Dialog Unveils New CSA Research Alerts Service

Oct 07, 2005

Content aggregator Dialog, a Thomson business, has announced that it is now offering Alerts subscriptions to the CSA research databases for its customers in the corporate and government markets.

Dialog will provide access to the CSA Technology Research Database. The CSA databases being added cover research in the fields of aeronautics, astronautics, engineering, environmental sciences, life sciences, materials, metals and alloys, space sciences, social/library sciences and technology, among others. The new Alerts subscriptions will allow Dialog customers to receive email notifications when relevant new CSA research is added to the Dialog online service. As part of the CSA Alerts subscription, trained information specialists in the Dialog Alerts Bureau will develop a search strategy for customers to precisely match their research-monitoring needs.

In addition to Alerts, Dialog also facilitates access to electronic journal subscriptions, provides links to related materials, and offers a broad selection of custom report templates through its DialogLink 5 software. Searchers can use these templates to transform their research into professionally formatted reports for distribution to decision makers and others in their organizations. Alerts subscriptions to that database (File 23) are available immediately. Alerts subscriptions for the more than 30 databases of CSA scientific and technical research being added to Dialog will be available in upcoming months.
