Beginning in October, the option to export MLA 7 citations will no longer be supported in Gale resources. Why is this happening? It has a lot to do with what our customers tell us and what features are being used. We sat down with Gale eBooks on GVRL product manager Kristin Fust to better understand:
“At Gale, we regularly review usage of our product features and functionality to ensure we are focusing our efforts on the tools that users find most valuable. Removing MLA 7 from the citation tools within Gale products allows us to support the most recent citation styles.
Since MLA 8 was released in April 2016, we’ve seen a steady decrease in the use of MLA 7, as more and more customers have become familiar with and adopted MLA 8.
MLA 8 will continue to be available, as well as APA and Chicago styles.”
So there you have it. Stay informed about updates made to your Gale resources by following the product updates category of the Gale Blog.
