Gale's New Technology Boosts Research Relevance

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, launched a new technology that links current newspaper, magazine, and journal articles with contextual references from within ebooks on Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL). This InterLink technology connects Gale’s resources via document-level hyperlinking so researchers can find content without knowing a specific source. InterLink’s cross-searching leverages Gale’s subject indexing and results ranking algorithms, facilitating relevant discovery. It also helps libraries by driving usage of their GVRL ebook collections.

“This integrated and intelligent cross-search will help users thrive in today’s education landscape, and our customers agree. In a recent survey, this enhancement was among the most requested by librarians and thought to deliver the highest value to users,” says Gale VP and general manager Jim Draper. 

InterLink is available for free across all of InfoTrac’s periodical solutions and will soon expand to other resources.
