Real time search results

Posted by gotgenes on 05 Dec 2008 at 00:39 GMT

In the article, the authors state, "Most [libraries] permit Boolean searches on the basis of authors, keywords, words in a title or abstract, and so on, though none does this in real-time, and comparatively few allow sophisticated combinations."

This statement isn't quite true. DBLP's CompleteSearch (http://dblp.mpi-inf.mpg.d...) does do real time searching, though not sophisticated real-time searching.
