Edited by Karen McKelvey, CERFnet

INTRODUCTION

Internet-Accessible Library Catalogs and Databases is coauthored by Dr.
Art St. George of the University of New Mexico and Dr. Ron Larsen of
the University of Maryland. Dr. St. George says this document, began as
an effort to provide additional service to the network community
locally. However, it became apparent that the library resources were of
broader appeal than that.
It contains a listing of over 100 online library catalogs and
databases available within the United States and beyond. It contains
listings of U.S. and international library catalogs and databases,
dial-up libraries, Campus-Wide Online Information Systems, and bulletin
board systems. Each listing gives a brief description of the resource
and instructions on how to access it, as well as places to contact for
more information. Listings include such material as Columbia
University's online library catalog (CLIO), Pennsylvanias State
University online card catalog system (PENpages), and the Colorado
Alliance of Research Libraries (CARL) and its 25 individual resource
listings of libraries and information databases, such as the Metro
Denver Facts database.
This catalog is an ongoing project. If you have any suggestions,
comments, or additions, please send them to Dr. Art St. George by
electronic mail to [email protected] or [email protected]
This document is formatted and edited by Karen McKelvey of the
California Education and Research Federation Network (CERFnet)
([email protected]). Carlos Robles of CERFnet also contributes to the
formatting of this document.

Description
The MELVYL catalog is the online union catalog of monographs
and serials (periodicals) held by the nine University of
California campuses and affiliated libraries. The monograph
database, which includes records for books and nonbook
materials such as maps, films, musical scores, and sound
recordings, contains over 5.5 million unique titles
representing nearly 11 million holdings at UC, the California
State Library, and the Center for Research Libraries.
Collection strengths include agriculture, dry lands,
oceanography, entomology, performing arts (especially film and
television), photography, Californiana, materials on Mexico and
Central America, 17th and 18th century British literature,
health sciences, and science fiction.

The periodicals file, which includes newspapers, journals,
proceedings, etc., contains over 640,000 unique titles
representing over 1.2 million holdings from UC, Stanford
University, the University of Southern California, the
19-campus California State University system, and selected
other libraries.

The MELVYL catalog also provides access to two databases of
article citations: MEDLINE and Current Contents. The MELVYL
MEDLINE database contains the current five-year file of the
National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE database, which includes
article citations and abstracts, indexed from over 4,000 health
sciences journals. The Current Contents file, from the Institute
for Scientific Information, contains one year of citations to
articles in over 6,500 journals in seven broad subject
disciplines. Use of these files, unlike the books and
periodicals files, is restricted to the UC community.

The "DLA Bulletin" and the "Mynd of the MELVYL Catalog," two
publications describing the online catalog and its development
and use, are also available online. The MELVYL catalog also
provides access via TELNET to other remote library systems on
the Internet.

Network Access
The system is on the Internet and can be accessed using the
host name melvyl.ucop.edu or any of four Internet addresses
(31.1.0.1, 31.0.0.11, 31.0.0.13, 31.1.0.11).

Who Can Use the Catalog
The MELVYL online catalog and periodicals file are universally
available. Access to MEDLINE and Current Contents files are
restricted under a license agreement to the University of
California faculty, staff, and students.

GopAC.BERKELEY.EDU

Instructions:
1. telnet GopAC.BERKELEY.EDU

VT100 emulation is possible but not explicitly present. Logoff
instructions are provided. GLADIS is public access and it does
not require a password for access. The catalog covers the

Moftt Undergraduate Library, the Bancroft Library and some 23
branch libraries. The catalog is complete for monographic
holdings from 1977 to the present and incomplete for
monographic holdings prior to that date. We are in the process
of converting older monographic records, so more of these
records appear in the catalog daily. All of the serial titles,
both past and present, are reflected in GLADIS. GLADIS also
contains records for maps, manuscripts, audiovisual materials
and computer software. Circulation information (whether an item
is checked out or not) is available for some library locations
(six libraries as of September, 1989).

Northwestern University LUIS
PACX.ACNS.NWU.EDU

Connecting:
VT100 emulation is supported and logoff instructions are
provided. Northwestern University's "LUIS" online catalog may
be accessed from other academic institutions via the Internet,
using telnet. The library catalog's telnet address is
PACX.ACNS.NWU.EDU. Once connected, press or ;
you will receive the prompt "enter class". Type 60, then press
or twice. At this point you will be prompted
for a terminal type; VT100 is to be preferred, assuming your
local communications software will provide VT100 emulation.
Pressing or again will provide you the online
catalog's introductory screen.

To sign off, please enter a percent sign (%) at any prompt. You
can then disconnect your telnet session. PLEASE NOTE that the
online catalog AUTOMATICALLY disconnects if there is no
keyboard activity within a two-minute period.

Remote users of Northwestern's LUIS catalog who may be familiar
with other NOTIS-based online catalogs will note some
differences in our implementation. Of particular interest may
be NU's provision of cross-references in the online catalog, a
feature that is to appear in the commercial release scheduled
for the end of 1990. This LUIS version does not provide
keyword/Boolean searching, but does offer what we call "search
qualication", the ability of a user to limit an author, title,
or subject search result by any of several elements present in
the coordinated indexes: date, format (e.g., serial, video),
other word, or holding library. Use of this feature is
explained in a help screen which may be accessed by typing an
ampersand (&).

Your Connection to the Purdue Libraries


Dial-up Using a Microcomputer and Modem
This feature may be employed by anyone using a microcomputer,
modem, and communications software, whether from their home,
office, dorm room, or from a library. To properly set the
communications software to access the library computer and
THOR, set your terminal (computer), modem and communications
software for:

Communication even parity
Settings 7 data bits
1 stop bit
XON/XOFF enabled

Telephone computer (317) 494-9400
Number(s) help (317) 494-2857

Hours: Monday - Saturday 8:00 a.m. - Midnight
Sunday 11:00 a.m. - Midnight

You can dial-up to THOR with a variety of microcomputers and
software. For whatever hardware and software combination you
use, you must learn how to type the IBM and
functions. This information can be obtained from the Library
Systems Department ((317) 494-2857). The most common
combination is an IBM PC compatible computer with VT100
terminal emulation. For this combination these key combinations
work:

and simultaneously
esc O [capital O] p

After connecting to the computer, press several times until
the system responds with the "DIAL": prompt.

Access from the Internet
Users of any computer connected to the Internet (which includes
most multi-user computers on campus) can connect directly to
THOR without using a telephone line. Different combinations of
computer hardware will connect in different ways, but some
common types are discussed below. If none of these combinations
seem to describe your situation, or neither method works, call
the Library Systems Department ((317)-494-2857) for assistance.
You might also get help from your local computer system
administrator.

From terminals connected to a UNIX computer:
- log on to your UNIX account as usual
- make sure the TERM environment variable is set
correctly
- type, "tn3270 lib.cc.purdue.edu" and press RETURN

From terminals connected to the VM (IBM) computer:
- log on to your VM account as usual
- type, "telnet lib.cc.purdue.edu" and press ENTER

From many off-campus computers on the Internet: - follow the
appropriate set of instructions above - if "lib.cc.purdue.edu"
does not work, use "128.210.9.8" instead.

The system should display the THOR database selection menu. If
anything else happens, or if the system prints numerous
extraneous characters with the menu, disconnect and seek help.
Once properly connected to THOR, you must know how to type the
IBM and functions. Users already connected to
an IBM system can use the same keys that they use for their own
account. For UNIX users, these keys are set by their System
Administrator for each terminal type. Frequently, and
will work for , and and will perform a
, but check with your System Administrator for the
correct combinations.

Description of T H O R THe Online Resource
THOR is an on-line database of information about books,
periodicals, and other materials in the Purdue University
Libraries. All serials and books added to the Libraries after
June 1976 can be found in THOR. Records for older books are
continually being added.

THOR is controlled through a set of single letter commands
followed by an equal sign (=). Type the command, your search
topic, and press the ENTER key. Upper and lower case are
treated the same. For instructions on searching, type the
search command without the equal sign. Example: "a" by itself
gives instructions on author searching.

University of Wisconsin Library Catalogs
Madison and Milwaukee Campuses Network Library System (NLS)
NLS.ADP.WISC.EDU

The Network Library System (NLS) is the online public catalog
of the libraries at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. NLS supports separate online
catalogs for each campus.

The UW-Madison online catalog contains more than 1.7 million
titles cataloged since 1976, located in 25 libraries on the
campus and at the Center for Research Libraries in Chicago.
This represents roughly 50% of the collections. The
UW-Milwaukee catalog contains approximately 900,000 titles and
represents 85% of the general collection.

Network Access:
If available on your system, please use tn3270 (telnet

Library System: ALICE

ALICE - the Deakin University Library OPAC

Internet access to Deakin University Library (ALICE)
Access to the Deakin University Library's online library system
can be gained from any terminal which is connected to the
INTERNET network.

The Library's online system contains records for all items held
in the Library, as well as items which are on-order. In
addition, the on-line system also contains similar information
on the holdings at the Gordon Technical College (GTC) Library.

Instructions on the use of ALICE is given in the booklet "Guide
to the Public Inquiry Terminals" available from the Library's
Information Desk. Ph: +61 52 471351.

NB Access can also be obtained by direct dial-in or by using
X.25, details of which are available separately.

To gain access:
0 Terminal setup: no specific terminal settings required. Terminals
already connected to AARNet should not be altered.
1. telnet library.deakin.oz.au

You may need to have already established a session on a
computer at your institution, which is connected to AARNet.
Alternatively, you may be able to establish a connection
directly from your terminal server. Consult your local
Computing Centre for further advice.

2. If the connection is successful, you will receive something similar
to:-

SunOS UNIX (sol.deakin.OZ.AU.)

login:

3. Type: alice Press:

4. The system will then indicate when ALICE was last used, display any
"messages of the day", and then try to determine the type of terminal
being used. If it cannot be determined automatically, the system will
prompt you for the device type.

TERM = (unknown)

Type: . Some terminal
types are:- tatung Tatung VT-4100 vt100 DEC VT-100 vt52 VT-52 v3
TV1-910,920 6310 hazeltine 6310 (other codes on request from the
Assistant Systems Librarian - [email protected])

Press:

(If you don't know the terminal type, simply press and the
system will attempt to provide a reasonable format).

5. The system will try to establish a connection to the Library's
computer. If the connection fails the system will respond with
"Remote is busy". The system will then break the connection with
your terminal, and you will need to restart from Step 1 to establish
a new connection.

If the connection is established, the system will respond
with:-

a) clearing the screen
b) give instructions for starting and nishing an ALICE
session i.e.

6. Type "Q" to start, ~. to end.

You can now start ALICE, and any subsequent commands will need
to be ALICE commands. Usually, the appropriate ALICE commands
are displayed at the bottom of the screen, but a user should
consult the above- mentioned Guide before any serious use of
the system.

To leave ALICE:
1. At any stage of a search within ALICE, you may leave it.

Press: [RETURN]
Type: ~. (i.e. tilde, dot) Press: [RETURN]

2. The system will immediately break the connection to the Library's

The University of New Brunswick
131.202.1.2

The University of New Brunswick is pleased to announce that our
online catalogue, known as PHOENIX, is now available over the
Internet. We believe that we are the first Canadian library to
make this capability available to off-campus users.

To access PHOENIX, TN3270 to unbmvs1.csd.unb.ca (131.202.1.2).
When the logon screen appears, TAB down to the "Application"
field and enter "netlib" (without quotation marks) followed by a
carriage return. The first PHOENIX screen will appear.

To disconnect, use your TN3270 software to drop the connection.
Or, from the PHOENIX command line, type Stop. A screen will
appear giving further directions. Note: you should know what
key is mapped to the CLEAR function. This will be different for
each software package but Ctrl-Home may work.

Access is restricted to three simultaneous users from the
Internet.

You will be logged out automatically after five minutes of
inactivity or if your session exceeds thirty minutes.

PHOENIX was a joint project by the library and UNB's Computing
Services Department. It was developed in the period 1979-1980.

PHOENIX searches can be done using either the Menu or Command
modes. Initially, the user is placed in the Command Mode but
can switch to Menu by typing Menu. Returning to Command
Mode is accomplished by pressing the Pf3 key.

Searching in Command is accomplished with the "s" command. Set
results are shown through the use of the display command. The
format is d set# format range. Typing d5l 1-5 would display
records 1-5 of set number 5 in the long format. Formats
available are (s)hort, (m)edium, (l)ong, (t)itle and x for
MARC.

Browsing of indexes is also possible in Command mode.

For more information use the online help facility or the online
lessons. E-mail enquiries may also be sent to [email protected]

PHOENIX consists of a number of databases. Most are full MARC
format. The major exception to this is ENLIST. This database is
maintained by the Engineering Library. Brief records are
provided for all Engineering Library books, theses, pamphlets,
microforms and some journal articles. In addition, some faculty
members and special libraries within Fredericton maintain their
collections using ENLIST. Browsing is not supported in ENLIST.

The University of New Brunswick is one of Canada's oldest
institutions of higher learning, with roots dating back to
1785. It offers degrees in administration, arts, computer
science, education, engineering, forestry, law, nursing,
physical education and science. The Harriet Irving Library and
the branches at Engineering, Education and Science and Forestry
have a number of strengths which may be of interest to Internet
users. We have a particularly strong collection in Canadian
Maritime Provincial history, including Loyalist history. (Not
all Loyalist materials are in PHOENIX. Send enquiries to
[email protected]) UNB is also a Canadian and New Brunswick
government documents repository. GovDocs enquiries may be sent
to [email protected]

The University also has a growing and vibrant campus in Saint
John. Their library is called the Ward Chipman Library and its
catalogue is searchable from PHOENIX by typing BEGIN WCL.
Science Fiction fans may be interested in viewing their strong
collection of this type of material.

University of Konstanz
POLYDOS.UNI-KONSTANZ.DE

POLYDOS.UNI-KONSTANZ.DE is the machine of Univ. Konstan'z
library, running KOALA, a proprietary online cataloging/database
software.

KOALA may be used to scan the library's inventory of about 1.4
million volumes (no journals yet) for a given volume, using
(combinations of) about a dozen different search criteria, such
as ISBN, ISSN, author's names, title etc.

The user interface is TTY-like and KEPT ENTIRELY IN GERMAN. It
features an online help system, and a rudimentary message
handling facility to contact the database managers.

KOALA can be reached via telnet to polydos.uni-konstanz.de
(134.34.3.5), on ***PORT 775***, during library opening hours
(8:00 to 21:30 local time on Mon to Fri, 9:00 to 19:00 local
time on Sat.).

There are a few technical limitations to using KOALA: - the
machine is quite slow (and suffers from overload) - the number
of KOALA sessions running in parallel is limited (currently to
9)
