Review a Recent Presentation and then Do Some Searching with Scitopia.org

SciTopia is a new (beta) federated search tool with content coming from 15 scholarly organizations. We first posted about it in April.

This presentation (PDF) from IEEE's Karen Hawkins offers a preview and background. The presentation was given earlier this month at the SLA Annual Conference. Scitopia's slogan is:
Integrating Trusted Science + Technology Research.

Ready to give it a whirl? Head to Scitopia.org and run a few searches. Remember, it's a beta release. Btw, the search technology comes from Deep Web Technologies. Their tech also powers Science.gov. Expect to read a full review about Scitopia in the next few weeks.

    Thursday, 24th July 2014

    Information assets are in the hands of the right people to safeguard them but the wrong people to manage their exploitation concludes an influential new study. As reports continue to emerge of apparent corporate paralysis in the face of cyber security threats, Tim Buckley Owen wonders whether the emphasis hasn't swung too far in that direction, and sees opportunities for information professionals in helping to strike a balance between security in the cloud and effective data analysis for competitive advantage.
