Gale today announced plans to unify, over the coming years, its digital humanities collections on one platform as an online curated primary source and literary collection.
Artemis offers users the ability to search across both primary and secondary materials as well as different subjects and genres. It also adds term clusters and term-graphing tools to allow users to conduct new kinds of analysis on familiar content sets,thematic subject indexing to aid in content discovery, and interface updates that conform to today’s design standards, including sharing and collaboration tools.
For example, a student seeking information on dramatic works performed in nineteenth century London, through separate searches, would be able to find: curated critical commentary from Gale’s Drama Criticism series, actor biographies from Literature Resource Center; copies of theatrical reviews from The Times Digital Archive, and original copies of musical scores from Nineteenth Century Collections Online. However, they would likely miss the theatrical reviews in The Financial Times Historical Archive or the play advertisements in 19th Century U.S. Newspapers as they wouldn’t likely consider searching those resources.
Artemis will release in a series of phases and will expand over the next few years. For more information, visit www.gale.cengage.com or stop by the Cengage Learning booth (#701) at the Association of College and Research Libraries meeting in Indianapolis, April 10-12.
