The Universal DYABOLA User Manual is fundamental for all Dyabola
users. Beginners are advised to follow the examples in one of the
introductory project-specific manuals. The
Short Reference Card is especially
designed for more experienced users of the CD-ROM version. Manuals
for data input and administration are not online for copyright
reasons. They can be ordered directly by each projects head of staff.
All online manuals are available in two formats HTML and PDF. The
PDF version is recommended for printing, but maybe you'll need to
install Acrobat-Reader 4.0
or higher therefore.
They are designed to give a fast and complete access to the full
funktionality of each DYABOLA database project. The introductions
available are based on the CD-ROM version, but it is recommended
to have a look into the project-specific instruction, even if you
are going to use the web version only.
The Reference Card contains a short description of the program functions,
key combinations and a navigation diagram (User Manual Chapter
5.1). It is only available in PDF. The Card should be printed.
Online display makes no use, because of the small formatting. For
the advanced DYABOLA-User the card helps remembering important tasks
and functions. Regards go to Jean
Susorney Wellington. The Reference Card ready for download here
is based on the DYABOLA-Reference-Card she in order to help other
librarians (last update 11.3.1999).

Consulting and Services:
Project Consulting can differ from database to database, depending
on needs and budget of the project. The range of possible services
reaches from providing the input program and solution of database
structure issues to the planning of the workflow or the creation
of manuals. Beside this, we provide workshops and support concerning
imaging, data import/export as well as data maintenance.
Download: Lucida Console for Window Mode:
Here you find a modified windows system font Lucida Console for
fixing some display issues when running Dyabola in window mode (instead
full-screen). The download file contains the original font also,
so it is possible to undo the changes. You'll find a complete installation
instruction in our Universal DYABOLA User Manual in Chapter
2.3 under "strange characters"
