>UnCoverWeb NOW AVAILABLE
>The UnCover Company is pleased to announce the release of UnCoverWeb, our
>new World Wide Web site that includes a Web interface to the UnCover
>database of 17,000 periodicals and over 8 million articles. The URL for
>UnCoverWeb is http://www.carl.org/uncover
>UnCoverWeb is a set of "pages" or destinations on the Web that provides
>access to information about UnCover as well as access to a graphical version
>of the database. UnCoverWeb also provides access to CARLweb and the CARL
>network of databases and services.
>>From the starting page of UnCoverWeb, a user can click on a number of boxes
>and panels to find information about UnCover products and services.
>Detailed descriptions, pricing, and instructions can be accessed. If a user
>has detailed questions, he can simply click on highlighted text to connect
>directly to an UnCover e-mail address.
>The most exciting aspect about UnCoverWeb is the graphical interface though.
>As the case has always been, accessing and searching the UnCover database is
>FREE! The notable difference now is users can do this through the World Wide
>Web! Both novice and experienced UnCover users will be impressed by the
>effortless nature of using the visually-appealing interface. By clicking on
>the graphical interface destination, a user can access, search, and order

>hour (at the regular per article rate), can also be used via UnCoverWeb.
>Other UnCover features such as establishing profiles (user information files
>that are stored by UnCover and accessed only by the individual user) and
>creating title and search strategy lists for UnCover Reveal (an electronic
>table of contents and topical alerting service) can be done by simply
>clicking on fields, boxes, or highlighted text and typing in the requested
>Users who still prefer the text interface to UnCover can also enjoy the
>benefits of the new Web site because aside from the generous amount of
>information about UnCover products and services, a telnet path to the
>character-based interface is provided as well.
>Current UnCover Customized Gateway users will also be excited to know that a
>Gateway version of UnCoverWeb will be released later this year. Some of the
>benefits that Gateway institutions currently enjoy and that will be
>available in the Web version include a holdings match with UnCover that
>results in an online display of materials locally owned and an automated
>system that blocks article orders according to local ownership or an
>institution-specified price limit.
>The main requirements for using UnCoverWeb are Internet connectivity to the
>World Wide Web for your PC, Macintosh, or UNIX workstation and a graphical
>Web browser such as Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
>Information boxes and fields are included on the first page of the site to
>answer any questions. Help boxes and fields are also available throughout
