WilsonWeb Now Features Full Text, Adobe PDF Page Images

H.W. Wilson ( has announced that more than 1,700 of its 5,100 indexed-and-abstracted periodicals are now featured in full text in the company's databases. In addition, full-text articles on WilsonWeb are now accompanied by Adobe PDF page images, making charts, graphs, photos, and illustrations readily available to researchers. According to a company representative, the PDF images are produced in-house but the HTML full text is produced for Wilson by Pacific Data.

"We're working to ensure that the full-text content our databases bring into libraries reflects the most trusted and sought-after sources in all areas of research," said Ron Miller, H.W. Wilson's director of product management. "The full text of periodicals—complete with page images—expands the resources available in subscribing libraries. We've also expanded search options. With the new WilsonWeb, users can link to full text residing on any of their library's databases that are open-URL compliant. This [is] thanks to WilsonLink SFX-powered software."

WilsonWeb has been completely redesigned to incorporate advanced technology, a completely new user-friendly interface, a powerful search engine (from Verity), and a variety of customization options. The new WilsonWeb service is expected to be available for free trials in mid-August. Databases will be automatically available for current WilsonWeb subscribers.
