Gale to Unveil New Times Digital Archive
Gale, part of Cengage Learning, is unveiling the all-new Times Digital Archive, 1785-2006, at Online Information 2011, in London, (Nov. 29-Dec. 1). Adding 20 years to the popular 1785-1985 edition, the new publication offers researchers nearly 70,000 issues and more than 11 million articles on the cross-searchable Gale NewsVault platform. Also coming to NewsVault is the complete run of The Sunday Times Digital Archive, 1822-2006, to be released in spring 2012.
Gale’s first digital archive ever to be released continues to be its best-selling and best-known property: The Times Digital Archive. Nine years from its original release, a new extended version provides 600,000 new pages of invaluable content covering the tumultuous period at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, all in a new, intuitive user interface. Researchers can now automatically create citations and export them to bibliographic software, such as EndNote and RefWorks. A Gale account allows users to save searches and marked items across sessions. A new image viewer allows users to manipulate images more easily and view articles and whole pages on a full screen. The archive supports research in Business, Economics, Humanities, Industry, Interdisciplinary Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Genealogy, Journalism, Theology, Science/Medicine, World History, Art and Architecture, among others.
From major world and British events to the stories of everyday life in the 19th and 20th centuries, The Sunday Times Digital Archive, 1822-2006 offers more than 800,000 pages of thoughtful analysis and commentary on the week’s news and society at large. Famous for its cutting-edge investigative journalism, the newspaper broke many of the key stories of the 20th century. The newspaper has featured a regular column on births, deaths, and marriages throughout its history, making it an excellent resource for family history research. In the 19th century, the paper even included a regular Freemasonry column, as well as publishing details of the graduates from Sandhurst.
