The use of the computer in medicine has been increasing rapidly. Despite this growing use of them, however, they have yet to assume a major role in assisting the physician. The purpose of this article, using dBASE ll, is to assist an anesthesiologist by rapid search of his(her) own references in preparing educational material or do research and so on. This software was written to be an efficient alternative to the conventional manual searching and to provide the following features: 1) personnel unfamiliar with computer technology could achieve satisfactory results. 2) rapid data entry of raw data with conventional keystrokes. 3) extensive data editing and manupulation capabilities. 4) entering each data typed by user was indexed alphabetically in sequence of authors' name. 5) easy search of data through the authors name, title, keyword and identifying of them in CRT displays or printer. Using a microcomputer for data processing had several advantages over a conventional manual method.: 1) less time required to retrieve information. 2) visual presentation of data was facilitated. 3) data were more readily obtainable. But the major disadvantage of a computerized system were the initial time consumed during the input of the data.
