In the new layout, all current and future editions of the print magazine will be available in digital format, which means that all the magazine articles are viewable online in the original printed format, complete with graphic images and advertisements. "In the past, we were able to upload a few features from each issue as text-only articles, but now the entire issue is available to subscribers in a convenient, lively, and fully searchable format," says Matt Carey, Publisher. The new digital format provides additional useful tools such as its "Send to a Friend" capability, that allows articles to be clipped and forwarded easily from one computer to another. The new digital format will also be integrated with the archive search function, so site visitors will be able to access the new digital articles along with other articles that are posted in the site.
Another exciting new feature is the Market and Process Portals service. Portals will contain all up-to-the-minute news and feature stories within the site on any one of 20 or more nonwovens market segments. "Visitors can quickly drill down to areas of interest, while advertisers can present their products and services in a meaningful way," says Carey.
Additionally, there are several important upgrades to the Buyers Guide that visitors will find useful. The Buyers Guide profiles now contain a complete editorial archive on each listed company, as well as a parametric search dropdown for roll goods companies (search by web width, plant location, etc).
The Nonwovens Industry website serves more than 15,000 unique visitors monthly, and is an excellent source of immediate and compelling information on the industry. To view the new site, go to www.nonwovens-industry.com.
