Elsevier Acquires Quosa: What Does This Mean?
by Cindy Shamel
Here is the headline from Elsevier's press release: "Elsevier acquires QUOSA, provider of life sciences content management and work flow productivity solutions." At first glance, that's a pretty jargon-heavy statement, but in a nutshell, Elsevier sits on an abundance of content while QUOSA has developed software to help manage content. It seems like a good match, but where the company will go with it remains a bit hazy at this point. It appears that the two companies intend to combine the technical innovations developed at QUOSA with the financial backing and content collections at Elsevier to improve literature management capabilities for the user.

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).
