EBSCO Publishing Releases New Version of Collectanea Corporate DeskTop Library


EBSCO Publishing has announced the release of version 3.0 of its Collectanea Corporate DeskTop Library, saying that it now offers a more comprehensive and integrated way of searching for information across a variety of data sources for a fixed annual site license.

New features include integrated links to related topics, Internet business sites, and The Library of Congress. In addition, information from Dun & Bradstreet on 75,000 companies has been added to Collectanea's Company Directory. Thousands of links to reviewed Web sites, compound documents, and online help also are available.

"The new functionality of version 3.0 provides users with a broader range of search capabilities in one easy-to-use package, eliminating many time-consuming steps in the research process," said Steven Caldwell, vice president and general manager of Collectanea. "With this product, users can conduct integrated searches across more than 3,000 periodical titles, 60,000 subject headings, 75,000 companies, and thousands of reviewed sites on the Web. The new options allow for retrieval of a greater breadth of information, ranked by relevancy and organized into a user-friendly format, ultimately making searches faster, simpler, and more applicable for users."

Organized by a new subject directory, an articles archive, and an expanded company directory, version 3.0 allows users to search for company information from the search screen or from within the text of an article or abstract. The subject directory expands users' search capabilities by enabling them to search for articles using Library of Congress subject headings. Each search isolates the appropriate heading and displays it on a subject profile page. Users can then expand or link their search for articles about the same subject to Collectanea's article archive, access term definitions and Web-related information, or link directly to a related URL. A newly added feature, "Find Related Articles," also returns documents with the same subject heading as the selected article. Compound documents--or links to graphics, illustrations, or pictures--are available for selected articles as well.

The addition of report options within the company directory gives users access to a broad range of specific information on 75,000 companies. Menu options include contact, marketing, and relationship reports. For example, users looking for company details could choose a marketing report and receive such data as 30 executive names, corporate parent, total employees, employment growth, sales information, and more for under $4 per report, according to the company. …
