About this title

From Library Journal:

This is the most complicated search interface to come along in a very long time. There are two command areas in the screen itself?List and Input?and an eight-button icon bar at the right, with mostly unfamiliar icons on it. In the "List" bar, the words "Essay Title" appear, and "Absolute Zero Temperature?The" is the first entry under Input. Upon going to the manual for help, the phrase "AND CompLex 3" appears in most explanations. The Overview on the first page reveals that AND CompLex 3 "is a sophisticated browser and search engine for compressed electronic books...." After spending an hour reading the manual, I figured out that the system has been arranged to show the 23 volumes (1,509 essays) from the printed Survey of Science, and the idea seems to be that users are going to look for this information by each essay's title. Not the way most are likely to try searching! Bottom Line: The search interface here is way too complicated. This disc is not recommended.
