Dialog NewsRoom Now Offered as Stand-Alone Service

Dialog Corp. has announced that its recently launched Dialog NewsRoom database is now available as a stand-alone Web-based service. Dialog NewsRoom remains accessible as a file on the Dialog-branded platform of online services (file number 990), and as files on Dialog DataStar (file: NEWS) and Dialog Profound (file: NewsLine).

Dialog NewsRoom provides more than 7,000 news sources for electronic searching and retrieval. Additionally, the Dialog NewsRoom stand-alone product offers about 1,500 of those sources with a 5-year archive.

Among the sources recently added are Kauppalehti, a leading Finnish business and financial newspaper; HedgeWorld DailyNews, a New York-based online news service that addresses the global hedge fund and alternative investment industries; and Transitions Online, a leading Internet magazine that covers Eastern and Central Europe, the Balkans, and the countries of the former Soviet Union.

Other sources added to Dialog NewsRoom are PRIMEDIA Business Magazines (reporting on 20 industry sectors), the Associated Press (including its Alerts and State Wires services), American Health Consultants (including its 80 newsletters that cover a broad spectrum of healthcare topics), and the Federal Document Clearing House (featuring comprehensive political and government news from the U.S.).

Dialog NewsRoom is a unified database of news sources that can be searched simultaneously using a single search command. Content includes broadcast transcripts, newspapers, periodicals, news wires, and trade and scholarly journals. These sources are provided in English and seven other languages and are drawn from nearly 80 countries.

Dialog NewsRoom offers enterprisewide subscriptions of a fixed monthly fee for unlimited use. This fee is based on the number of users who access the database within an organization. Users can also opt to pay a $2.95 per-document retrieval charge.
