THE ASME DIGITAL COLLECTION (FORMERLY THE ASME DIGITAL LIBRARY) re-launched in March on SCM6, an online publishing platform from Silverchair Information Systems. This state-of-the art platform provides expanded accessibility and discoverability for ASME's e-books, journals, and conference proceedings by leveraging the latest in semantic technology and other features and functionality.

"The new publishing platform from Silverchair allows us to fully integrate all of our content and improve information discovery for researchers, educators, and students," said Philip DiVietro, ASME's managing director of publishing. "The ASME Digital Collection's unparalleled depth, breadth and quality of mechanical engineering technical content are easier and faster to access than ever. We are pleased to collaborate with Silverchair to provide a unified user experience."

"The launch of the new ASME Digital Collection is a milestone for Silverchair and a new benchmark for STM publishers," said Thane Kerner, CEO of Silverchair Information Systems. "Working with ASME, we have extended our semantic coverage across mechanical engineering, integrating one of the largest portfolios of technical information available today into a cohesive digital library optimized for the information needs of today's professional users."
