Digital database provdes thousands of documents

Cengage Learning has introduced CourseReader, a customized, digital collection of content assets for the classroom that leverages Cengage Learning’s Gale databases, including its reference content and full-text magazine and newspaper articles. The product offers instructors thousands of articles and historical documents, including both primary and secondary sources, all in one location. Instructors select a series of materials from these databases for their courses, which are then compiled into an online collection for their students to access.

Currently, CourseReader is available for the following courses: Western Civilization, World History, U.S. History, American Government, Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Introduction to Literature with additional courses including Introduction to Sociology, Cultural Anthropology, American Literature, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Writing Across the Curriculum, and Argument to be available in early 2011.
