The New Dow Jones Knowledge Professionals Alliance
by Paula J. Hane
The folks at Factiva have been busily working on a replacement community for the Factiva Information Professional Alliance. It is now called the Dow Jones Knowledge Professionals Alliance and made its debut at the recent SLA annual conference. It has an entirely revamped format with new content and an expanded audience. The InfoPro Alliance had been around since 1996, and admittedly had been in "hibernation mode," according to Anne Caputo, executive director, knowledge and learning programs at Dow Jones. Following a survey of its 3,000-plus members, the Factiva/Dow Jones team determined that people do not want another place to have a conversation. They are looking for a place to learn and share resources. So, the new tag line for the Knowledge Professionals Alliance is "Learn. Share. Thrive."

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.

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).
