Current Contents on diskette

Library Systems Newsletter [November 1991]

We recently had a chance to work with Current Contents on diskette, a product of ISI. Not only does it provide a weekly service from which one can print that which meets a particular user's needs, 'but one can set up and save a custom search profile to run each week against the new article.

Keyword searching is particularly useful because it includes access to keywords in an article's bibliography. The product is available in six multi-disciplinary areas. Each is priced at $365 per year, except life sciences, for which there are two levels of coverage at $320 and $495 per year, respectively.

There also is an option which provides abstracts with the service. The price for it is $795 for all except the life sciences, Which is priced at $995 per year.

The diskettes can be on 3.5" or 5.25" including format for IBM PCs or clones; and Macintosh 3.5". A two-week trial review is available without charge.
