New information science database on STN

29.11.2004


The world’s leading online service for sci-tech information STN International, whose European partner is FIZ Karlsruhe, has complemented its offer of specialist databases with LISA, a new database for library and information science.

LISA (Library and Information Science Abstracts) produced by Cambridge Scientific Abstracts is is an international abstracting and indexing tool designed for library professionals and other information specialists. It covers a wide variety of subjects from librarianship and information science, including artificial intelligence, computer science applications, information and knowledge management, internet technology, telecommunications, library management and many more. Citations contain bibliographic information, controlled vocabulary, and an abstract. Titles are available in original language and English translation.

Sources for LISA are 450 periodicals from more than 68 countries and in more than 20 different languages. The file currently contains over 264,000 records from 1969 to date and is updated twice a month.



All information can be accessed through STN’s powerful search functions. Search terms may be entered individually, or logically concatenated in a combined search. Only results matching all predefined criteria are retrieved. Simultaneous left and right truncation (searches using the root of a word, with prefixes and/or suffixes substituted by question marks) is possible in the basic index field. Regular automatic current-awareness-searches (SDIs) are also available. At each database update the system checks if any new answers have been added that match a user’s saved search profile. Where such matches are found, the answers are then forwarded to the user.

Full-text publications on the searched subjects can be ordered online, using the STN Full-Text-Solution providing connections to various document delivery services, or through FIZ Karlsruhe’s document delivery broker service FIZ AutoDoc autodoc.fiz-karlsruhe.de .

Information in LISA and the other more than 220 databases hosted on STN International can be accessed by dialing in to STN’s online service using its proprietary client software, "STN Express with Discover!" (now available in its enhanced version 7.01), or over the Internet using a standard web browser stnweb.fiz-karlsruhe.de . At a later time, LISA may also be available in STN Easy, the point-and-click interface for occasional searchers unfamiliar with the STN command language stneasy.fiz-karlsruhe.de.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
