'Thomson Gale Quietly Rolls Out New Service'

See Information Today NewsBreaks, April 4, 2005, http://www.infotoday.com/newsbreaks/nb050404-1.shtml

The highlights:

* Days after the announcement of the copyright class action preliminary settlement, Thomson Gale "has quietly launched the beta of a new premium business content service for individual users."

* Known as "Goliath," its existence only became evident to Information Today's Paula Hane "during a search of premium content at LookSmart's FindArticles.com site, which provides links to several premium content providers, including HighBeam Research, KeepMedia, ProQuest (just announced in March), and Goliath. A little Goliath icon led me over to the new site. Thomson Gale has not issued any press releases or announcements about the new service."

* A full subscription to Goliath costs $345.95 a month. "An individual article purchased directly at Goliath, or located through a service like FindArticles.com and purchased at Goliath, costs $9.95."

* "The launch of the Goliath service marks a move by Thomson Gale into new territory -- outside of libraries."

I have been surfing the net for awhile and it feels as if I am trying to find a needle in a haystack to get answers. It has been a relief to find your blog. I particularly enjoyed your most recent post.

Wishing you the best of luck,
