The Gale Virtual Reference Library takes eBooks to the next level.
With Gale proprietary content and dozens of 3rd party partner publishers (like Sage, Wiley, Bernan Press, Cambridge, Idea Group Publishing, Scarecrow Press and many more), it's an interface and content different from any other eBook platform you've ever used.
Begin with the best features of eBooks: You purchase titles one eBook at a time and provide them to your users online - so you can offer remote, 24-7 access. No specialized reader or hardware are required - just a standard Web browser and the Adobe Acrobat(r) plug-in.
Gale Virtual Reference Library's powerful delivery platform puts your
reference content into circulation. Researchers will have the power to:
* Search and share results
* Create mark lists
* Track research through search history
* Article-level language translation feature
* And more
An amazingly efficient common user interface - Upgrades to Gale Virtual
Reference Library allow users to easily perform cross-searching between their eBook collection and their InfoTrac periodical databases. What users now will find is a complete evolution of different product
interfaces and content into one simple, common user interface. These
enhancements also reduce the time and energy librarians would typically spend training for new resources while simplifying the materials needed to learn how to use our databases.
Seamless content delivery - Thomson Gale's new delivery platform is
currently being incorporated into all our databases, beginning with Gale
Virtual Reference Library. You'll find this is a truly unique delivery
system, different from any other eBook platform, because it eliminates
the need for repetitive searches among different databases.

Light snacks and coffee, provided by Thomson Gale, will be served at
See you there!
