News Limited and Gale (Cengage Learning) announced a new partnership. For the first time, undergraduate students can access full text News Limited news and articles, delivered with their course content, integrated with their textbook.
News Limited publications including The Australian, are now part of Cengage Learning’s Search me! This online database enables students to access news, journal articles, magazines and ebooks tailored to their specific subject area. Students access the content using a code that comes with their textbook.
Every morning, that day’s news flows into Search me! - from The Australian, The Courier-Mail, The Advertiser (Adelaide), and more than 100 other newspapers and magazines.
“This is the future of university education,” says Dale Eru, General Manager of Newsource, a division of News Limited. “Effective and fast delivery of news is what we’re all about. University students are savvy consumers of media and tomorrow’s world leaders. Now we can integrate our full text news into their learning.”
Search me!’s popularity has exceeded all expectations. More than 60,000 university students have used Search me! in universities around Australia and New Zealand.
“The wonderful thing about Search me! is it contextualises the material in their learning,” says Maryce Johnstone from Gale / Cengage Learning. “Students aren’t just reading the paper. Instead, they are applying up-to-the-minute news and articles to their university studies. This is really revolutionary stuff. With the partnership with News Limited, they have access to Australia and the world’s best news – integrated with their studies.”
Cengage Learning is one of the world’s largest providers of learning solutions for the school and higher education markets for Australia and New Zealand.
GALE is part of Cengage Learning, providing information, research and analysis to students, business and general interest.
