Infotrieve, Inc. has announced the launch of its federated search solution, ArticleFinder eXtreme (AFX), designed to shorten discovery cycles and deliver cost savings to special libraries by leveraging their existing resources. AFX can be integrated into Infotrieve's Virtual Library technology platform, allowing users to simultaneously search their library's holdings, subscription and public databases.
Features of AFX include in-holdings checks to reduce duplicate orders, merging and sorting of results, automated user authentication for multiple databases, saved search queries as alerts, and usage reporting. It also allows for one-click LinkOut access to full-text articles in electronic collections, the exporting of citations directly into bibliographic citation managers ProCite and EndNote, and integrated ordering through Infotrieve's Virtual Library for documents not located in a library's collections. AFX can be purchased for integration into Infotrieve's Virtual Library technology platform. The Virtual Library enables libraries and information centers to have a customized document ordering environment with administrative price and spending limits controls, detailed usage reporting, and multiple configurations options for mediated or unmediated user access.
