Abstract (Document Summary)

At its general Web site, Dialog features overviews for 26 of the most heavily used databases. Quantum2 is Dialog's leadership development program; it is designed to help information professionals expand their visibility and value. The Quantum2 program has its own set of training Webinars designed not around the Dialog product but around making a user a better information professional. Dialog's What's New section gives access to company and product news releases. However, it's difficult to see the difference between the two groupings on the page.
