2collab and ScienceDirect

Elsevier have stepped up the integration between their bookmarking tool 2collab and their database offerings including ScienceDirect - Bournemouth University has a subscription. ScienceDirect already allows you to bookmark directly into 2collab and now displays an information box with 2collab ratings, tags, comments and groups. Its very neat - but early days. A random test could not locate any items bookmarked in 2collab.

2collab can be used to bookmark items across the web not just Elsevier products. However, as an Elsevier product it has privileged position on the interfaces of their bibliographic database including ScienceDirect, Scopus and Engineering Village.
