Title
CD-ROM market directories ondisc : will that be six of one or a half dozen of the other?
Source
CD-ROM professional. 6(1993) no.4, S.81-82,84,86-80
Year

Abstract
Reviews and compares the 2 major CD-ROM directory databases covering available CD-ROM databases: CD-ROMs in prit, published by Meckler Co.; and CD-ROM directory, published by TFPL Publ. Covers: system requirements, scope, coverage and overlap, data collection, data structure, saerchable indexes, subject indexing, special indexes, record content, searching power, ease of use, output capabilities, terms of availability, documentation, help and technical support, and related information products. Concludes that neither product has a fatal flaw of any sort, each has its own special strenghts, one or more of which may provide the basis for preferring one over the other
