Take a Sneak Peek at Gale’s new Interfaces

On April 2, Gale Cengage will launch their new interface for Gale Virtual Reference Library, InfoTrac Collections (both included in the SOLS Tier 1 core suite of e-resources) and In Context. These changes also affect the PowerSearch platform.

These enhancements are designed to:

  • Increase accessibility for those with visual impairments
  • Improve usability for both desktop and mobile researchers
  • Create a common user experience across some of Gale’s most popular resources

You can preview the new interface now by accessing any of the affected Gale products, and selecting the “Try New Experience” button visible in the top left corner:

Training staff from Gale Cengage will run a webinar demo of the new interfaces for SOLS libraries on April 22. Registration info can be found in the upcoming SOLS Training Bulletin. Until then, play around in the new sandbox as Gale staff would love to hear your feedback!
