Abstract

There are now several time sharing search systems available to the home computer user. These systems provide to home subscribers access to online information, news stories, bibliographic databases, and many other services. Because some of the systems require start-up fees or charge monthly minimums and because the specific characteristics and offerings vary, it makes sense to examine each system and make choices among them.

The five services I will describe and compare are:

1. KNOWLEDGE INDEX, DIALOG Information Services, Inc.

2. BRS/AFTER DARK, BRS

3. THE SOURCE, Source Telecomputing Corporation

4. COMPUSERVE

5. DELPHI, General Videotex Corporation
