ENGnetBASE To Double In Size, SciTech Bloggers Converge at The Steam Whistle

:: At the SLA Conference in Toronto today, I visited with representatives of CRC Press, who advised that ENGnetBASE, the flagship full-text engineering handbook db of CRC Press, will expand in size in July. Currently at 298 titles, approximately 375 new engineering-related titles will be added to the db in July. The titles will be from Dekker and Taylor & Francis, as well as a number of CRC Press titles.

CRCnetBASE representatives also advised that if your library currently subscribes to six different CRCnetBASE products, subscriptions to additional netBASE dbs can be added for US$1000 each.

:: Also of note, tonight at a reception at the Steam Whistle Brewery, I finally met fellow Canadian engineering librarian blogger Catherine Lavalée-Welch, who recently moved to Florida. Also at the reception were a number of other scitech bloggers, including John Dupuis, Teri Vogel, and Christina Pikas. A number of group digital photos were taken with Christina's camera, including this one.
