Title
'Can I find it on PAIS?' : Comparing PAIS on CD-ROM and PAIS on DIALOG.
Source
Database. 13(1990) H.6, S.37-42
Year
1990
Abstract
The study explains the perceived differences in retrieval patterns between the on-line PAIS (Public Affairs Information Services) data base on DIALOG (File 49) and PAIS on CD-ROM. Describes the search strategies applied to the 2 data bases and the result obtained. Concludes that if users can bring to PAIS on CD-ROM search expertise gained elsewhere, then, in the Expert mode, having gained sufficient undestanding of specific search techniques and file structure, the motivated searcher can achieve results equivalent to the results of searching PAIS on DIALOG
