Check this page for updates on the Georgetown University Press companion websites, which are hosted by Smart Sparrow. This page was last updated on March 31, 2020.
We recently learned from Smart Sparrow that the company has been acquired by Pearson. Here we will explain how you can continue to use your Georgetown University Press textbook and website content.
Unfortunately, Smart Sparrow will close down the companion websites on December 31, 2020.
We regret the inconvenience this decision by Smart Sparrow may cause you and are actively seeking a new website platform that will give teachers and students what they need. Once we have additional news to share, we will update you and also post information on this website.
We are offering other ways for you to access the homework exercises from the companion websites so that you can continue to teach effectively and without interruption using your textbook. Here is a guide to the current and forthcoming products.
- Smart Sparrow companion website access is now available free of charge and you can continue to use your website through December 31, 2020. There is no payment or code required to access the companion websites from now until Smart Sparrow closes them down. To continue on to the Companion Website on the Smart Sparrow platform, click below.
- Workbooks with homework exercises from the websites will be available for purchase beginning July 1, 2020. These will be sold in ebook format only. They will not be interactive but will enable you to take full advantage of the exercises integral to teaching with your textbook. Click on your textbook’s language from the menu above to be directed to the right link and to access multimedia and/or other resources associated with the book.
- Answer keys for workbooks will also be available for purchase as ebooks beginning July 1, 2020. Click on your textbook’s language from the menu above to be directed to the right link.
- Textbooks are now available to purchase separately—that is, without access codes to the companion website—and are priced to reflect this change. Click on your language and textbook from the menu above to be directed to the right link.
We are committed to supporting a smooth transition for you. If you have any questions, you are welcome to reach out to us.
