ScienceDirect (SD) is a compendium of scientific, technical, and medical (STM) literature from Reed Elsevier, one of the world’s largest publishers. ScienceDirect claims to contain approximately “25% of the world’s science, technology and medicine full text and bibliographic information.” SD is an expensive, and often contentious product in Higher Education due to high year-on-year pricing increases, but it is a highly desirable one, nonetheless.
Google Scholaris Google’s search interface for scholarly-related material. Scholar has become tremendously popular for focussed searches in the scholarly literature among not only academics and students, but seekers of health information and other science-based data.

Elsevier has now undertaken to have the majority of its SD journals (those for which it holds or can obtain the copyrights) crawled and indexed by Google. Both Google and Google Scholar are slowly incorporating an increasing amount of this content, and these data will be appearing in search results for Google and Google Scholar.

IBM and K.U.Leuven join forces for students and staff with disabilities

May 3, 2007

IBM and K.U.Leuven concluded a partnership agreement on further development of the university’s facilities for students and staff with disabilities, since both organisations are great proponents of an equal opportunity policy and have been pursuing an active diversity policy for years. The area of collaboration is dyslexia and blindness. Together with specialists from K.U.Leuven, IBM will be investigating a number of software packages with the cooperation of their suppliers. You can find some of this equipment in the library ETEW and in other university libraries of the K.U.Leuven.
