Abstract
Reviews Gale's Ready Reference Shelf CD-ROM which enables library patrons to find their own information. Although this CD is marketed to libraries for patrons to do their own referencing, it is more appropriately used by librarians since it is an index to information sources, not the sources themselves. The CD gives Access to the following resources: Encyclopedia of Associations; Publishers Directory; Gale Directory of Publications and Broadcast Media; Directories in Print; Newsletters in Print; Gale Directory of Databases; Directory of Special Libraries; Research Centres Directory; and the Encyclopedia of American Religions. The software allows a number of sources to be searches simultaneously. Discusses quick searches; extended searches; the command line expert search; and compares the product with Microsoft's Bookshelf which contains a dictionary, almanac, thesaurus, basic encyclopedia and related material
