Title
¬A HyperCard program to assist users at a self-help periodicals information center

Abstract
Describes the development of a periodicals self help instruction program written in HyperCard for the Macintosh by the Science and Medicine Library of the University of Toronto, Canada. The program explains the general concepts of how to search for article citations in periodical indexes; and how to find locations for periodicals in the online catalogue. Preliminary testing has shown that many people use the program but there has been no discernible impact on the number of periodical questions at the Reference Desk. A more detailed study of user response needs to be undertaken to learn if the tutorial should be revised
