More on Northern Light - News search to shut down

Gary Price has been following the shutdown of the Northern Light special collection on the Web.
I've received e-mail from several users of the online special collection who have not been able to access the special collection online. In addition, Gary Price reports that the Northern Light News search will soon shut down. I have heard from other users that the e-mail alerts have already shut down.
Information Today has a newsbreak about the financial troubles of divine subsidiary RoweCom (divine is the owner of Northern Light.) You can read about that at http://www.infotoday.com/newsbreaks/nb030113-1.htm
What I think of this whole thing I can't repeat here, because I try to keep this newsletter PG rated. Let me just say it's a shame. I'm deeply disappointed that such a good search engine with some great ideas has come to such an ignominious (apparent) end on the Web (I presume they'll continue with enterprise offerings?)
If you're looking for free e-mail alerts, Yahoo's news alerts aren't bad. The New York Times alerts aren't bad either but you're limited to three. If you've got some money to spend, Tracerlock works very well.
