Gale Gives Students Easier Access to Primary Sources; Starts Arabic Digitization Project

Gale will integrate Gale Artemis: Primary Sources into Cengage Learning’s MindTap elearning platform, which will bring library content directly into students’ learning paths, facilitate collaboration between librarians and faculty members, drive usage of library collections, and position the library closer to classroom engagements.

Academic institutions using MindTap and Gale Digital Collections can link the two resources via MindTap’s platform. This will allow instructors to select specific primary sources from Gale Artemis for use in readings, quizzes, projects, and other classroom activities. Students will have access to materials through a single interface so they spend less time searching.

Additionally, Gale announced plans for a digitization program of Arabic-language primary sources and reference materials, composed of millions of pages of collections from leading institutions in the Middle East and West. The first collection (of content from the 15th–19th centuries) is titled Early Arabic Printed Books from the British Library and will be released in December 2015 as a full-text, searchable online archive. The next two parts of the collection will be released in 2016 and 2017.

For more information, read the press releases.
