no edit summary
Commenting out the "Chemistry Databases & Search Engines" because it is talking specifically about CAS/SciFinder, and it should be made more broad. Some of this info may be other places, so it will be rewritten to reflect that as well.
→Bibliographic versus Non-Bibliographic: Deleted reference to Scirus - has been discontinued.
→Types of Electronic Information Sources: Costs & Benefits section will be incorporated here in the future.
→Costs and Benefits of Online Searching: Going to move this section somewhere else. Deleted STN/ChemAbs statement.
