Browser's Choice: A Comparative Use Study of Traditional and Electronic Vertical Files
Information technology, Internet, Librarians
Reference Services Review
The utility and viability of print vertical files often has been questioned in the literature. Recently, alternatives or supplements to the print vertical file have been proposed and implemented in the form of an electronic or World Wide Web vertical file. The use and maintenance of a print vertical file and the newly created World Wide Web version of this vertical file were studied during the 1997 summer and fall semesters at the University of Northern Iowa. As Neuhaus shows in this article, results indicate that a WWW vertical file is both more popular and easier to maintain than a traditional print vertical file. © 1998, MCB UP Limited
