"Academic search enables you to search for peer reviewed journal articles contained in journal publisher portals and on the web in locations like Citeseer.
Academic search works with libraries and institutions to search and provide access to subscription content for their members. Access restricted resources include subscription services or premium peer-reviewed journals. You may be able to access restricted content through your library or institution."
Although I think it's neat that the search tool scours journal publisher portals for articles that they published for free, what really intrigues me is the second part...
Could Academic Live be used as a replacement one day for our federated OneSearch tool? Hmmm... I really need to look into this more.
Anyway, check out the For Librarians page and if anyone on the PLCMC staff is interested in looking into this more and figuring out if there is anyway this new development could benefit us, please contact me.
