OCLC Research Launches Searchable Repository
"Built using OCLC services, the new repository contains descriptions of OCLC Research projects, activities and programs that were originally published by OCLC or in peer-reviewed scholarly journals. The metadata records may be harvested as an OAI file and are available for searching on the OCLC Research Web site. In addition, the records also are in WorldCat and are searchable in FirstSearch and search engines participating in OCLC's Open WorldCat Program. Links to full text are available wherever permitted by the copyright holder." An advanced search interface is also available.

Information Retrieval
Source: Transform
Turn Search Into Find
A look at self-service search. A sidebar titled, "Behind the Jargon: Five Approaches to Classification" is also available. Sad to report no mention of info professionals in the article. It's a shame since many of the skills we can provide are completely applicable to assisting an organization implementing this type of technology. Oh well, that's the way it goes.

Science Journals

CAS Science Spotlight
From press release: "Recording how often a journal's contents are cited in scientific literature has long been the conventional way of measuring the importance of specific publications and even of the authors themselves. However, the widespread availability of electronic journals on the Web has enabled CAS to provide a new measurement - a tally of researchers' actual requests (Real-Time Document Requests) for full-text articles transmitted via CAS search services. The latest rankings are now available on the Web, free of charge, through CAS Science Spotlight...." Also available: Most Intriguing Documents (in the opinion of CAS scientists/analysts).

All My CDs! Public Library Association President Clara N. Bohrer responds to national CD settlement, distribution to public libraries
From the statement, "While library staff nationwide will work to catalog and circulate the CDs received that meet the needs of their local residents, we call on the music industry to send the educational CDs and best-selling music - not remainders that cannot be displayed in libraries - that our millions of library users want to find in their libraries."
