Abstract

The Search Helper service was installed at Louisiana State University to introduce user online searching to the campus. This paper presents the microcomputer-based system in the public access mode and describes the preparations, procedures, and use developed and recorded during the first year of operation. A detailed analysis of a month-long free trial period is included, indicating user status, major area of study, and subjects searched.
