Gale Introduces InterLink

On April 30, Gale began offering their users the most intuitive, connected research experience available anywhere with new InterLink technology, exclusively from Gale, part of Cengage Learning. InterLink connect articles within InfoTrac to related articles within GVRL holdings with document-level hyperlinking. 

InterLink results are automatically highlighted within the articles in your search: 

1.    Search in any Gale InfoTrac database or PowerSearch

2.   Interlink technology searches the library’s GVRL collection for the most relevant, useful and needed results

3.      Click the links to expand and continue your search amongst key, selected results related to your original search 

In this example, a search of “retirement planning” was done in Academic OneFile. Search term results are shown in red (as they always have been), and InterLink results are shown in blue. The results will only show the first time a corresponding, appropriate result is found among the library’s GVRL holdings, allowing library users to easily distinguish and review the results. 

Clicking on an InterLink displays the list of relevant results from GVRL. Selecting an article opens it in a new tab/window in the Gale Virtual Reference Library environment.

Unlike traditional web search engines, clicking on a link doesn’t take your research in a completely new direction. Instead, InterLink allows you to continue your search – both expanding and narrowing your options – and keeping you within the accredited and trusted resources of the library’s holdings.
