Charlottesville, VA, February 5th, 2015 – Silverchair announced today the launch of the Clinical Research Education Library (CREd Library) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) on Silverchair’s SCM6 Platform. CREd Library is a dynamic collection of critical resources developed by ASHA that utilizes Silverchair’s SCM6 platform for semantic technology and a tailored user-experience. It was developed to facilitate the advancement of high-quality clinical practice research by connecting emerging and established scientists with collections of resources on topics critical to research in the communication sciences and disorders (CSD) domain.
Supported in-part through a grant awarded to ASHA by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), CREd Library focuses on a unique subset of clinical research by delivering resources relevant to clinical practice research. The dynamic collection includes an ever expanding collection of various types of content including tools, instructional articles, expert perspectives, and multimedia.
“CREd Library is an exciting example of product development capabilities of the SCM6 Platform,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “It leverages the content capabilities and semantic technologies natively built into the SCM6 Platform to create a continuous publishing environment with a myriad of content-types – including new content types that are unique to this new product – to deliver valuable resources on a cutting edge interface to scientists and researchers that will help meet the growing demand for clinical practice research.”
