Abstract

Before adding online databases to the printed sources of information, searchers should be well aware that they cannot be used as simply as a book is chosen. Online beginners will have to familiarize themselves with the following items:
  • • choice and installation of an online work station (incl. hard— and software) (Sect. 6.1.1),

  • • specifics of data transmission (Sect. 6.1.2),

  • • logon to a host (Sect. 6.1.3),

  • • the host’s command language,

  • • structure of the database.
