TableBase launches new search interface

TableBase, a database of tabular data on companies, industries, products and demographics, has gotten a new look, as well as more content and other enhancements.

TableBase's new default interface has a Simple Search text box that looks for results across the database, while the Advanced Search option provides the kind of search TableBase users will be used to.

Gale RDS Business Suite has provided a guided video tour of the new interface, as well as an overview of the new features and functionality. You can view the tour and learn more at the RDS Business Suite website.

New Medical and Alternative Energy Databases

Kresge Library has acquired two new industry databases: Alternative Energy eTrack and Medical eTrack. Both databases are available to the Ross community only.

Alternative Energy eTrack includes news, deal information, company profiles, and reports related to the alternate and renewable energy industries. Topics include renewables, coal to gas, biomass to liquids, carbon emissions and trading, and hydrogen and fuel cells.

Medical eTrack includes similar information for the medical equipment market, as well as clinical trials, procedures, and patents, news and research, product and pipeline, and company deals. Additionally, information can be organized by country and company.
