Title
SPIRS, WinSPIRS, and OVID : a comparison of three MEDLINE-on-CD-ROM interfaces
Source
Bulletin of the Medical Library Association. 84(1996) no.1, S.63-70
Year

Abstract
Reports results of a study to compare 3 CD-ROM interfaces working on MEDLINE databases: SPIRS (ver. 3.11) and WinSPIRS (ver. 1.0) from SilverPlatter and OVID (ver. 3.0, DOS and WINDOWS interfaces) from CD Plus Technologies (now OVID Technologies). Though the database is the same, there are substantial differences between the interfaces in the way the data is presented and can be searched. Discusses these different approaches and includes a detailed comparative table. Concludes that all 3 interfaces are good yet none of them is perfect; each has desirable and unfortunate features. Together, they offer an enormous range of possibilities. Users would benefit if most of the better features listed (such as easy menu, free text retrieval, pre exploded thesaurus terms) were implemented in future versions of these interfaces and if system operators were given greater latitude to determine the system defaults appropriate to their specific situations and customers. A full, comparative table of features are presented for SPIRS, WinSPIRS, OVID(DOS) and OVID(Windows)
