Responsive Database Services Launches BUSINESS & INDUSTRY on the Web


Responsive Database Services, Inc. (RDS) recently announced that it has launched Internet access to its B&I Database. BUSINESS & INDUSTRY on the Web is now available at http://www. bidb.com.

Output displays include B&I's unique enhanced titles, which give informative summaries for easy selection. It is available at annual subscription pricing based on the number of simultaneous users.

According to RDS president Dick Harris, "We are giving the business information user community the results that they want with an easy-to-use system, with convenience, and at a fair and predictable price." RDS provides coverage of all industries with over 340,000 records a year. B&I on the Web has more than 60 percent full text, 50 percent U.S. content and 50 percent international, and intuitive indexing that enables users to find what they need through pop-up options that quickly display ready-made keywords.

In the college and public library environment, students, staff, and other patrons now have this important new database available in the interface they prefer.

Administrators will now have IP domain linking available for passwordfree access at annual subscription pricing, which includes unlimited searching and printing, pricing based on the number of simultaneous users, and no training necessary. …
