Dawson launches new Web-based reference service

Library Systems Newsletter [February 1997]

Dawson, the British holding company whose holdings include Faxon and EOS International, has launched a new WWW-based online reference service called Information Quest (IQ). The service offers full-text searching of a database of six million table of contents entries from over 12,000 journals dating back to 1990. Coverage includes scientific, technical, medical, and business journals. Selected journal articles are delivered with any graphics which may have been included in the original document.

The service includes WWW-based ordering and subscription management from Faxon Acquire. Also available is an IQ Alert Service, which notifies clients via e-mail of results from searches based on previously established parameters.

Subscribing libraries will have 24-hour access, seven days a week. Group user password administration, as well as statistical management and usage information, will be provided.
