Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Cheshire II online catalog system was designed to provide a bridge between the realms of purely bibliographical information and the rapidly expanding full-text and multimedia collections available online. It is based on a number of national and international standards for data description, communication, and interface technology. The system uses a client-server architecture with X window client communication with an SGML-based probabilistic search engine using the Z39.50 information retrieval protocol.
