Gale Encourages Researchers to Work With Its Data

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, announced that it would make content from its Gale Digital Collections available to academic researchers so they can use it for data mining and textual analysis. Gale customers can request the content—which comes from research databases such as Nineteenth Century Collections Online, newspaper archives, and other collections—for use in drawing new conclusions among disparate datasets and contributing to scholarly research.

Customers will also be able to access new textual analysis tools from within Gale’s digital archives: “Term cluster” and “term frequency” tools sort through text and index terms, as well as display visual representations of the data. They help researchers identify relationships between words and phrases.

“Gale is taking an important, industry-leading step by making content available for researchers in this way,” says Frank Menchaca, SVP for global product management at Gale. “Data mining coupled with our new curriculum alignment service, in which Gale maps an institution’s library resources to specific areas of faculty research and course focus, is helping our academic customers realize even more value for their investment with Gale.”
