An Easier Way to Access and Use Your Gale Products

2 min read

| By Gale Staff |

We’re thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of the Gale Product Menu (formerly known as the Gale Common Menu). On Friday, August 28, 2020, Gale customers will have the power to quickly identify and access all their Gale products through a completely reimagined and intuitive interface.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Find and access all your Gale products in one place.
  • Browse your Gale research databases in a comprehensive A‒Z list, or narrow down by product family.
  • Search across multiple databases via cross-search experiences from within the menu. Note: Customers must have access to at least one cross-searchable product.
  • Filter the list of visible products by searching product names and descriptions.

The Gale Product Menu is accessible within Gale products by selecting the View Product Menu option on the toolbar. You can also use the following address to link directly to the new menu: https://link.gale.com/apps/menu?u=[LOCATION-ID].

ADDITIONAL ENHANCEMENTS

We are also happy to announce updates to the Gale Power Search interface, which now lets users choose which products to cross-search directly from the home and Advanced Search pages. Customers can still decide which products they want to cross-search by default from within Gale Admin.

In addition to these enhancements, customers now have access to streamlined product URLs through the Gale support site. These new direct URLs are shorter and use a consistent formula across all Gale products, making them easier to remember and reducing the chances of broken links when copying and pasting.

Although we encourage you to start using the new URLs, you aren’t required to take any action; all existing links will continue to redirect.

The enhancements make it easier for users to find and access Gale products available today—and discover additional products and tools for the future.
