Newton, MA--Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
No, spring hasn't turned our thoughts to wedding vows. This little poem also aptly describes the new look and feel of Design News Online.
You'll find your old favorites--all the features and departments from Design News magazine, our Website Exclusive area, and daily news updates from Lexis-Nexis.
But we've got some new things, too--Tech Theater with videos of the technology you've read about, Answer of the Month winners, even our web editor's Pick of the Day.
Something borrowed? It's there, with links to the Manufacturing Marketplace home page, the OEM Directory of products and suppliers, and we even "borrow" articles and information from our 13 sister publications.
What about blue? This becomes obvious when you hit the new home page at www.designnews.com. But you won't be blue you dropped by. Check out the latest Channels in the markets and technologies of interest. Or click on the "About DN" button and find out how to contact editors and staff members. Or remember that article back in 1995? A new feature allows you to search our extensive archives by keyword, or issue by issue.
For an added incentive to visit Design News, if you register as a user of the site, you will be entered in a sweepstakes to win a trip for two to the tropical isle of Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. Go to the black bar at the top of the page. Click on Manufacturing Marketplace. Look for the sweepstakes information. Or go directly to the sweepstakes by typing in www.manufacturing.net/sweeps. Register on the site and you are entered automatically in our sweepstakes. If you are already a registered user of Manufacturing Marketplace, follow the instructions listed there to enter the sweepstakes. Sweepstakes ends May 15, 1998, and the winner will be notified by mail by May 31, 1998.
So remember this other piece of poetry of spring..."Roses are red, Design News is blue, Log on every day, To learn what's new."
