Regardless of your curriculum offerings - whether that includes online courses, continuing education, or in-person classes - ProQuest can now assist with providing copyright-compliant and reduced-cost materials to support them.
Through its affiliate Bowker, ProQuest has acquired Palo Alto-based SIPX (which originally stood for the Stanford Intellectual Property Exchange), a unique digital course materials solution. Its mission is to eliminate duplicate spending on course packs by connecting students to materials that have already been purchased and are available through their university library.
Kurt Sanford, ProQuest CEO, said, “[This] service enables universities to further leverage the investments their libraries have made in their research collections. With our support, customer relationships and investment, we will rapidly increase the availability and richness of SIPX’s services.”
