First “Super Searchers” title features the techniques and strategies of leading business researchers
Medford, New Jersey, May 12, 1999—Information Today, Inc. has announced the launch of its new “Super Searchers” series of books with the June release of Mary Ellen Bates’ Super Searchers Do Business: The Online Secrets of Top Business Researchers.
“The Super Searchers series draws and expands on the extremely successful Secrets of the Super Searchers and Secrets of the Super Net Searchers books by noted author and cyberspace icon Reva Basch,” according to editor-in-chief John Bryans. Bryans said the series from CyberAge Books (the trade book imprint of Information Today, Inc.) is intended to aid the growing numbers of professionals who are conducting research online.
Each book in the series features in-depth interviews with eight to twelve expert online searchers in a particular field or research specialty. Each title focuses on a subject area that is information-intensive, that relies on specialized sources, systems, and techniques, and that presents unique and interesting research challenges. The executive editor of the series is Reva Basch, the pioneering writer, online researcher, and cybrarian dubbed “the ultimate intelligent agent” by Wired Magazine.
The series launches with the June release of Super Searchers Do Business by Mary Ellen Bates. Through her in-depth interviews with eleven leading researchers who use the Internet and online services to find critical business information, Bates—author of The Online Deskbook and a highly regarded online researcher—gets the experts to reveal how they choose online sources, evaluate search results, and tackle challenging business research projects. The book is loaded with tips, techniques, and strategies geared to helping business researchers use online resources effectively.
Dow Jones Interactive, based in Princeton, NJ, will sponsor a book signing and launch party at this year’s Special Library Association (SLA) annual conference (June 7-10) in Minneapolis. The book will be available for the first time at the conference, and author Bates and editor Basch will be on hand to celebrate the event by signing copies of Super Searchers Do Business for readers.
Future series titles include T. R. Halvorson’s Law of the Super Searchers: The Online Secrets of Top Legal Researchers, and Amelia Kassel’s Super Searchers on Wall Street: Top Investment Professionals Share Their Online Research Secrets. The publisher plans to release at least two new titles in the series annually.
