Inmagic Announces Web Content Cataloging

Inmagic, Inc. (, a developer of knowledge management and special library software, has announced that its customers can now catalog Web content directly into its DB/TextWorks text-oriented database product. Knowledge professionals now have the ability to use DB/TextWorks version 5.1, Inmagic's database product, in conjunction with Inmagic.NET, its Web content integration technology (found within DB/TextWorks), as a long-term solution to Web content management.

"Since December 2000, Inmagic.NET has been allowing information professionals to speed acquisitions work flow by purchasing information directly from the Web and then downloading catalog data directly into DB/TextWorks," said Gerry Brown, Inmagic.NET's vice president of business development. "Now, with Web content cataloging, information professionals can catalog key Web pages and map them into their DB/TextWorks database."

Web cataloging is accomplished directly from the Inmagic.NET menu item found on the DB/TextWorks menu bar. By first opening an Inmagic textbase (Inmagic's term for database) and then clicking on the Inmagic.NET menu item, knowledge professionals can surf the Web, highlight text on a Web page, and drop it into a field for the record referencing that page. "What we've enabled is a way for knowledge managers to easily incorporate links to outside information resources into the knowledge base," said Phil Green, Inmagic's president and CEO. "Now knowledge managers have the ability to make both external and internal knowledge resources searchable together."

In other news, Inmagic announced that DB/Text WebPublisher 5.1 complies with U.S. government mandates in regards to the Americans With Disabilities Act. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, 29 U.S.C. ß 794d, as amended, states that software be accessible to people with disabilities. According to the company, version 5.1 of DB/Text WebPublisher meets these requirements.
