Data Research has announced a new software module—journal citation—that greatly enhances a library's ability to help researchers locate citation information quickly and efficiently. The module connects periodical data bases—such as those available from Information Access Corporation, UMI, and Wilson-—to the library' s serials holdings. When the user locates a citation to a journal article, the system immediately reports whether the library subscribes to that journal, at which branch(es) the journal can be found, and the local call number. Users may place photocopy requests, online, once a citation is located. The holdings are automatically updated as each new issue is checked in through the Data Research Serials module. The holdings of libraries throughout a region may be reported through use of the Data Research Union List of Serials module.
