Bloomberg to Bloom in Washington
by Peggy Garvin
Last year, Silicon Valley came to Washington. Firms including Google and Adobe expanded their D.C. presence, and O'Reilly Media jumped on the Gov 2.0 bandwagon with a series of conferences. Next year, Wall Street comes to Washington. Bloomberg LP, the financial news powerhouse, is preparing to launch Bloomberg Government on Jan. 1, 2011. As with the recently launched Bloomberg Law, Bloomberg Government is a web-based subscription service that can be accessed from your own laptop, no proprietary Bloomberg terminal necessary. Also as with Bloomberg Law, Bloomberg Government charges a fixed monthly fee for unlimited usage. Subscriptions are $475 per month, adding up to $5,700 annually. Bloomberg is offering 45-day free trials prior to the launch date.

Getting the Complete Picture With Attivio’s Active Dashboards
by Paula J. Hane
There are a few technologies for which I'm particularly grateful as an online information professional: embedded links, faceted search, and dashboards. All of them are designed to make a researcher's life easier, getting to the right information faster and easier. None of these are new tools, but I want to reflect on the growing importance of dashboards as a user interface in the information management field today. A dashboard pulls information from diverse sources and presents it in an interface designed to be easy to read, similar to an automobile's dashboard. The key difference is that users can interact with the information. The interactive nature of a dashboard lets a user move quickly from a summary view to drill down to various levels of detail and usually in easy-to-comprehend visuals and graphics. And that is just what Attivio offers with its Active Dashboard but with another key difference. The system is indeed "active." You don't have to search for information—the system pushes it to you. And, as you click on a piece of information in a window, other windows on the dashboard are automatically updated.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
