Abstract
Describes the successful creation of a computerized ready reference file, at the reference desk at California State University at Long Beach, consisting of some of the most frequently asked reference questions. The original ready reference file was on 3 by 5 cards and the project to computerize the file was constrained by time necessitating the use of dBase 3 Plus database management software as the only such software immediately to hand. The system is easy to use and maintain, and uses dBase 3 Plus or dBase 4 software
