Mango: A+ for Academic Value

October 16, 2012 / by Rachel Reardon

Fact: libraries love Mango, and Mango loves libraries. But when it comes to our academic clients, we’ve found that Mango’s broad appeal makes it a hit not only at the library, but with many other programs as well.

Here’s just a few of the on-campus programs that Mango can benefit:

Career Center: As a professional development tool, Mango helps students and alumni build in-demand language skills for the job market. According to, the average pay range for bilinguals is approximately 5-20 percent more per hour than the base rate for their position.

Study Abroad Program: Mango is the ideal resource to help students prepare for study abroad, volunteer trips, or international internship programs, especially for languages not taught on campus. Did you know we offer over 50 foreign and ESL language courses?

International Student Programs: International and foreign exchange students benefit from Mango’s large selection of ESL (English as a second/foreign language) courses.

Alumni Association: Unlike most other databases, Mango is available to Alumni Associations through your library at no additional access fee. Alumni Associations can offer Mango as an attractive membership perk.

Faith-Based Organizations: Mango can help members prepare for international missionary or volunteer trips. Also, our specialized religious courses appeal to those who wish to explore Biblical texts in their original language.

So whether preparing to study abroad in China, trying to learn Spanish as a resume booster, or helping international students acquire practical English skills, Mango is the go-to resource to help students, alumni, and even faculty succeed in their mission to learn a foreign language.
