Web of Science trial extended

Thomson Scientific is augmenting the Sciences portion of our Web of Science offer to South Dakota universities by adding of our version of Medline and 5 years of the Social Science Citation Index at no additional cost. This is in addition to our plans to provide Endnote Web at no additional cost. We believe these significant modifications to our offer will allow South Dakota schools to build a high-quality electronic research environment based on the market-leading ISI Web of Knowledge platform. South Dakota researchers will now benefit from seamlessly harvesting literature across a deeper pool of disciplines, accessing full-text links (for entitled content), and capturing references for storage or sharing.

To better approximate the environment South Dakota universities will receive in a Web of Science acquisition, I am reauthorizing the present Web of Science trial to include the resources listed above. [Please note, while EndNote Web will be included in our offer, EndNote Web is not scheduled for release until early next year and will not be in the reauthorized trial environment.] A new URL will be assigned for the Web of Science trial. The trial will also be extended until September 30, 2006.
