Starting next month, users will be able to engage with the rare and unique material in Early Arabic Printed Books from the British Library in new ways when the platform is upgraded to a new experience.

Based on the culmination of years of research and firsthand feedback from faculty members, the updates to Early Arabic Printed Books from the British Library will provide new and more-advanced research capabilities without disrupting the workflows of seasoned researchers.

In the upgraded platform, you can expect to find:

  • Smarter Search Results: Take advantage of more filtering options in search results; subject expansion*, which looks for pseudonyms and synonyms of your keyword; and the Topic Finder text-analysis tool. *Available on English language texts
  • A Streamlined User Interface: Consistent with other Gale products, the new platform delivers an engaging experience that allows quick access to search tools; relevant content; and collaborative features like Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive.
  • Improved Accessibility: The upgraded experience is backed by features maintained for web accessibility standards to ensure equity of access by users of all abilities.
  • An Enhanced Advanced Search: The updated Advanced Search interface provides useful tips and information to meet researchers where they are and help them get the most out of their search experiences.
  • An Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Panel: As a new option in the Explore panel when you access a document, the OCR feature allows you to see the machine-converted version of the text in an article.

No action is required by your institution—your product links will seamlessly redirect to the new interface when the updated experience is launched.
