780095
Scientists, engineers, information specialists, and other professionals are using on-line retrieval systems to locate information rapidly and precisely in large data bases of literature citations and abstracts. Many data bases are available for such searching, including one covering SAE publications.
On-line searches can be carried out in minutes, with greater precision and lower cost than manual searches of equivalent quality. Most on-line searching is done by librarians and technical information specialists, but many chemists, engineers, and other professionals do their own searching. For some data bases, including SAE, users can order copies of the original documents, directly from the terminal.
