SPIE has selected Silverchair Information Systems to host the SPIE Digital Library on its SCM6 platform from June 2012.

The SPIE Digital Library includes more than 320,000 technical papers from SPIE journals and conference proceedings from 1990 to the present and more than 150 SPIE Press books. SPIE publishes approximately 17,000 new technical papers and 15 to 20 new books in the SPIE Digital Library each year.

‘We chose Silverchair as a strategic partner largely because its strong semantic capabilities will enable the SPIE Digital Library to be a truly integrated information portal,’ said Eric Pepper, SPIE director of publications. ‘In addition to supporting essential publishing and usage functionality, SCM6 will enable us to draw connections between topically related information across the SPIE corpus, link to valuable content from other sources of interest to the researchers who use our database, and facilitate user personalisation.’
