More new features
16 March 2002

We're in the midst of experimenting with a new DBMS in preparation for migrating this functionality to a new server. As part of this process, you should see a "Quick-Finder" box at the top of the left-hand column on every page. You can use the new feature to find books by author, title, publisher, series, or year of publication in three simple steps. First, use the pop-up menu to choose what kind of search you want to perform. Second, type in the first few characters for your search. Third, click on the "Find" button. We think you'll find this an extremely handy way to locate information about the books in our database. Remember, however, the system is still experimental, so please forgive us if the results at the moment are not always as perfect as we would all prefer.

Visitors to Stone & Stone Second World War Books should notice some minor but useful improvements to our webpages, with expanded links from items on our "bibliographic pages" to individual book pages with comments submitted by readers, links to author pages, search buttons for sources for purchasing the item, links to reviews, links to awards won by the title, and—as of today—links to more books covering the same topics. We'll be gradually expanding all this interlocking information for more and more books within the next few months.
