BookRags Challenges Users to "Research Anything"

August 30, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News, the research website of choice for high school and college students, has more than doubled its content to 4.2 million pages, increasing both the breadth and depth of materials available, with more free content available than ever before. BookRags' focus on well-cited content promotes student research and appropriate citation over plagiarism.

"The Internet is filled with 'essay mills' that tempt students to copy essays. Our site includes clear citations from over 100 respected sources, and our depth of content allows students to research virtually any topic," says Jim Yagmin, the company's vice president. "Our new content and design encourages users to recognize different, valid perspectives that can exist on a single topic. An entry on 'obesity' from an encyclopedia on genetics will come across quite differently than a health journal article. We're helping students put those perspectives side-by-side to create their own conclusions on an issue."

"Our new design is built to change how people conduct research online," said Jim Yagmin, the company's vice president. "For example, a search for 'acid rain' presents 135 pages of content across 13 unique products, including summaries, statistics, essays, and a dictionary definition. BookRags fills the information gap between short encyclopedia entries and time-consuming library research."

Not forgotten in the new design is BookRags' popular literature study guide series. "We now have more than 3,800 literature guides online, which is the single largest collection anywhere. Combined with our supporting products, we can fulfill the needs of any level of literature student. Our content on 'Hamlet' alone contains more than 3,000 pages."

Users are invited to research anything at is the Internet's largest education website, featuring 4.2 million pages of content from over 100 unique sources. Content includes study guides, essays, criticism, encyclopedias, reference works, primary sources, and student-friendly tools, such as an interactive periodic table.
