ProQuest Search Widget

More widgetology! We can put ProQuest search boxes on web pages without doing a lot of programming.


Enter your search terms:

This one is limited to full text and ABI/Inform, Hoover's, the Wall Street Journal, and the ProQuest Business Module. That may be too restrictive for real life, but makes a reasonable demo.

Thanks to Jenny, the Shifted Librarian, for her more detailed post.

Multipoint and 3D Tracking with Off the Shelf Hardware

From the Shifted Librarian, a link to Johnny Chung Lee 's projects based on the Wii game equipment - The Coolest Training Lab Ever.

This is what our students will start to see in their games in the next few years.
