Title: Machine-Readable Data Bases In Australia: A State-Of-The-Art Report
Author(s): Schmidmaier, Dagmar
Subject(s): Reference services (Libraries) --Automation Database searching Online bibliographic searching Information retrieval Australia
Abstract: This paper aims to present an overview of the use of machine-readable data bases in Australia. (A summary of some commerically available services is given in the Appendix.) I will discuss the Australian scene in the light of some problems which are, if not unique to, certainly aggravated by the Australian environment. These include problems of geography and population distribution, formulation of national information policy, government support of research and development, and the Australian telecommunications network. Plans expounded during the last four years have aroused an unprecedented interest among librarians. Unfortunately, progress to date has been disappointing.
