In an effort to better connect your library’s resources to the user workflow, we are pleased to announce the integration of Google Apps for Education into our Gale In Context suite of products. Now available is the ability for researchers to seamlessly login using their Google Account credentials and to easily download and share articles using tools like Drive and Docs.
As a Google for Education Partner,* Gale continues to evolve to meet the needs of today’s researchers by delivering the educational technology, instructional tools and content to help all users be more successful in school, work and life.
Through this partnership, Gale’s In Context suite of resources now features:
- Seamless User Login: users can login to their Gale In Context resource using their Google Account credentials
- Integrated Google tools: once logged in, users can easily share and download articles—including their highlights and notes—using Google Apps for Education tools like Drive and Docs
- Improved Access: schools and libraries can provide students with access to their resources via apps available for free download through the Chrome Web Store and Google Apps for Education. These product apps will provide an additional way and make it even easier for students, schools and public library patrons to easily access resources from their tablets and mobile devices.
View the changes today within any of the following Gale In Context resources: Biography, Canada, Opposing Viewpoints, Science, Student Resources, U.S. History and World History.
As we look to improve student productivity, increase engagement and foster collaboration for all users, similar apps, authentication and tools will become available in other leading Gale product families including the GVRL, InfoTrac, and Kids InfoBits platforms.
