Petroleum Abstracts Services
In addition to documents covered by Petroleum Abstracts, PADDS has access to the vast holdings of The University of Tulsa's McFarlin Library. With over 35 years of experience serving the petroleum industry, PADDS can meet all your document delivery needs.
As a current-awareness service, PADDS will deliver tables of contents for most journals listed in the List of Publications Reviewed for an annual fee. Clients may then use their contents pages to select those articles they wish to order from PADDS. Table of contents delivery is available by email, mail or fax. Please contact PADDS for a price quote and to request this service.
PASS provides custom literature searches of the TULSA database on a fee basis. Search results consist of bibliographic citations with abstracts. TULSA search fees are based on each 1/2-hour of the searcher's time plus retrieval charges.
Benefits of PASS support include E&P-experienced online searching; toll-free, 800-number call-in; quick turnaround; and professional presentation of results.
PA conducts one-day workshop sessions to explain the controlled vocabulary used to index the TULSA database, and to teach effective search methods. Specific examples of appropriate use of the controlled vocabulary and more sophisticated search techniques also are included.
By special arrangement, PA will present the workshops at a site chosen by the customer on an expense-incurred basis. Training workshops may be limited to 15 participants depending on the complexity of training requested.
All training sessions require preregistration and payment of appropriate fees. Sessions scheduled by PA are subject to cancellation due to low registration.
