Turning Data into Better Decisions With Endeca Latitude 2
by Theresa Cramer
Business intelligence: At times, the phrase has seemed like an oxymoron. The task of identifying, extracting, and analyzing business data has never been easy, and every day it seems to get more complicated with the addition of new sources of unstructured content. With its latest announcement today, June 13, Endeca Technologies, Inc., aims to make business intelligence (BI) more agile with Endeca Latitude 2, the latest major release of the company's enterprise agile business intelligence platform.

Weekly News Digests
Speech-Indexed Multimedia in Scientific Search Portals
The DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) announced a new tool in scientific discovery technology. Now citizens and researchers can search for both written and spoken words in an entire range of media using OSTI's new, speech-indexed multimedia within large scientific search portals. To this point, online searches for scientific information have been limited to text, such as within scientific papers. The new development uses unique speech-recognition search technology in combination with OSTI's two federated search portals, ScienceAcceleator.gov and WorldWideScience.org, which search a range of DOE and worldwide databases, respectively. This vastly extends the reach of federated searching and could lead to new connections and new breakthroughs.
ebrary Announces New Corporate Computing Ebook Collection
ebrary announced the availability of its new Corporate Computing subscription database. The collection features more than 210 titles in Certification & Compliance, Databases, Software Engineering, Internet & Web Development, and other subject areas from Wiley, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, and other leading publishers. The selection, which is also available for purchase, may be previewed by visiting http://corptitles.ebrary.com and clicking on Corporate Computing.
The New Physical Archive of the Internet Archive
Internet Archive announced it is building a physical archive for the long-term preservation of one copy of every book, record, and movie it is able to attract or acquire. Because it expects day-to-day access to these materials to occur through digital means, the physical archive is designed for long-term preservation of materials with only occasional, collection-scale retrieval. Because of this, it can create optimized environments for physical preservation and organizational structures that facilitate appropriate access. A seed bank might be conceptually closest to what it has in mind: storing important objects in safe ways to be used for redundancy, authority, and in case of catastrophe.

Sources for Free Ebooks and Ereader Software
by Paula J. Hane
In late May, BookExpo America week kicked off with IDPF's annual Digital Book 2011 conference. Judging from the product announcements and buzz from the events, ebooks are hot, hot, hot! Kobo, which partners with Borders, announced that its new $130 E-ink touchscreen reading device would be available in June. Barnes & Noble announced a $139 black-and-white E-Ink touchscreen e-reader. Amazon dropped the price of its $189 3G Kindle with Special Offers to $164. Amazon also reportedly told U.S. publishers that it will begin accepting files in EPUB format in the near future, and these files will be readable on the Kindle. With the acceleration of sales of ebook readers and so much interest in ebooks, it seems as if it's a good time to look at good sources to get free ebooks. I will also discuss free ereader software as an alternative to buying dedicated devices.
