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: Data storage using individual molecules

Researchers from the University of Basel have reported a new method that allows the physical state of just a few atoms or molecules within a network to be controlled. It is based on the spontaneous self-organization of molecules into extensive networks with pores about one nanometer in size. In the journal ‘small’, the physicists reported on their investigations, which could be of particular importance for the development of new storage devices.

Around the world, researchers are attempting to shrink data storage devices to achieve as large a storage capacity in as small a space as possible. In almost...

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
