Infotrieve Debuts Virtual Library Platform

Infotrieve ( has announced the debut of its Virtual Library platform, a system of locating, selecting, and purchasing published literature in a customized and co-branded environment. Operating as a free-to-search, pay-per-article system, the Virtual Library platform is designed to deliver significant time and cost benefits to customers. This platform will showcase two of Infotrieve's latest offerings, the free search tool Article Finder and the e-journal collection, a roster of over 500 electronic publications with pay-per-article selection. Both are due for full release in the first quarter of next year.

The Virtual Library platform is aimed at the corporate and academic library markets. According to a company representative, implementation is free to libraries and takes from 2 hours to 2 days for Infotrieve's IT department to set up. The company already claims over 50 implementations, including the libraries of California State University.

Known as "The Article Store," Infotrieve has assembled a library of article and journal content, a collection that's constantly expanding through the company's ongoing partnerships and alliances with publishers and content producers. With the Virtual Library, Infotrieve proactively makes this information a customizable asset for researchers and information professionals, while retaining intellectual property protection for publishers.

The Virtual Library offers a free, user account-management system; a personalization engine to customize visuals and search parameters; a free Table of Contents Alert Service to select articles from customer-preferred journals; the upcoming Article Finder, a bibliographic database containing over 22 million citations and over 10 million abstracts from more than 35,000 scholarly journals; and a fast-growing e-journal collection on a pay-per-article basis that's expected to reach several thousand journals next year.
