In addition to the Ask an Expert Hotline feature, the Connector includes an Online Portal that includes libraries and databases of technical, business and engineering documents and resources. The Online Portal also includes Targeted Research Tools (for patent searches, MSDS documents, Company Profile information, Workplace Posters, and more) and Benchmark Industry Data.
