Historical Abstracts and AH&L upgrades in beta

FYI, the beta includes these new features:

* the means to search both America: History & Life and Historical Abstracts at once if your institution subscribes to both databases
* the means to easily limit by one of five most-often-occurring languages from the Basic search screen
* the means to automatically expand all results (in Display Options) or to expand by group (in results display)
* the means to easily print a single record from search results
* catalog linking support for Historical Abstracts Book entries
* the means to save searches to a personal profile
* time period searches that accept single years and spans of years
* faster searching with quoted phrases and asterisk wildcards

The site beta - located at http://serials.abc-clio.com/beta/ - is available to you for testing from now until the week of 19 June (at which time the site will go live).
