1. DIALOG DIGITAL REFERENCE LIBRARY ON FOLIO REPLACED BY WEB-BASED COLLECTIONS
Twenty-one Dialog files, comprising a significant portion of the Folio Reference Shelf, have been replaced by a combination of Web-based products, networked CD-ROMs and print resources.
The move to Web-based products for the majority of this suite of files brings vast improvements in accessibility and searchability. The former Folio location of each file will have a forwarding address, so these addresses do not have to be jotted down. But why wait until the pressure is on? Visit the sites listed below and familiarize yourself with these powerful new tools today.
