Britannica School Adds ImageQuest Searches
Britannica Digital Learning has integrated its
Britannica ImageQuest database with its classroom information tool,
As a result of the integration, subscibers to both services will now be able to search ImageQuest's collection of nearly 3 million images
directly from within Britannica School. Users can now undertake integrated searches for articles, magazines, primary source documents and
high-quality, rights-cleared images.
"It makes perfect sense to integrate access to these two resources," said Michael Ross, general manager of Britannica Digital Learning and a
senior vice president at Encyclopaedia Britannica, Iin a prepared statement. "Students today are expected to demonstrate 'visual literacy'
along with reading comprehension, and to incorporate text and relevant images into reports, papers, and projects. ImageQuest gives them a vast
trove of additional images for every subject and shows them how to cite visual content properly."
