1. Database development and review provide common reference points and save individual researchers the task of reviewing the primary literature. In addition, substantial benefits will accrue from new, electronic database technologies: searchability and compatibility with plotting and analysis software, not to mention compact storage of previously unwieldy amounts of data. There is little doubt that the electronic availability of a wide range of spectral data would stimulate the development of new diagnostic techniques and the wider application of existing methods.
