Gale Expands Relationship with Google and Discovery Services

Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, is working with Google to index millions of documents in Google Scholar and expanding the amount of content indexed by major library discovery services.

Gale will be enabling its full-text scholarly content – roughly 2.5 million articles aggregated from thousands of scholarly publishers – to be indexed by Google Scholar, a free search engine for scholarly research. Users beginning their research in Google Scholar will be able to discover content from Gale and its partners, and either be taken to the full-text of an article (if authenticated users of a subscribed library) or be directed to an abstract and information on how to access the article.

To aid in discovery of Gale resources through library discovery services, Gale has shared in the past year more than 750 million documents for 29 of its popular products with discovery services partners, bringing the total number of documents shared to over 1.1 billion across 31 products.
