Though the trade show opened at noon, few delegates could be found in the hall. (Quite possibly the picture-perfect day at Baltimore’s inner harbor was a distraction.) But according to exhibitors, those who came by the hall were “primo.”
I found a crowd gathered around the Knovel booth, where the company was giving previews of its new chemical structure searching capabilities. By October 1, Corinna Czekaj, Director of Product Development (left in the picture), told me Knovel’s complete collection of 890 books will be searchable by chemical structure or substructure. Searches can be refined on the basis of physical properties, with results displayed in table form. Nifty!
Other Knovel representatives participating in the demo were Dinesh Fernando (center) and Martin Whitcher, Regional Sales Manager for the UK.
To get your own demo, visit Knovel in booth 603.
