Access Innovations, Inc. is proud to announce that one of its devoted staff members has crossed a large indexing and abstracting milestone.

Chief taxonomist Alice Redmond-Neal has worked on over 50 projects for Access Innovations, from the most general to the most specific, but none has she worked on more closely than her long-standing work for the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP). For years, Alice has written abstracts for and indexed their articles, and has now crossed over the 30,000-abstract mark. Regarding this feat, Margie Hlava, President of Access Innovations, stated, “Alice has long proven herself to be a valued employee, a skilled taxonomist, and most importantly, a great friend to the company. From everyone at Access Innovations, I want to congratulate her and thank her for her dedicated work.”

Alice remarks, “I am very honored to have worked for EB for so long on this project. It’s important to note that many people have worked on this project, but their trust in the quality of my work and the strong service that Access Innovations offers is well noted. It doesn’t hurt that we have built such a warm and friendly relationship with the client, as well!”

Since 1986, Access Innovations has been producing the Employee Benefits INFOSOURCE database, which provides a centralized resource for timely, comprehensive information about all facets of employee benefit plans. Access Innovations indexes and abstracts articles from more than 350 journals and newsletters and, in the nearly 30 years since the project began, Access Innovations has produced over 100,000 abstracts; Alice herself has been an integral part of nearly a third of that work.

Access Innovations looks forward to the continued growth of the INFOSOURCE database and waits eagerly as Alice inches toward the next milestone.
