Title
Databases online and on CD-ROM : how they differ, let us count the ways

Abstract
The study investigated the factors of response time, coverage, content and cost in CD-ROM and online versions of 2 popular databases: SilverPlatter Information Ins.'s and DIALOG's version of Psychological Abstracts (PsycINFO and PsycLIT) and Sociological Abstracts (Sociofile and Sociological Abstracts). Results confirm that, though the databases may be similar, significant differences do exist. Specifically, online searching gives a more consistent or predictable response time and yields greater currency, consistency and coverage
