The National Post is the latest addition to Dialog's portfolio of international news content. The company recently launched its NewsRoom service, an online database that combines more than 6,500 news sources. The National Post and The Financial Post are included in NewsRoom.

The National Post can also be electronically searched on the Dialog service in files 601 (early-bird service) and 727 (archives, starting the day after publication). The Financial Post continues to be available in File 727.

BioSpace Agreement
Through the alliance with BioSpace, Dialog has made portions of the content it collects from thousands of information providers around the world available through BioSpace's Web site. From anywhere within the site, users are able to click through to Dialog where they can search for articles, reports, and documents published in dozens of databases. Users can purchase the full text of desired documents online with a credit card.

The initial Dialog content available to BioSpace users includes clinical databases, worldwide patents and related intellectual property documentation, world news that's focused on the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and an extensive array of scientific literature.
