Gale has released experience and design changes across its resources. The library's Gale databases subscriptions now have enhanced user experiences and modified database names.

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.
