Gale has long been known for publishing authoritative directories on
companies, publishers, associations and more. At long last, these
directories are now available digitally in the Gale Directory Library.
This new platform takes these detailed references off the shelf and
makes them available at the click of a mouse 24/7 to all your users,
whether they're at the library or at home.
With Gale Directory Library, users can experience state-of-the-art
functionality to perform a range of data searching, sorting and
exporting. Users can access data from a single directory, or
cross-search multiple directories. And libraries can buy only those
directories that they need -- for generating mailing lists, conducting
research, and analyzing trends across categories and over time.
Since libraries are buying digital directory editions rather than
subscribing to a data feed, older editions remain in a collection. Thus
users can look up historical information as well as cross-search
multiple editions to analyze trends over time. In fact, backfile content
is available for certain directories so users can perform these searches
right away. These innovative features, unlike anything seen previously
with our directory products, make Gale Directory Library the essential
tool for research and marketing alike.
Classic, award-winning titles like Ward's Business Directory of U.S.
Private and Public Companies, Encyclopedia of Associations and Gale
Directory of Publications and Broadcast Media become not only much more accessible, but also more powerful, with expanded data sets (when applicable) and search, sort and export features.
The Gale Directory Library will have a total of 14 directories available
by the end of November 2007. Come to the FEDLINK training / demo on October 25th and see this exciting new platform for yourself. All
attendees will receive a free, 30-day trial to the Gale Directory
Light snacks and coffee, provided by Gale, will be served at each
Please forward to colleagues who might have an interest in the subject matter.
See you there!
