Such a site!
Haven't been to the Design News Online website lately-then, by golly, you ought to check out our new look and content. Not only is the site easier to navigate, but users can get just about anywhere on the site in one click. Oh, you'll still find all the back issues from Design News from 1995 on, but also Channels and Website Exclusive information from the likes of Lexis-Nexis news. Also on the site is information for design engineers who work globally, including each complete issue of Global Design News . And the newest feature is our Search Engineer, an industry-specific search engine that scouts out just the sites of interest to design engineers. But there's more...we are building a brand new OEM Directory and a new product database, both of which will debut by the fall.
The site is growing daily...but we need your input, as
well. Are we missing a valuable link? Do you have a suggestion for our
Engineer's Toolbox or have a great career site bookmarked that you want to
share? Then drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll check it
out. And visit us often at http://www.designnews.com ...you never know what you'll find next.
