Cengage Files Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: ‘Normal Business Operations’ Will Continue
by George H. Pike
Citing nearly $6 billion of debt, Cengage Learning filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition in federal court last week. The bankruptcy petition is part of an effort to restructure its outstanding debt, with a goal of eliminating as much as $4 billion of debt. The petition includes all of Cengage Learning's wholly owned U.S. subsidiaries, although not its non-U.S. subsidiaries. By filing the Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Cengage will remain in business during the bankruptcy process, with day-to-day operations and personnel largely unchanged, and it expects to continue with product development and innovation.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
