Title:Desktop Research and Software Connectivity
Author(s):Rosenberg, Victor
Subject(s):Machine-readable bibliographic data
Database management
Libraries --Data processing
Abstract:"Desktop research" encompasses the various tools that a scholar requires in the course of his or her work. The "scholar's workstation" of the future will involve several software packages from a number of developers to accomplish the tasks required in doing research and creating publications. To function effectively, the programs must be able to interact with each other and communicate data. A common user interface will ease the learning of each new addition to the software repertoire. A model workstation is discussed that allows searching of bibliographic databases or library catalogs, the assembly of bibliographies, the ordering and acquisition of documents, and the preparation of manuscripts. (The workstations to support the concept of desktop research were provided under an Apple Library of Tomorrow grant from Apple Computer, Inc.)
