Forestry Literature Access through Computer Systems
Abstract:Use of computer systems for bibliographic searching has many advantages for foresters, including time saved in locating references. Many bibliographic systems can give the user a list of published references on his topic, as well as brief abstracts; and some systems reference unpublished reports, statistics, legislation, or research still in progress. Systems differ in the products given users, the subjects covered, the types of documents referenced, and costs charged to users, but all are concerned with facilitating the flow of information.
