Gale will release experience and design changes across its resources over the upcoming months, including enhanced user experiences and modified database names.

The first Gale database at the library to receive these enhancements is Biography In Context. The user interface has the new look & feel and the name is now Gale In Context: Biography. However, we will list the name as Biography (Gale In Context) on our pages.

The enhanced user experience includes:

  • The homepage provides a simplified and unified design across Gale products.
  • The search page provides a streamlined presentation of search results and emphasizes key pieces of information. Related searches and other “smart” tools deliver new methods of search and discovery.
  • The document page provides tools that are easily accessible in a “sticky” toolbar. The explorer panel groups supplemental resources for quick access and the modern design provides an intuitive experience

We will post information for other Gale database enhancements as they are released.

All databases can be accessed through our website using your ULID and password.
