CHICAGO, Aug. 2, 2012
CHICAGO , Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Questia, the premier online library and research tool for students, announced today that they have unveiled their new website featuring an expanded library, improved navigation for finding research faster and an interactive reader that will make the research experience easier for students. To celebrate its site launch, Questia is giving away one thousand week-long access codes for free to the first thousand people to like them on Facebook, through the month of August. With school starting soon, go to facebook.com/questiaonlinelibrary to claim your code now before they run out.
Questia has for long been the premier online destination for credible books and peer-reviewed journals and articles on a wide range of subjects, integrated with citation and organizational tools. Students consistently have a difficult time finding trustworthy sources to use for research papers and projects, and professors continually struggle helping students properly cite these sources in their work. Over the past 10 years, over 1 million students and researchers have accessed Questia to find quality sources and research, and write better papers faster.
Now, Questia has made the research paper process even easier by increasing the size of its online library by over 33 percent, developing search filters to narrow down exactly what you need from the sources professors trust, the addition of dictionary and thesaurus tools, and creating an intuitive new interface that integrates all your reading material and notes in one place. Plus, members will soon have access to their brand new research tutorials including videos and guides on how to write a professor approved paper. Visit www.Questia.com to experience the new Questia.
“We're providing a comprehensive set of tools and tutorials to make the research paper writing process easier for students,” says Gary Jeppsen , Senior Product Manager of Questia. “With the combination of research topics to help students get started and generate ideas for their paper, the citable sources to reference in papers, and the research tools and tutorials to put it all together, Questia helps students write better papers faster.”
Jeppsen continues, “We've created tools for making the research process more efficient so students can spend their time digesting the research and thinking; analyzing and interpreting information—maximizing their time spent learning.”
