According to Personal Library Software Inc, publishing companies can now cash in on Internet hits to their sites, while users benefit from accurate responses to searches. The company has launched AT1 Internet-based search and retrieval engine for the publishing industry, enabling users to request accurate details from specific searches, on a pay-per-view basis. AT1 gives users access to over 1,000 ‘hidden’ databases, while at the same time publishers have access to potential new users at little or no cost. PLS will make its money from advertising and a brokering fee charged to users when they request specific details. AT1 uses software called Beacon that enables on-line publishers using the PLS search and indexing products to create and send an index to the AT1 central server.
