Eye to Eye: Ingenta Partners with Google
Pointed out by C.B. via e-mail.
"Ingenta is pleased to announce the successful implementation of full text indexing on Google, the popular and widely used Internet search-engine... As of March 2004, Ingenta has enabled full text access for the crawler, meaning all words in the article, not just the abstracts and keywords, are indexed and searchable on Google... Ingenta has currently switched on full text crawling as a trial for 70 publishers, including CABI Publishing, Professional Engineering Publishing, FD Communications Inc., and American Ceramic Society, and will be adding more in the weeks to come."
I guess this really isn't any worse than researchers hitting the Ingenta site first and mistaking it for a real database (like BIOSIS or INSPEC). It will require librarians to be even more aggressive in training users on databases and their merits.
