"This database is designed to solve all of your curricular research needs as the most regularly researched topics in U.S. high schools are available at the click of a button...It is a strong option for middle school or early high school students."

"We promote Student Resource in Context (SRiC) emphasizing the quality it represents in comparison with the often quite random Google search results retrieved by the young. It is very convenient for our young patrons (aged 17-20) that they can use SRiC from their homes, and it is quite customary for these students to write about topics relating to Anglo/American themes." "The topics section is much used and is very practical when one wants to find information relating to a subject. Also the convergence and presentation of different kinds of sources about the topics work well and seems to be well received by the users." "Students highly use SRiC as we hold one-to-one talks with the students, called 'Book en Bib' – Book a librarian for 30minutes where we explain to the students the ins and outs of gathering information, and if students chosen topics are relevant to SRiC the database is presented. This model renders a high degree of user motivation and subsequent usage. Would recommend subscribing to SRiC."

"As a librarian in a Danish High School I use Student Resources in Context (SRiC) a lot and encourage my students to use it. It doesn't need much persuasion as the interface is very good and easy to use, so once students know SRiC exists they are happy to use it. SRiC has some of the popular topics that the students often write about – Civil Rights, 1920s/1960s etc., Vietnam War, WW1, WW2, specific novels (1984, The Catcher in the Rye etc.), Jazz Age, Women's Rights etc. It can be used on different levels; either just the introduction (easy), reference articles (medium), or academic journals (difficult). Librarians love it and can't live without it. I recommend SRiC for schools and public libraries – it is an indispensable supplement to our book collection when a lot of students pick the same topic as it can be used by unlimited number of users at the same time."

“This is a fantastic resource, and it is highly recommended for school and public libraries. It brings a fresh and engaging perspective to the study of science by powerfully illustrating its place at the heart of our day-to-day lives and by demonstrating this through engaging multimedia resources. Students and teachers alike will find this a “go-to” resource for anything science-related. . . . Rather than going to many different places to find this information, it is all now available in one powerful, user-friendly dashboard.”
