30 “PCI Full Text is a major resource that will be extraordinarily useful in academic libraries. Content is scholarly and international, the back file is impressive, searching is straightforward, and the content is expanding. … [A] ‘must have’ for large public and academic libraries.” Library Journal, April 15, 2003 “ Bravo for the upgrade. The collection of scholarly titles as well as journals of historical interest will appeal to a broad spectrum of researchers, and digitized access to a full-text archive only makes it sweeter. With a brand new interface, search enhancements, improved features and tools, searchable full text, and new collections, these two products have only gotten better. PAO and PIO certainly deserve an opportunity to wow your patrons.” NetConnect, January 16, 2006
