Clients get the latest news about knowledge updates and database changes as well as newly added providers and databases in our Support Center.

The buzz these days is all about e-books and we continue to work on our E-book Normalization Project to help you increase usage and ROI for e-books.  Since June 6, 2012 our team has created over 17,000 new authority title records for e-books and added additional normalizers for over 306,000 e-book holdings.  Normalization improves e-book results in our 360 services and provides users more consistent and streamlined access to e-books.  Clients can see regular project status updates in our Support Center (Answer 827).
