The first recorded session is the update on new features recently added to the ISI Web of Knowledge.

Drexelphysics blog had earlier announced some other new features in Web of Knowledge. According to this blog, "You will notice a new box at the beginning of your results list with options to "Refine" your search by Subject Categories, Sourch Titles, Document Types, Authors, and Publication Years and more. When you select one of these "Refinements" you will get a listing with the number of hits for each. Then you can select from the sorted options. Cool! AND you can continue to refine your results and for more options, you can use the analyse tool. NOW you can analyse sets upto 100,000 records."
