Abstract
Discusses the advent of software packages (termed front end packages) which are installed on PCs or Macintosh machines and provide the user with an interface to online databases. The packages involved usually provide graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and are dedicated to particular online systems. Focuses on KR ProBase which was introduced by Knight-Ridder in 1995 for information specialists to search DIALOG and DataStar (though not yet with a single interface). Describes the features of this product. Concludes with a brief discussion of the alternatives to host specific software packagaes, Z39.50 and Web browsers such as Netscape
Object
ProBase
