Microsoft Live Academic (beta)

Microsoft have launched a product to compete with Google Scholar. Microsoft Live Academic is in beta version, found at http://academic.live.com. Currently content covers just Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Physics with more than 6 million records from approximately 4300 journals and 2000 conferences - they say more subject coverage is coming based on how this beta product goes. See an overview and comments at ResourceShelf.com.
University of Bath users should be able to use Live Academic and follow the links to full text of journals we subscribe to with the usual BUCS username and password if off campus.
