MEDLINE Express Continues to Expand

SilverPlatter Information continues to add discs to its MEDLINE Express database. Libraries using the entire database (1966-1997) should plan on 15 CDs in the latest set, an increase of three over last year. So that you can anticipate future growth, SilverPlatter officials announced they expect the database to expand by about one disc each year. The additional discs allow SilverPlatter to accommodate new features incorporated in the 1997 edition. These new features are outlined in the new edition's accompanying documentation.

If you have questions or want to subscribe to any reference database -- CD-ROM, online or Internet-accessible -- contact Jim Hensinger or Karen Graham .
