SAGE eReference available for UK colleges and universities

Share this on social media:

A new agreement between JISC Collections and SAGE will allow staff, students and researchers in UK universities and colleges access to SAGE’s eReference collection.

An online collection of over 60 encyclopedias, SAGE’s eReference includes titles such as the SAGE Sourcebook of Modern Biomedical Devices; Encyclopedia of Children, Adolescents, and the Media; and the Encyclopedia of Social Psychology.

Based on the JISC Model Licence, the terms and conditions ensure that staff, students and researchers can make the best use of these online resources for education and research. For example, excerpts can be incorporated into traditional teaching and learning materials such as reading lists, course handouts, student assignments, study guides and presentations, as well as Virtual Learning Environments, electronic course packs and learning objects.

Clive Parry, sales and marketing director at SAGE said: ‘Our e-reference platform is fully searchable, with an easy-to-browse interface, providing students and researchers with a wealth of knowledge right at their fingertips. The package received rave reviews in the first year of launch, and we’re confident it will continue to be an indispensable resource in 2008.’
