"Informe directly targets your library's Hispanic user community research needs. Providing full-text access to a solid body of Spanish-language and bilingual publications in both the academic and lifestyle spheres, Informe offers unique content and an indexing scheme and interface specifically geared toward the Spanish-speaking researcher. Informe would be very popular in public library settings where access to Spanish-language magazines, news sources, and scholarly journals - offered via the comfort of a highly accessible interface and a familiar Spanish-language thesaurus would be welcomed by a segment of the user community. Schools with Spanish-language programs would readily find ways to incorporate the research content and the many opportunties for cultural enrichment into their coursework. Instruction in language and area studies courses, programming for cultural events, diversity initiatives, and preparation for study abroad programs would all benefit from access to this unique and versatile resource."--netconnect, Fall 2006
