Questia Media Launches Its Student Research Service

Houston-based Questia Media, Inc. has announced the official launch of its Questia research service (http://www.questia.com), which is being marketed directly to college students. The service offers access to more than 30,000 titles in the humanities and social sciences disciplines and will grow to 50,000 titles within the next month. The company plans to further expand the service to about 250,000 titles in 2003. Users are able to search the service's entire collection for free, but a subscription fee is required to read the full-text of books and to use the research and writing tools.

The service enables subscribers to read the full text of hyperlinked sources; automatically creates footnotes and bibliographies; provides instant access to an online dictionary, thesaurus, and encyclopedia; allows users to personalize text with highlighting and margin notes; and allows papers to be saved online so they can be accessed anywhere, at any time. A free 48-hour trial of Questia is available until February 14 by visiting http://www.questia.com/launch. A three-tier subscription model provides flexibility for subscribers: annually for $149.95, monthly for $19.95, and short-term (48 hours) for $14.95.

Additional details about the service can be read in Paula J. Hane's interview with Questia's founder and CEO, Troy Williams, in the February issue of Information Today, as well as online at http://www.infotoday.com.
