This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

Several thousand research databases can now be reached by telephone lines. A physician can access this information in several different ways: the least "user friendly" way is to query the database directly using its own unique commands and syntax. The search language for each database must be learned and searching can be difficult. A better alternative is to subscribe to online services such as Dialog or BRS, which provide access to many databases, are easier to learn and use, and have a single search language for all databases. These protocols, however, still require training and frequent reference to a manual.
