Dialog said that it is now offering DialogLink 4.0, an upgraded version of its software package for information professionals. DialogLink 4.0 adds XML output, new post-processing tools and e-linking capabilities to create reports, distribute information across an enterprise and access electronically published scholarly articles. The new features enable users to better integrate information retrieved from the Dialog service into management reports and corporate intranets and portals. DialogLink 4.0 preserves the commands used in previous versions of DialogLink, but enhances them with greater functionality. With DialogLink 4.0 all content searched and retrieved on the Dialog service is now available in XML. New post-processing tools allow text and data found in retrieved documents culled from any Dialog database collection to be exported into business applications, such as Microsoft Word and Excel. DialogLink 4.0 offers the ability to link to materials outside of the Dialog online system. www.dialog.com
