STN Version One: New Searching Platform Under Development
by Robert E. Buntrock
A recent press release from Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and FIZ Karlsruhe announced Version One of the new STN platform for searching STN. The new web-based search platform has been released in beta to STN's fixed fee customers with rollout anticipated eventually to all STN customers. The press release suggests that the content currently available is Chemical Abstracts and Derwent files. It offers one very favorable testimonial from one beta-tester. STN has offered a command-driven search platform for patent searchers and information professionals for about 3 decades and is distinct from SciFinder, CAS's end-user chemistry research tool, an alternative to STN. Fixed-fee service and pricing of STN usage is an option for any customer, especially those with predictable searching needs.

Review of 2012 and Trends Watch 2013
by Paula J. Hane
2012 was quite an intense and turbulent year—wilder weather, the London Olympics (and a gymnastics gold for Gabby Douglas), the contentious U.S. Presidential election, Facebook's disastrous IPO, the iPhone 5, the iPad Mini, patent lawsuits, and, as we neared the end of 2012, the "Fiscal Cliff." And drat, that was too close for comfort. Over the past year, the most-read news article on the infotoday.com site was my NewsLink Spotlight article posted Dec. 3, 2012, "The Fight for a Free and Open Internet." It clearly touched a nerve.

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).
