Abstract
In Oct 1991, OCLC introduced FirstSearch, an online reference product designed for the end-user. Through a menu interface, which features extensive online help, more than thirty databases, covering a range of subject areas, are currently available, including three unique to OCLC: WorldCat, Article 1st and Contents 1st. Describes the results of an experiment carried out at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campuses during the 1992-3 academic year. The experiment permitted unlimited searching of all available FirstSearch databases by faculty, staff and students, a potential audience of approximately 60.000
