TDNET Free Web 2.0 Search Engine for Library, Business, Information, Government
NEW YORK-West Chester, PA (RPRN) 01/12/10 – TDNet Inc., a leading provider of e-resource access and management services for corporate libraries, universities, information centers, education, business, consumer and government research, recently announced the availability of TooLIP (Tool for Librarians and Information Professionals), a unique Web 2.0 search engine software portal designed especially for librarians and information professionals.
Powered by TDNet’s powerful Searcher Analyzer federated search software, TooLIP allows the user from New York, London, Los Angeles and Toronto to Paris, Moscow, Tokyo and Beijing to locate material in relevant Open Access blogs, discussion lists, e-journals and search engines with a single search. Access to TooLIP is free of charge at http://toolip.tdnet.com.
TooLIP users can take advantage of the sophisticated personalization features of the Searcher Analyzer software. Internet Web 2.0, social networking search results can be added to personal lists, exported or e-mailed to colleagues. Users can also access their online search history.
Attendees can register for TooLIP at the TDNet Booth #1445 at ALA Midwinter in Boston. In addition, librarians are encouraged to take a first look at TERMS, TDNet’s new core ERM system, which is integrated with other TDNet services and is also offered as a stand-alone product.
“We are very pleased to offer this useful Web 2.0 search tool to the library and information community,” said Asher Sofrin, CEO of TDNet Inc.
“TooLIP is an outstanding application of our sophisticated Searcher Analyzer software. In the near future, we will be adding even more features and information to this portal for the information professional.”
The Searcher Analyzer platform goes beyond ordinary federated searching by providing real-time text analysis as well as metadata tagging and abstracting. While most federated search systems can display a large number of random search results, Searcher Analyzer dramatically improves the user’s experience by clustering retrieved items into concepts and displaying only the most relevant results.
Searcher Analyzer features advanced personal profiling and alerting services that can be customized to meet the specific requirements of academic libraries, consortia, medical, corporate and government information centers. For an organization, the system connects to external databases as well as to internal repositories, and fully integrates with all ILS and various enterprise portals such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS).
Libraries can achieve a complete ERM solution by integrating with other e-Resource Management tools from the TDNet suite of services, including TOUResolver, Journal Manager, eBook Manager, eTOCs and Document Delivery linking.
TDNet develops and markets advanced solutions for institutional management and access of external and internal electronic resources.
