RE: Faceted search across Cambridge Books & Journals Online

Indeed, this is good news. The next challenge is to bridge the 
divide between journal/book content and the original data on 
which articles and chapters are based. This will require a system 
for organizing datasets and giving each metadata to enable the 
connections to be made. The tools, such as those provided by 
DataCite, are beginning to be available but publishers need to do 
a lot more to encourage authors to not only make datasets 
available, but make them accessible, discoverable and citable 
alongside traditional scholarly literature.

This is an excellent and much desired development! I have long 
argued the case for bridging the new 'digital divide' between 
journal and book content, and I'm delighted to see this step 
being taken by Cambridge, while Johns Hopkins through its Project 
Muse's new initiative in adding book content is also going to 
allow for searching across book and journal content.
