Infotrieve Launches Redesigned Web Site, Announces New Partners

Infotrieve has unveiled significant enhancements to its article- and document-retrieval Web site (http://www.infotrieve.com). According to the press release, Infotrieve's online portal now provides access to more content, customizable searching, topic alerts, more powerful user-management tools, and a streamlined transaction process. Infotrieve has also announced agreements with EBSCO, H.W. Wilson, Swets Blackwell, and Ex Libris, Inc.

One click on the Infotrieve site takes customers to the e-CONTENT collection, a compendium of electronic journals from esteemed global publishers. Infotrieve plans to increase the e-CONTENT collection to approximately 3,000 journals by the end of this year. MEDLINE is also available in updated form on the site, as is PREMED, a database of MEDLINE articles in final peer-review. Infotrieve's pay-per-article service is enhanced by an improved Table of Contents (TOC) Browser, enabling customers to select and purchase journal articles without a subscription fee. This service provides access to over 27,000 journals.

The agreement with EBSCO Publishing (http://www.ebsco.com) will provide direct access to Infotrieve's document-delivery services via a deep link from within many of EBSCO's more than 80 online databases. Customers accessing EBSCOhost online databases can now purchase articles using Infotrieve's pay-per-view, complete-text (formatted text and graphics) delivery service. This link is set up at the discretion of individual subscribing libraries and is enabled only when the complete text is not available locally.

Similar agreements were announced with H.W. Wilson Co. (http://www.hwwilson.com) for access by Wilson customers, and with Swets Blackwell (http://www.swetsblackwell.com) for access through its Web-based access portal, SwetsnetNavigator (http://www.swetsnetnavigator.com). Infotrieve also announced an arrangement with Ex Libris, Inc. to provide access to Infotrieve's document-delivery services through links from Ex Libris' SFX context-sensitive linking software.
