SpringerLink Expanding Ebook Collection to Cover All Titles Dating From 1846
by Barbara Quint
In 1842, Julius Springer opened a bookshop in Berlin. Four years later, he published a book. The company he founded, Springer, is now one of the world's largest sci-tech publishers. Since the 1980s, book production has accelerated, now averaging about 7,000 books a year. The SpringerLink service to libraries now carries more than 48,000 ebooks. Since 2005, all new Springer books have been available as ebooks. After completion of the just announced Springer Book Archives (SBA) digitization project, that number should grow to more than 100,000. Digitizing all the books ever published by Springer or its imprints is the goal.

Mine the Web Like a Journalist
by Paula J. Hane
I recently had the opportunity to sit in on two webinars aimed at journalists. One was sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism, titled "Beyond Google: Mining the Web for Company Intelligence." The other was a "LinkedIn for Journalists" training session, which is offered frequently by Krista Canfield, senior manager of corporate communications at LinkedIn. Both proved to be well worth my time. I thought I might share some of the best suggestions I picked up that are applicable for many researchers, journalists or not.
