Over the past five years, it has been amazing to see the stone industry's growth in terms of Information Technology. The Internet has been a valuable tool in the field for the trade. Buyers and sellers of stone are using digital technology to submit very accurate images of stone across thousands of miles in an instant. Fabricators are not only using computerized technology in their shops, but also in the field for templating. And perhaps more than ever, computers are being regarded a valuable sourcing guide for industry professionals.

At Stone World, our Web site at www.stoneworld.com is receiving more traffic than ever, and it is extremely gratifying to know that we are able to help facilitate industry growth. That being said, Stone World's parent company, BNP Media, announces the forthcoming launch of BNP Media LINX: a “robust” user-friendly online search engine, powered by Google, that crawls across the varied industries served by BNP Media publications - including a range of architecture and construction titles.

LINX is an all-encompassing tool that provides users with immediate access to logged, organized and fully searchable past-issue archives, industry information, classifieds, products and services, plus much more.

LINX is designed to benefit industry professionals by offering the latest news concerning the stone industry and beyond, and users will be able to obtain access to BNP Media's vast array of industry-specific titles, events, award-winning columnists and superior information that we've been providing for over 77 years.

BNP Media LINX can be found at www.bnpmedialinx.com, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
