Share this on social media:

SAGE and Corwin have announced that nearly 2,000 books are now available through iBooks for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac. The list includes titles in a number of subject areas including business, communication, education, journalism, law, political science, research methods, and psychology.

'As the educational landscape continues to evolve, SAGE is dedicated to meeting the needs of researchers, instructors, and learners of all types. We are committed to making the expert work of our authors available in formats that fit a variety of user preferences,' said Michele Sordi, vice president of editorial at SAGE. 'We are delighted to now expand the availability of our content through iBooks to reach the millions of iOS users worldwide.'
 
The companies say this new option will provide readers instant access to SAGE and Corwin resources as well as the flexibility to seamlessly sync bookmarks, notes, highlights and collections automatically across their Mac and iOS devices.
 
Corwin titles include professional development books for K12 educators on all topic areas including leadership, classroom instruction, school management and many more.
 
Lisa Shaw, Corwin vice president of publishing and professional learning, added: 'We know that teachers are very interested in getting professional learning content digitally. In a national survey conducted by Corwin last spring, 42 per cent of teachers said they read ebooks for professional learning, and 81 per cent said they seek out digital content that helps them improve their practice. Bringing this content to Mac and iOS devices makes Corwin books more widely accessible to educators.'
 
Teachers and administrators will have the option to make bulk purchases and control the content through managed book distribution.
