Windows Live Academic Search By Microsoft

Apr 13, 2006 • 6:45 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Bing Search

Chris Sherman has the SearchDay and Gary Price has the librarian perspective on the launch of Windows Live Academic from yesterday.

Windows Live Academic is now in beta. We currently index content related to computer science, physics, electrical engineering, and related subject areas.

Academic search enables you to search for peer reviewed journal articles contained in journal publisher portals and on the web in locations like citeseer.

Academic search works with libraries and institutions to search and provide access to subscription content for their members. Access restricted resources include subscription services or premium peer-reviewed journals. You may be able to access restricted content through your library or institution.

We have built several features designed to help you rapidly find the content you are searching for including abstract previews via our preview pane, sort and group by capability, and citation export. We invite you to try us out - and share your feedback with us.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld, where members initially complain about how slow the search is.

This entry was written yesterday, but scheduled to be published today.
