Library Journal Reviews ResearchReady

In case you missed it, School Library Journal gave a stellar review of ResearchReady earlier this month. We are truly honored and so grateful for Jeff’s enthusiastic review.

More great news arrived last week when we learned there is another review of ResearchReady in the May 15 print issue of Library Journal! Bonnie Swoger, science librarian at SUNY Geneseo and blogger for Scientific American, checked out all of the robust features of ResearchReady.

Swoger was impressed by the user experience, which our talented developers have worked hard to perfect:

  • “This simplicity [of design] makes the tutorials much easier to use than more tech-heavy competitors. Users cans click through lesson pages even on slow Internet connections, the tutorials work well on tablets and are even usable on mobile phones.”
  • “The lessons are structurally simple…[t]he lack of flashy animations works well: users are less likely to encounter technical isssues and the content is presented in a straightforward manner that makes it easy to navigate.”

Most importantly… what is the final verdict? We have her recommendation!

“I was impressed with the content of the tutorials and the ease of use of the system. I would recommend ResearchReady to high schools and colleges, especially those with a small staff of instruction librarians or a large number of online courses.”

The review also includes an overview of the ResearchReady curriculum and basic pricing options. If you’d like to learn more or set up a complimentary trial, let us know.

There are several colleges and universities already using ResearchReady, and we are so appreciative for Bonnie Swoger’s approval, and for Library Journal featuring it in its May 15 publication. Check it out today! If you have a subscription to Library Journal, you can also read the review in its mobile app. (You can keep up with Bonnie Swoger through Twitter or her blog.)
