Meet content and technology pioneers at ConTech 2018

ConTech 2018 features pioneering organisations who have embraced new intelligent technologies to change the creation, management and use of scholarly and professional information content. Here are two companies that you will be in attendance over the two days:

Third Iron, LLC is a leading information technology company developing innovative services that benefit libraries and their users and the producer of the world’s most popular journal engagement system, BrowZine.  Founded in 2011, Third Iron products are used by researchers from over 700 corporations, hospitals and universities in more than 24 countries around the world.

Why we are attending?

‘The growth in output of scholarly literature, especially in journal articles, is increasing researchers demand for technologies that improve work flow efficiency.  This in turn is requiring that libraries, always central to the research process, rethink the technology ecosystem that supports the critical content resources they maintain. These issues are what ConTech 2018 is all about. New intelligent technologies can offer exciting new solutions, tools and techniques to deal with these issues.

Third Iron software development is animated by these concerns and our services, BrowZine and LibKey Discovery, are designed to meet them.  BrowZine simplifies how researchers can find, read and follow journals, allowing them to easily keep up to date with new trends reported in the literature.  LibKey Discovery extends key aspects of Third Iron technology into discovery services, features such as one-click access to millions of subscribed and Open Access journals from thousands of journals.’
