Your Dialog Stories
Librarians and information professionals shared their Dialog stories with us at SLA in June
Cindy Hill and Peter Moon learned about Dialog during library school. Cindy shares how exhilarated she was to learn how to get information from a giant database. Peter comments on the comfort he got from using Dialog databases in the corporate environment. They both still remember their first encounter with Boolean logic and Venn diagrams.
Marydee Ojala recounts her experience in a Dialog training class she took in 1977 after graduating from library school. Unlike online training today, she went to the Palo Alto, CA offices for a day and a half training session. She comments on her first encounter with Roger Summit, who "popped in" to see how the class was going.
Carla Owen remembers her first Dialog experience in library school at Indiana University in 1980. She reminisces about the early "coupler" technology she used to search Dialog. Carla recalls her excitement when she realized the information she could obtain using Dialog. "It was magic," she says, "and it still is!"
