Gale Expands Integration of Google Apps for Education into Popular Product Lines
Positions Research Technology Directly into User Workflow and Drives Collaboration from the Library to the Classroom
Farmington Hills, Mich., Nov. 5, 2015 — Putting research technology directly into user workflow, Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, has expanded the integration of Google Apps for Education – Gmail, Classroom, Drive, Docs, and more – into its most-popular product lines. Researchers can seamlessly log into many of their school or library’s Gale resources with their Google Account credentials and easily save, share, and download content (including bookmarks and their personal highlights and notes) using Gmail, Drive, and Docs. In December, the new Google Classroom share button will be integrated with these resources, allowing educators to seamlessly link third party content, including Gale content, to classroom assignments.
“Researchers at all levels are already comfortable using Google so putting Gale content directly into their workflow will help make it easier to use library resources to improve the research and learning experience,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager, Gale. “With more than 50 million Google Apps for Education users worldwide, this integration offers tremendous potential to improve student learning.”
Google tools are now integrated into many Gale products:
- Research In Context and all In Context resources (excluding Global Issues In Context)
- Infotrac including Powersearch
- Contemporary Authors Online
- MLA International Bibliography
- Book Review Index Plus
- Literature Resource Center
- Kids InfoBits (coming this winter)
In addition, users can also access the same Gale resources purchased by their subscribing institution through the free Chrome app versions available for download in the Chrome Web Store (and soon to be available in Google Play for Education in 2016).
