Abstract

Describes how the reference service provided by the Rod Library Information File has recently been enhanced by the creation of a World Wide Web extension of this vertical file. Like the Information File, the WWW Info File provides Rod Library patrons with subject access to Iowa, corporate, and general information. States that benefits and pitfalls of developing and maintaining this additional system are many and argues that though a final verdict on this system has yet to be pronounced, this and other efforts at vertical file automation may herald renewed interest in this backwater of library and information research. © 1997, MCB UP Limited
