Data Research Associates (DRA) now has the ability to load and retrieve not only IAC journal citation files, but also those of the H.W. Wilson Company and ABI/Inform. Searches, including Boolean and keyword, can be performed at any terminal and require no more skill than a regular OPAC search. The major financial implication is additional disk storage. The other leaders in the rapidly emerging journal citation field are CARL, Innovative Interfaces, and NOTIS. The last two levy substantial additional software license fees for the journal citation module.
