Maybe it's just me, but the impending launch of Microsoft's version of Google Scholar, Academic Search, seems to be slipping up without much notice in the blogosphere. They've mentioned it at Search Engine Watch, but apparently a week or so ago three of our colleagues were invited to Redmond to give the product a spin before its official launch tomorrow (April 11). Best coverage so far is at Dean Giustini's UBC Google Scholar Blog.Folio, where two entries have been posted so far about the product. The second one has a list of what Dean considers to be the positives and negatives of the product. Stay sharp!
