Research Just Got Smarter Gale adds InterLink to General OneFile and more!


interlinkHow It Works

Unlike traditional web search engines, where clicking on a link takes your research in a completely new direction, InterLink allows you to continue your search – both expanding and narrowing your options – and keeps you within the accredited and trusted resources of your library’s holdings.

InterLink technology connects current articles from newspapers, magazines, and journals with contextual reference content found within eBooks on GVRL (Gale Virtual Reference Library), Gale’s eBook platform. Its document-level hyperlinking is now available free across all Gale InfoTrac periodical products, such as Gale’s Power Search and General Onefile, with plans to incorporate InterLink technology into other resources.

In an article from your search results set you will now see blue links within the body of an article. These blue links provide a link(s) to the Library’s GVRL title(s) within our collection.
