Gale Virtual Reference Library Voted ‘Best Overall Database’ by the readers of Library Journal

The November 1st issue of Library Journal presents the list of “Best Databases” as voted by readers in several categories. GVRL was selected as the “Best Overall” for its depth and features – it hosts more than 9,000 full-text titles from Gale and more than 80 other publishers. GVRL’s user-friendly features include an interface that is available in more than 30 languages, ReadSpeaker technology (text-to-speech functionality) for 19 languages, article translation capability, a multi-page viewer for a book-like experience, and the ability to download articles as PDFs to eReaders or MP3 players. Gale also offers promotional help for customers including widgets, MARC records and other tools.

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, plans to commemorate the win with an unprecedented giveaway.
