Title: Get First Insights into STN
Abstract: In this era of digital globalization, early access to trustful and extensive sources of data within a plethora of information is crucial. STN®, an online database service, integrates the world‘s largest and most important value-added databases for sci-tech and patent information on one platform. The browser-based interface STNext enables the focused and comprehensive retrieval of the desired information. Conceived not only as a refresher training for information professionals occasionally or not ever using this multidisciplinary search tool, but also for on-the-job searchers still unfamiliar with STN, this presentation offers the first steps inside.
– The preliminary starting of STNext under customized settings, together with some principal commands and features of STNext will be outlined.
– The basic search is illustrated by a classic single database keyword search, then further applied to a multiple-database search.
– The options of the appropriate databases are assisted by STNGuide, a cost-effective directory database compiled from all databases summary sheets.
– A brief overview of other commands exposes further steps towards a more advanced and multi-faceted search.
Let us make first acquaintance with the STN search tool connecting to databases from the most renowned database producers worldwide!
