IEEE Announces New Initiatives at Special Libraries Association Conference Presentation Now Available Online

June 2004 The IEEE announced several new initiatives in its online publishing program this month during a breakfast for the library community at the Special Libraries Association annual conference in Nashville.

The announcements made during the meeting include the launch of two new IEEE journals in 2005, a flexible new online collection designed for corporations, plans to grow IEEE's archival digital content and forthcoming updates to the IEEE Xplore online delivery platform.

Jonathan Dahl, Staff Director of IEEE Sales & Marketing, explained how IEEE measures the quality of its collections to the librarians in attendance. Beyond the traditional elements of price and citations, a statistical study reveals that patents are citing scientific information more than ever before, and that top patenting organizations cite IEEE more frequently than competitor's journals. To support the study, Dahl cited Qualcom's Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology as a high-impact, patent that relied on IEEE publications for patent approval.

In addition, Barbara Lange, Director of IEEE Publications Business Development, reviewed several recently launched enhancements to the IEEE Xplore platform. Improved navigation features, among other enhancements, help to meet the varied needs of researchers. She also presented a preview of the enhancements planned for next year's IEEE Xplore 2.0 release.

IEEE is pleased to make this presentation available online.

Special thanks to Rachel Berrington for bringing this to my attention.
