Gale to Bring National Geographic Treasures to Libraries

Gale, part of Cengage Learning and a publisher of research and reference resources for libraries, schools, and businesses, and the National Geographic Society, one of the world’s largest nonprofit scientific and educational organizations, announced an extended agreement to create additional library products as part of a new product suite, National Geographic Virtual Library.

Earlier this year, Gale announced the National Geographic Magazine Archive, 1888-1994, for libraries, which included all issues of the magazine for its first 107 years, fully searchable through an intuitive interface. The partnership has now been extended to provide all National Geographic magazine issues from 1995 onwards, as well as access to a new virtual reference collection of National Geographic books, maps, videos, images, and National Geographic Traveler magazine (2010-current).

Some of the notable National Geographic resources made available as part of the agreement include titles such as Polar Obsession, by Paul Nicklen, and Sizing Up the Universe: The Cosmos in Perspective, by J. Richard Gott; videos exploring topics such as alternative energy and the lifestyle of beluga whales; and destination guides and expedition maps.

This is the first time all these resources have been offered to libraries together in digital and searchable form. The extension of the virtual library provides the high quality that librarians expect from the National Geographic brand. These new resources will be created on the same platform as the National Geographic Magazine Archive, 1888-1994, and will work seamlessly together. These new resources will be available to customers starting in fall 2012.
