Improved Business & Company Resource Center

Greetings!

I just learned that there is significant new and improved content in our
Business & Company Resource Center. The new content is described below,
and now the Investment Reports and Financials sections have been greatly
improved. You can access B&CRC on our list of databases, or here:

Subject: New Components Launch on Gale's Business & Company Resource Center


New components launch on Gale's Business & Company Resource Center

Includes new investment research from Reuters Research on Demand, plus
support for podcasts, blogs, and social networking!
Dear Business & Company Resource Center Customer:

BCRC now has a new collection of investment research reports from
Reuters Research on Demand: a three-year rolling file of investment
reports from investment banks, brokers, independent research providers
and from Reuters itself.

Nearly 40 providers of investment reports are included.*

Some of the benefits you will see are:

- Embargo: The embargo on the research reports depends upon the
embargo period that the investment research provider has negotiated
with Reuters. As a result, some reports available were published as
recently as the same week.

- Speed: The new system is designed to serve up PDF research reports
very quickly. Users can then view, print, or even save the PDF to their
computer. (One type of report, the Reuters Estimates report, is in
HTML.)

- Phantom PDFs: The new system is based on a real-time feed, so there
will be NO instances where the results list shows a specific investment
report that is not actually available.

- Reuters reports: Reuters is providing its own Estimates, Fundamentals
Reports, and Investment Profiles.

- Simple UI: A no-nonsense user interface lets the business researcher
quickly view a results list, choose a report to view, and navigate
between pages. The results list shows the report name, date of
publication, research provider, and number of pages in the report.

This change affects all flavors of BCRC. Investment research is
accessible from the "Investment Reports" tab when viewing a company,
and by ticker symbol from the Advanced Search page. Additional search
paths, such as by industry codes (SIC and NAICS) will be added in early
2008.

* The publishers of investment reports from Reuters Research on
Demand that are now included are:

B. Riley & Co.; Brean Murray & Co.; Inc.; C.L. King & Associates;
Capital One Equities; LTD; Capital One Southcoast; Inc.; Charles
Stanley; Cohen Bros; CompanyNewsGroup; Craig Hallum; D.A. Davidson &
Company; Davenport & Company; LLC; DBS Vickers Hong Kong Limited;

Inc.

The above list is subject to change. Gale and Reuters will evaluate the
merits of additional research providers over time.

In addition, as you have probably noted, a new financials dashboard
recently launched on Gale's Business & Company Resource Center that
includes extensive company stock and financial information, charting,
audio content, open Web resources and much more.

Content Highlights:
* Current and historical company stock data
* Extensive audio content (podcasts and investor conference calls)
* Blogs from the open Web
* News articles from the open Web
* Company press releases
* SEC documents (including company balance sheets, cash flow
statements, and other financials)

Plus, users can:
* Create charts that compare one stock to another, or to a particular
index.
* Track their favorite newsfeeds for articles or podcasts by adding
them to an RSS reader
* Share their favorite items via email or social networking sites
like DIGG, del.icio.us, Technorati or Newsvine.

The dashboard includes five "views" that make navigation easy, and
extensive interlinking within the Financials dashboard encourages
usage. Plus it offers views into industries, world markets, currency,
bank and treasury rates, and much more.

Check it out by logging into BCRC today and look for additional
exciting BCRC improvements to come in 2008!
