CQ Press Introduces The CQ Researcher en espa�ol

WASHINGTON, DC, February 4, 2004 - CQ Press today announced the recent
launch of The CQ Researcher en espa�ol, the Spanish-language edition of
its leading online resource and award-winning publication, The CQ
Researcher. Building on an 80-year tradition, CQ Researcher en espa�ol was
developed to respond to America's growing population of Spanish-speaking
and bilingual library users.

There is no other current affairs product of this scale available for the
Spanish-speaking library patrons. "CQ Researcher en espa�ol reflects our
goal at CQ Press to provide the nation's expanding Hispanic population the
same non-partisan reporting on today's public policy controversies that
our readers depend on in CQ Researcher," says Kathryn Su�rez, Director of
Reference Publishing at CQ Press.

CQ Researcher en espa�ol provides in-depth, balanced coverage of political
and social issues, with reports on topics in health, international
affairs, education, the environment, technology and the U.S. economy. CQ
Press offers CQ Researcher en espa�ol in both print and online versions.

Each CQ Researcher en espa�ol report is a unique work, investigated and
written by a seasoned journalist, then translated into Spanish. The
Spanish-language edition is published on the same day as the English
edition and simultaneously posted online. Four of the 36 reports to be
published in 2004 will be written in Spanish on topics of concern to U.S.
Latinos. Each 12,000 word, single-themed report includes background
information, a bibliography of key sources, chronology of important events
related to the report's theme and pro/con statements from representatives
of opposing positions.

CQ Researcher en espa�ol's online version provides users access not only
to the latest report, but also earlier reports. By March 2004, CQ
Researcher en espa�ol's online version will offer more than 40 reports,
with many on topics such as education, health as well as issues of
particular concern to minorities and youth in America. Within the next
year, the online version of CQ Researcher en espa�ol will provide access
to over 60 reports.

In spring 2004, the online version of CQ Researcher en espa�ol will be
enhanced to allow users to activate a bilingual interface, enabling an
English-speaking librarian to introduce the resource to a Spanish-speaking
user. Users whose institution subscribes to CQ Researcher Online will also
have the ability to link from each section of the Spanish edition of a
report to the corresponding English-language report and vice versa.
Similarly, users will be able to view the report sections in a parallel
display, with English on one side of the screen and Spanish on the other.

Published by CQ Press, The CQ Researcher is used by librarians and
researchers at thousands of university, public, and school libraries as
well as by many leading media organizations. CQ Researcher was a recipient
of the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi Award for Journalism Excellence in 1999
for a 10-part series on health care and the American Bar Association's
2002 Silver Gavel Award for a nine-part series on liberty and justice
