Project Muse is a leading provider of digital scholarship in the humanities and social sciences serving millions of users through its subscription arrangements with some 2,500 libraries. Muse will add more than 12,000 ebooks to the 490 journals in its electronic collection. The launch of the new service will take place on Jan. 1, 2012. Until the end of 2011, Project Muse invites people to try out its new platform integrating searching for both content formats at a beta site. The beta site carries more than 300 ebooks from 27 publishers, plus all the Muse journals.

Inmagic’s New Idea Management System for Collaborative Innovation
by Paula J. Hane
Idea management systems are one way to approach innovation and product development. They provide a structured and disciplined approach for managing idea generation, capture, collaboration, assessment, implementation, and outcome monitoring. In 2010, Gartner's Emerging Tech Hype Cycle put the technology as being 2-5 years from mainstream adoption. I hadn't really paid much attention to this category until the recent announcement by Inmagic of IdeaNet, its "next-generation innovation application," powered by Inmagic Presto.
