Questia offering free online library subscription to every high school in U.S.

Questia Media is offering a free annual subscription to the head librarian in every secondary school in America, Troy Williams, president and CEO, announced at the CoSN conference. According to Williams, Questia offers students, researchers, educators, and librarians access to more than 54,000 books and more than 1 million articles. For $20 per student per year, he said, schools of any size, location, and resource level can provide library content equivalent to that available in the best endowed elite academies. The company’s online library, he said, provides 24/7 access to the world’s largest online collection of books and journal articles in the humanities and social sciences, plus magazine and newspaper articles. To complement the online library, Williams said, Questia offers a range of search, note-taking, and writing tools. These digital tools help students locate the most relevant information on their topics quickly, quote and cite correctly, and create properly formatted footnotes and bibliographies automatically.
