Dialog: Ways of Accessing Dialog


Dialog can be accessed via telnet or the Web, and there are multiple Web interfaces. We are, though, going to focus on DialogWeb and DialogClassic, as these are, generally, the most used and preferred interfaces to the Dialog databases.

Via Telnet

Via World Wide Web - DialogWeb Guided & DialogClassic Command Searching

Connecting to DialogWeb

Connecting to DialogClassic (essentially a Web interface to the text-based Telnet version)

Other Interfaces

Dialog offers several interfaces to its databases, but I want you to use DialogWeb or DialogClassic, as these are provide the most comprehensive access and, particularly in the case of DialogClassic, the maximum control over your searching.
