scitech library question - The Indexing of SAE Publications in Compendex - The Ongoing Discussion
I am so glad R.R. blogged this. Long story short, Compendex doesn't index SAE pubs because SAE won't let them.
SAE mistakenly believes that allowing indexing of their publications will decrease sales of their digital library. Are they on drugs? For those of us who can't afford or don't need the entire library but WILL pay up to $75 for articles -- how are we supposed to know what articles exist? Hop out of comfortable DIALOG, out of our cozy federated searches, out of EV2, and jaunt over to their crappy site? Note what happened to poor MM -- I guess to be thorough, we'll have to remember this.
