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.

Kno Introduces Kno Me Personal Study Dashboard
Kno, Inc., a provider of education software, launched Kno Me, a personal study dashboard that helps students measure their engagement with each Kno eTextbook they use. Students can check in frequently to see near-real-time stats on their study behavior, interaction levels, time management, and personal progress. And with Kno Me social sharing, students can opt in to share their results with peers and even follow the engagement levels of other classmates (perhaps the best student in the class). Students decide what they will share.

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.
