"Dialog Delivers More Data and Features"
From an Information Today NewsBreak from Marydee Ojala:
The February 2011 release of the new platform considerably expands its capabilities. Searches can now be conducted in 69 databases, containing 200 million documents, across nine subject areas: Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Chemistry, Energy & Environment, Engineering & Technology, Food & Agriculture, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical & Biomedical, and Telecommunications & Computing. I find the subject areas reminiscent of Dialog’s OneSearch categories. Free trials of the new platform may not allow access to all 69 files, but the full list of databases is at the ProQuest Dialog site. Although ProQuest Dialog’s focus is on migrating the scientific, technical, and medical databases to the new platform before the business and social sciences, the February release includes British Education Index, ERIC, PROMT, PsycINFO, and Social SciSearch.
