dc.description.abstractCAB International has created specialty subsets of its CAB Abstracts database for release as new SPECTRUM CD-ROM products. Two of these bibliographic products cover all of veterinary sciences and agricultural animal sciences. VETCD contains all the bibliographic records in Index Veterinarius, including those from Veterinary Bulletin, and select records from four other CAB abstracting journals. BEASTCD includes the records from Animal Breeding Abstracts, Nutrition Abstracts and Review Series B, and Dairy Science Abstracts, as well as selected records from two other CAB abstracting journals. The objective of the apportioning of the CAB Abstracts database into specialized subfiles is to produce CD-ROM products that contain all of the CAB Abstracts literature (1973-present) that specifically address the infomratio9n needs of targeted user groups. An objective appraisal of these two SPECTRUM CDs is reported, based on a descriptive and an evaluative study, which compares and contrasts the two CDà à à à à à à à à ¢ s with each other and with the full CAB CD-ROM and online files. Comparisons include the elements of organization, completeness of subject coverage, overlap and timeliness.en_US
