A New Review of Scirus from Peter Jacso

In the second December 2006 review posted on Peter's Digital Reference Shelf, librarian and legendary reference reviewer, Dr. Peter Jacso, offers an updated review of Scirus.

He writes:

Scirus has come a long way since my first review in 2001 on its debut. It grew from a 50-million item search engine to a 300-million item database with increasingly significant and expansive coverage of scholarly sources and powerful software. The enhancements in its content and software made it a pick a few years ago for the Peter’s Databases Picks and Pans column and the winner of several awards in the specialty search engine categories for good reasons.
