Boston, MA. KnowledgeCite, Inc., announced today that it has partnered with storage giant EMC Corporation to ensure state-of-the-art web hosting capabilities for its multi-disciplinary digital reference product, the KnowledgeCite Library. KnowledgeCite president, Peter Ciuffetti said: "Providing this web hosting infrastructure—via EMC—is a major piece of the KnowledgeCite puzzle; it brings us a giant step closer to making the KnowledgeCite Library available to academic and research libraries in the U.S. and abroad."

"We did not cut any corners here," added Mr. Ciuffetti. "A fast and reliable web hosting operation is critical to the value of the KnowledgeCite Library.
