Elsevier recently launched SciVerse Hub, which provides a discovery layer for ScienceDirect, Scopu, and Scirus. A few weeks ago, they launched Image Search, new functionality within ScienceDirect, that offers searching of images within eBook content as well as millions of scholarly journals. I wrote an article about the new Image Search for Information Today which offers lots more details on the service.
Elsevier is launching it’s SciVerse Hub on August 28th. This new platform combines the searching of Science Direct, Scopus, Scirus and SciTopics.
From their website: Elsevier is launching SciVerse to bring together solutions like ScienceDirect, Scopus, the web content from Scirus, and SciTopics into one point of access, enabling more efficient search and discovery for our users. Beginning in 2008, Elsevier interviewed over 3,000 researchers, research librarians and application developers to discern the obstacles the scientific community is encountering most. We found that researchers need a better way to search, discover, store, share and reuse the data that is most important to their individual research. Developers need access to research data to be able to develop the applications that will best assist them. Librarians are under pressure to maximize the content they already have in their collections, and prove a return on investment for the services they purchase. The launch of the SciVerse platform aims to fulfill all these needs by providing a new single-point of access that will enable collaboration across these three groups.
