Corwin, an imprint of SAGE Publications specializing in books and multimedia resources for Pre K-12 professionals (including principals, administrators, teachers, and consultants), is launching its new eLibraries product today at the Learning Forward Annual Conference in Boston. eLibraries consists of topic collections of ebooks that provide online access to Corwin’s robust professional development content. The first three topic collections focus on Common Core, Bullying Prevention, and Cultural Proficiency. Others focus on Assessment, Differentiation, English Language Learning, and Response to Intervention.
According to a Corwin press release, each eLibrary collection features between ten and 12 ebook titles that provide districts and schools with the tools to implement professional development training and initiatives related to each topic. “Corwin eLibraries offers educators the convenience of having all their PD resources in one place,” said Mike Soules, president of Corwin. “Districts can design a customized PD plan to direct learning in key areas based on the titles that have been specially selected by our trusted editorial team. In addition, because Corwin eLibraries can be accessed by every staff member in a district, it represents an exceptional value compared to purchasing books individually.”
Some notable features of the platform include:
- Unlimited, simultaneous access
- Advanced search tools, including full-text keyword searches across multiple ebook titles
- Ability to save searches
- Ability to create and save notes for easy reference
- Ability to print pages and notes
Corwin has been in the business of producing professional development literature for educators since 1990, when it first launched as an imprint of SAGE. In addition to producing a variety of books, Corwin is also known for producing multi-media kits and professional learning events.
