Online Tools: New “Semantic Bookmarklet For Researchers, Students and Librarians”
Here’s info about a new web tool, a bookmarklet to be specific, we thought some of you might be interested in learning about and using. It’s free. The developers would appreciate any feedback you might have. We plan to give it a trial soon.
Thanks to LIBER (Association for European Research Libraries) for alerting us to it.
Researchers, students, and librarians working in the fields of life and biomedical science are invited to test and give feedback on a new tool designed to help read scientific literature more easily and efficiently.
The tool is a semantic Bookmarklet (currently in beta form) developed by AQnowledge. It can identify entities of significance in scientific text in website pages and provide links to further information, including laboratory resources.
AQnowledge has also created a scientific PDF reader that performs a similar role.
