Highlights and Notes tool coming to Gale’s digital resources

We all know the rules – don’t take notes in your textbooks and don’t write in books you’ve checked out from the library, or else you might face a fine.

As eBooks and digital resources have become more and more popular, a similar problem has presented itself: how can a user easily take notes without opening a separate program? Gale has found the solution with our new Highlights and Notes tool, scheduled to launch on or around Tuesday, September 30, in Artemis Literary Sources, GVRL, In Context*, InfoTrac, Kids InfoBits, Literature Resource Center, LitFinder, and PowerSearch.

The new tool allows users of the digital resources listed above to select text from an eBook or article, highlight the important sections, add their own notes, and save it to a new “Highlighted Articles” page where it can be accessed or exported.

Researchers will utilize their critical thinking skills by finding important information in multiple sources and marking the relevant facts in each. Within the same session, the highlighted sections can be easily viewed, printed, downloaded, or sent via email. Highlights and Notes is the perfect tool for anyone conducting research in Gale’s products.
