For college instructors, this company, a division of Bell & Howell
Information and Learning, offers on-line course packs. Their material
comes from ProQuest, UMI, and others, and it includes " journals,
periodicals, newspapers and original works." The contents of these packs
are either selected by them, or they can be customized by the instructor
(all this occurs on-line, of course). They also clear copyrights, and
the resulting course pack is available on-line to students.
For students, they put the packs on-line, and they also offer search
engines for their material.
