The completely rebuilt Dialog information service made its official debut at the Special Libraries Association Conference in San Diego. Now called ProQuest Dialog the reinvented service makes about a billion documents accessible for the first time to searchers of all skill levels. Three intuitive search modes in the same interface enable content to be quickly pinpointed and delivered in ready-to-use form.
Dialog was among the first commercial online information service, launched decades in advance of the internet under the leadership of Roger K. Summit. Until now, using Dialog has required intensive training and practice, and the underlying architecture was not adaptable.
ProQuest Dialog provides a search mode for researchers from novice to expert information professional, with tools that refine results and output to support a variety of workflows. Users have flexibility in pricing and content.
