Nerac to showcase new product at SLA 2004 Conference in June (SLA Booth #549)

TOLLAND, CT –June 2, 2004. Nerac, Inc., a leading information services company, today announced the official launch of TOC Journal Watch Plus, an online service that tracks the table of contents from 21,000+ publications. TOC Journal Watch Plus also delivers an easy solution for locating the full-text document through DOI (Digital Object Identifier) platforms, Open URL or a combination of both systems. This allows a corporate library to customize preferred delivery paths through in-house holdings, publishers, vendors, Nerac's Document Services or virtually any source for document fulfillment.

TOC Journal Watch Plus delivers a customized product to suit the journal tracking and document needs of a knowledge center. Through customized programming, Nerac is able to synchronize with a library's current document delivery system for seamless ordering of full-text publications. Currently available to knowledge centers, TOC Journal Watch Plus will be the featured product for Nerac at this year's Special Libraries Association (SLA) 2004 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee from June 5-10.

"We provide options. With TOC Journal Watch Plus, Nerac takes journal tracking and full-text document ordering to the next level. Through flexible programming capabilities, knowledge centers can choose to order documents from a combination of CrossRef, direct from publishers, in-house files and nearly any resource that delivers full-text," said Kevin Bouley, Nerac's President. "Because Nerac provides the table of contents for more than 21,000 publications and a tailor-made system for full-text linking, TOC Journal Watch Plus is the best solution available for librarians."

Nerac's TOC Journal Watch Plus provides a single point of discovery for 21,000+ journals worldwide. For the librarian, TOC Journal Watch Plus provides a seamless Web portal that promotes the library's brand and keeps Nerac behind the curtain. Nerac also provides ongoing reports that track company usage and ordering patterns to help librarians streamline resources and determine future holdings and subscriptions.

For the end user, TOC Journal Watch Plus simplifies the process of journal tracking and full-text document ordering. Users are provided with a library-branded portal that seamlessly accesses Nerac's online search engine. Users can peruse the database of 21,000+ publications in nearly 100 subcategories within the areas of Agriculture, Arts and Humanities, Biology and Biotechnology, Business and Management, Engineering, Industry, Language, Medical and Healthcare, Science and Social Science. On receiving TOC Journal Watch updates, users can then link directly to the library's preferred source for document fulfillment.
