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.

Short Reference Card:
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).
