Another fairly slow week, catching up after the busy month of projects, beat up and worn out, and trying to get over the cold going around the newsroom. Time for some time off. The blog will continue the 2nd week of October.
This week some interesting new things, and some changes in major vendors' offerings. Nexis continues to add new Gannett newspapers, some that have never been online before (like my hometown paper, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle), and Dialog is removing some important papers. What's up with that? One of Dialog's pluses has been that their archives of some papers go back much further than Nexis', including two papers we use all the time, the Orlando Sentinel and the Sun-Sentinel. Losing those 4-5 years of back archives will force us to use the papers' website archives, a less convenient solution.
And the useful links:
