Title
Vendors future : Northern Light - delivering high-quality content to a large Internet audience
Source
Searcher. 5(1997) no.10, S.47-51
Year
1997
Abstract
A new Web based service, Northern Light, aims to serve large populations of users, by delivering high-quality content on both general and narrow topics. Analyzes the trends that have led to an explosion of access to information on the Internet, but also to difficulties in finding relevant, quality information. Describes the Northern Light search engine which improves naive user searching through its innovative refinement scheme Custom Search folders, but also offers a more sophisticated search syntax for finer control. Searching is free, as is access to many Web Sies, but access to full text articles from a special collection of journals is fee-based. Advocates this free saerch / pay for content payment model for the wider information industry
