Blogger comments on Google Scholar Rival

Dean Giustini, OA Librarian blog team member, Google Scholar blogger (and by day a librarian at the University of British Columbia's Biomedical Branch), is quoted in the April 2006 issue of The Scientist Magazine, in an article called Librarians Start Your Search Engines, about Microsoft's new free product, Windows Live Academic Search. Giustini says he likes Microsoft’s Academic Search’s “bells and whistles,” such as self-sort and importing results, which “are the kinds of features we normally pay for in our fee-based tools.”

(Where I found this article: May 2006 issue of UBC's e-Strategy Update).
