Subject: BLonline - Improved User Interface


Today, July 11, 2005, a new, user-friendly, user interface of BLonline has
been launched. Retrieving data from this online bibliographical database of
linguistic publications has become easier and more effective. The most
important features are:

- simple search and advanced search options are now available
- an option to search by "any word" has been introduced, in addition to
searching in specific fields
- searching by subject has been considerably improved
- better navigation possibilities have been introduced

BLonline is the web version of the Bibliographie linguistique/Linguistic
Bibliography, which has been published by the Permanent International
Committee of Linguists since 1950. BLonline is produced and hosted by the
Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the National Library of the Netherlands. It covers
the period 1993 till the present; it now contains over 190,000 references
and is updated monthly. BLonline is freely accessible for every scholar and
student of linguistics. No login name or password needed, just click
www.blonline.nl and search.
