Das kleine Datenbanken-Lexikon [Concise Database Lexicon] / Klaus Hoeck. - Düsseldorf : Verlag Wirtschaft und Finanzen, 1995. - 477 p. ; 18 cm. - ISBN 3-87881-091-1 : DM 52.00

This volume is part directory, part lexicon. It includes entries under the names of individual databases and groups of related ones. It also includes articles on relevant specialized topics (e.g., Internet, patent information) and basic concepts (e.g., databases, research). The author has obviously targeted management as his audience, and hopes to convince them of the importance of electronic information as well as to convey basic information. This book is not intended to compete with the well-known specialized directories, such as Handbuch der Wirtschaftsdatenbanken. Libraries will need these major directories and can probably do without this one. [sh/vh]
