BRS has developed and mounted a bibliographic database that covers mainframes, micros, and minis; software; online databases and personal computing. The Data Processing and Information Science Contents (DISC) database became available on September 1 with records dating back to July 1982. It will be updated weekly with nearly 200 new documents drawn primarily from U.S. journals. No price has yet to be announced for the database.
DISC includes a full text display of the tables of contents of the journals covered. Each table of contents is rekeyed and enhanced with data such as publication type, classification code, ISSN and the address, telephone number, and subscription price of each journal. Publications covered include: Byte, Computer Business News, Computerworld, Creative Computing, Database, Datamation, EDP Weekly, IBM Systems Journal, IDP Report, MIS Week, Microcomputing, Online, Online Review, Personal Computing, and Popular Computing.
