OECD iLibrary Officially Launched as Rebuilt Website
by Barbara Quint
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has had a website for identifying and distributing its own and other agency publications since the beginning of the century. Until recently, the site was named SourceOECD, but over the last 4 or 5 years, according to Toby Green, head of publishing, the OECD has been working with Publishing Technology (formed in 2007 with the merger of Ingenta, VISTA, and Publishers Communication Group (PCG)) to redesign its site and many internal functions as well. The result is OECD iLibrary. In the course of investigating this development, probably my most interesting discovery had nothing to do with the newness of the site. Instead, it was the discovery of how many countries the data covered outside the 33 developed country members of OECD itself.

ProQuest Digitizes Formerly Secret Korean Documents for Researchers
ProQuest has digitized a National Security Archive collection on U.S.-Korean relations, expanding the Digital National Security Archives (DNSA) database series. The United States and the Two Koreas: 1969-2000 covers diplomatic, security, and economic relations between the U.S. and its ally, South Korea, as well as challenges to the U.S. posed by an adversarial North Korea. Spanning events dating from the Nixon administration's response to the April 15, 1969 downing of a U.S. reconnaissance plane by North Korea to efforts during the Clinton years to deter Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions, The United States and the Two Koreas collection enables researchers to easily search and access these documents via libraries.

Free Collaborative Learning Tools for Science—Spotlight on Scitable
by Paula J. Hane
As Scott Merrill wrote on CrunchGear, "Social networks are a dime a dozen." He pointed out that many fail and many are just for specific niche audiences (though I don't think niches are a bad thing). So, he was as skeptical as I was about Scitable, a social network for science research and education from Nature Publishing Group, publishers of Nature and Scientific American. I was especially leery given the recent turmoil over licensing discussions between NPG and the University of California. (They recently issued a joint statement agreeing to work together to address the "mutual short- and long-term challenges.") Scitable is an educational website offered by Nature Education (a division of NPG) for biology and genetics educators and undergraduate students, and it provides a free library of high-quality, vetted content and tools. The company just announced the launch of the mobile version of Scitable.
