Information Today, Inc. Acquires The CyberSkeptic's Guide to Internet Research

Information Today, Inc. (ITI) has announced the acquisition of The CyberSkeptic's Guide to Internet Research, a monthly subscription newsletter that was formerly published by BiblioData, Inc. Beginning with the November 2002 issue, Sheri Lanza will assume the position of editor from Ruth Orenstein, president of BiblioData, Inc.

The CyberSkeptic's Guide to Internet Research explores and evaluates free Web sites and search strategies to help subscribers use the Internet to stay up-to-date on resources. Going into its eighth year of publication, The CyberSkeptic's Guide provides concise, practical information and expresses strong opinions on the quality of Internet information sources, according to the announcement. The newsletter is geared toward business, news, technical, medical, legal, and international research as well as market research and competitive intelligence. It currently has more than 1,000 subscribers.

Orenstein said: "The Internet has gone through amazing changes in the 7 years we have published CyberSkeptic. In the beginning, the Internet was competing against paid databases, and we were skeptical that anything of value was to be had for free. But, there were wonderful resources to report on, and these increased over the years. We are delighted that Information Today, Inc. has become the new owner of CyberSkeptic, since we know that they will pay careful attention to maintaining the usefulness and quality of the newsletter."

"The CyberSkeptic's Guide will round out the ITI family of products, which include many other information-based publications," said Tom Hogan, CEO of Information Today, Inc. "We have admired the solid research and practical advice that Ruth's newsletter has been dispensing for many years. We fully expect Sheri to build on that foundation and provide an even richer basket of information that can be put immediately to use by Internet researchers."

BiblioData, Inc. started out in 1987 tracking the professional online industry. In addition to The CyberSkeptic's Guide to Internet Research, the company has published such titles as Fulltext Sources Online (now published by Information Today, Inc.), Newspapers Online, and BiblioData's Price Watcher.
