A Z39.50-compatible local system can access FirstSearch so users can search FirstSearch databases using the local system's procedures and commands. Implementation steps and effort vary by local system. Some software development and related costs may be required to adapt your local system to operate as a Z39.50 client.
Other Z39.50 client software, such as some personal bibliographic software, can also use Z39.50 access to FirstSearch.
More information about Z39.50 access to FirstSearch is available in the FirstSearch Z39.50 access.
