The Gale Virtual Reference Library provides features and functionality that no other provider does, including:

Always open, Always available

Gale Virtual Reference Library's unprecedented searchability empowers users to search a single eBook or your whole collection. Online searchability makes often-requested titles available to multiple users - and not just during business hours. Your library users can link to reference content through your OPAC or directly from the Table of Contents or Index page of a specific title. You're offering unlimited circulation of your reference collection with no checkout requirements and no turnaways. And cross-title searches mean faster, more comprehensive results.

Patrons and students will love these features:

  • The ability to navigate a list of subjects and titles from the homepage
  • Viewing titles without performing a search
  • Citation export (EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager)
  • Citation generator (APA, MLA, tagged format)
  • Bookmark generator - return to virtually any spot in the research via a persistent URL
  • Download toolbox provides ability to print, e-mail and download, plus:
  • On-demand content translation into more than 11 languages
  • On-demand interface translation into English, Spanish, French and Portuguese
  • ReadSpeaker technology (text-to-speech) allows text to be read aloud to users and downloaded in MP3 format

So much content - Publishing partners

If a publisher is known by the company it keeps, then Gale's reputation is unquestionably solid. Our publishing partners program allows us to offer a range of authoritative references by third-party publishers carefully selected based on their ability to deliver the high-quality, accurate and timely information you've come to expect from Gale. In addition to titles from our own imprints, Gale Virtual Reference Library offers titles from more than 60 partners including:

  • Cambridge University Press
  • DK (formerly Dorling Kindersley)
  • Facts on File
  • Greenwood Press
  • Kogan Page
  • Oxford University Press
  • SAGE Publications
  • And many others

Searching made simple

Gale Virtual Reference Library's basic search functionality is simple to use - researchers find terms through a keyword search, by document title or by searching an entire document. For research that requires a more advanced

approach, Gale Virtual Reference Library supports searches that combine criteria by:

  • Title
  • Keyword
  • Image captions
  • Publisher
  • Author
  • Full text
  • Publication date
  • ISBN
  • Starting page

Need to further refine your search? You can limit results of your search by source or by publication date; select from a subject list of all disciplines in your collection; or focus on reference directed at children's or general audience reading levels. With cross-title searching, you may browse a list of all titles sources in your collection and select up to 10 to add to your search query. Results are delivered at the article level (not a page at a time) in an HTML-based text and graphics format that's designed for speedy display and easy readability. With single-click ease, articles can be printed, e-mailed or displayed as PDF page layouts.
