CompendexPlus on NOTIS

Library Systems Newsletter [August 1989]

Engineering Information, Inc. (El), a not-for-profit information service dedicated to the worldwide dissemination of literature in all of the engineering and technical disciplines, and NOTIS have announced the signing of an agreement to offer CompendexPlus tapes on the NOTIS system effective immediately. El data base tapes will be available to NOTIS installations through special software developed by NOTIS for loading, storage and retrieval using the same procedures and commands as the NOTIS online catalog. NOTIS has also added several features for these data base, including Boolean logic and special indexing.

Earlier, El had announced significant changes in its pricing structure to encourage wider use of its electronic data bases on individual in-house retrieval systems. The pricing concept will now be extended to multi-user in-house retrieval systems. The new pricing applies to all of the data bases published by El. These files include CompendexPlus, an integrated data base offering descriptive abstracts and bibliographic information for both the periodical engineering literature and conference proceedings; Compendex, covering the periodical engineering literature exclusively, El Engineering Meetings, covering conference proceedings; and the Engineering & Industrial Software Directory, third edition, just published.
