Title
¬A look at SilverPlatter's MacSPIRS
Source
CD-ROM professional. 6(1993) no.3, S.142-143
Year
1993
Abstract
Notes the growing trends among CD-ROM producers towards the provision of CD-ROM search software to be run on the Macintosh microcomputer. Reviews the particular features of one such system, MacSPIRS, developed by SilverPlatter Information Inc., by examining MEDLINE, one of the databases running on MacSPIRS (ver.2.1). Evaluates the best features of the software, the way in which records are displayed, Boolean operators and other advanced search features, printing of records, and help information. Notes some of the confusing features of the system and concludes that the impressions gained by users of the sysem will depend largely on their previous CD-ROM searching experience
