Kavi, Pradeep P and Jayakanth, Francis (2001) Tool for Identification of Duplicate Records Downloaded from Multiple Cd-Roms. A Case Study with Spirs Based Databases. In: SRELS Journal of Information Management, 38 (4).Full text not available from this repository.
As research becomes more and more interdisciplinary, literature search from CD-ROM databases is often carried out on more than one CD-ROM database. This results in retrieving duplicate records due to same literature being covered (indexed) in more than one database. The retrieval software does not identify such duplicate records. Three different programs have been written to accomplish the task of identifying the duplicate records. These programs are executed from a shell script to minimize manual intervention. The various fields that have been used (extracted) to identify the duplicate records include the article title, year, volume number, issue number and pagination. The shell script when executed prompts for input file that may contain duplicate records. The programs identify the duplicate records and write them to a new file.
