Questia Announces Version 2

Questia Media, Inc. (http://www.questia.com) has announced the introduction of Questia version 2.0, which includes a collection of more than 60,000 full-text titles—nearly double the size of its version 1.0 collection launched in January. Version 2.0 also improves Questia's tools, which enable users to personalize books by highlighting and making notes in them and to write better papers by automatically creating footnotes and bibliographies in various formats. Since the service's January launch [see http://www.infotoday.com/it/mar01/news9.htm], Questia has conducted extensive market research among student subscribers and has met with many professors and librarians. The company has used that feedback as well as the advice of its Corporate Advisory Council to improve upon the Questia service.

Version 2.0 includes new features such as an increase in the library from 35,000 to more than 60,000 books and journal articles; new tools for subscribers, including an automatic view of the recently used books, a personal bookshelf for storing and retrieving favorite books; a customizable home page; reorganization of tools and functions around the three main areas—Search, Read, and Work—to improve the site's usability; and faster search and navigation between books and within books.

The cost of accessing the entire Questia collection and using the research tools remains $19.95 a month and $149.95 annually. Special promotional pricing is offered through partners, including America Online, Britannica.com, and The Princeton Review, Inc.'s Web site, Review.com.
