Ephemera from UVa Library’s computing past
From an early pamphlet advertising a bibliographic database, found among the ephemera saved at the University of Virginia Libraries:
“Why use a computer search? Consider the time it takes to search manually through the many issues of printed indexes. The computer searches these indexes in seconds; the search is faster, more comprehensive, and often more precise, as there are more subject access points and greater flexibility in combining terms in a computer search.”
