Citelighter Launches PDF Capture & Storage Function
Turns Web Tool Into a Fully Functional Research Repository
Citelighter, the company responsible for the intuitive and easy to use fully automated research and citation tool, has released its newest educational product offering aimed at making research more credible, efficient, and productive.
With a release date of January 14th, 2013, Citelighter will now allow users of its platform to capture content from PDF documents, as well as store and capture information from offline PDF documents in their personal accounts. The feature is available to subscribers of the Citelighter Pro service, which currently has a price tag of only $10 a month. The Pro version of the product will function in the same manner as it has since its release in September, 2012, providing users with access to the Questia Database (a Cengage Learning product) while making
s recommendations about relevant premium content based on a user’s research patterns.
The ability to capture PDF is a large step towards making Citelighter an even more advanced information hub and content repository for anyone conducting research. The newly added feature widens the breadth of functionality by allowing users to highlight from the Internet, Citelighter Pro (Questia), and academic information databases, as well as offline books and journals.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer Citelighter users the ability to capture information from yet another source,” said Citelighter CEO Saad Alam. “ The ability to capture PDF will expand the offering even more and will allow users to store information from an exponentially larger array of academically sound, credible content.”
In preparation for launching PDF capture, Citelighter optimized its plug-in support for the Firefox Internet browser. PDF capture for Google Chrome and Apple Safari browsers will be available in Spring 2013, as will basic plug-in support for Microsoft Internet Explorer. In the coming months Citelighter will also be launching a word processing and complex analytics component for educators.
