New MindTap Feature Helps Instructors Curate Reference Content for History and Political Science Courses

A separate ereader can be costly for college students, yet they are an essential part of many courses. A new feature for MindTap can help with just that. CourseReader for MindTap, is now available through the Instructor’s Resource Center. This new feature provides access to Gale’s authoritative library reference content to aid in the development of important supplemental readers for history and political science courses.

Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, has been providing research and education resources for libraries for more than 60 years. This new feature capitalizes on Cengage Learning’s unique ability to bring Gale’s authoritative library content into the classroom.

New MindTap Feature


Search by key term, or simply browse and filter results by subcollection. Choose readings, videos, and images for immediate addition to MindTap.

Every MindTap in History and Political Science has access to a CourseReader database of readings, images and video from the resource center.  Until now, these resources were exclusively available in a separate digital product. Now through MindTap, faculty have the option to choose from thousands of primary and secondary sources, images, and videos to enhance their course. This capability can replace a separate reader and conveniently keeps all course materials in one place within a single MindTap.

The selections within CourseReader are curated by experts and designed specifically for introductory courses in the following course areas: Western Civilization, World History, U.S. History, American Government, and International Relations. Learn how to add content to courses.
