Gale is excited to let you know we have made it easier for academic researchers to access its scholarly content anytime, anywhere.
Through a new partnership with Google Scholar, Gale has integrated Google’s Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA) into its Academic OneFile periodical database, ensuring users seamlessly experience uninterrupted access to its authoritative content, from any off-campus location or device.
CASA is an enhanced authentication service that builds upon Google Scholar’s Subscriber Links service. Without CASA, Subscriber Links in Google Scholar search results are based on IP authentication. This is great for on-campus research, but falls short for remote access, becoming a frustrating experience for users. With CASA integration, remote researchers have the same Subscriber Links and unrestricted access to Gale content as on-campus researchers, from anywhere in the world.
CASA is a free service and academic libraries that are included in Google Scholar Subscriber Links will automatically take advantage of the service when accessing Gale resources. Learn more.
