Title
ERIC on CD-ROM and RIE : a comparison of search results and user satisfaction
Source
Reference librarian. 1996, no.53, S.105-112
Year
1996
Abstract
From Sep 88 to Oct 90, Houston Cole Library, Jacksonville State University, Alabama, spent $ 4.852 for search fees for ERIC online. The popularity of the service was the stimulus to locate funds to purchase a workstation for ERIC on CD-ROM. The availability of a University faculty research grant provided the opportunity to fund the workstation and perform a research project during the transition. Describes a study comparing the ERIC print index, Resources in Education, to the ERIC Index in CD-ROM format. The study contrasts the 2 formats in the areas of accuracy of results, time savings and user satisfaction
