New Interface for Hoover's Online

Steven Bell, Head of the Gutman Library at Philadelphia University, (and former Lippincott Assistant Director) mentioned that Hoover's launched a new interface late last week on his blog.

It's Bell's opinion that it's easier to "Build A List"; to this belloger, it's more confusing on the first blush. I dislike more ads on it as well that one has to endure, thus it is slower to access because of more graphics involved.

Nonetheless, Hoover's is still a handy source for those still conducting independent job searching. You cannot create "Watch List" despite what we ask for and what ( Duke ) Ford Librarians have also tried to get for their users, as mentioned on their blog.
