From the APLS Reference Librarian's desk:

As you all know, Gale offers wonderful resources for your patrons use through the Alabama Virtual Library. In July, Gale will begin introducing a range of new features and content to enhance user experience and expand classroom use with Gale Literature Resource Center. It’s aimed to empower students working with primary sources and provides instructors easy-to-find materials that inspire learning.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • New browse functionality

  • 700+ portal pages focused on works of literature and literary topics

  • 169 new works portals and 270+ new topic portals

  • Access to 100+ original works of literature

  • New primary and historical document sets, building to 100 distinct sets including 500+ documents

  • Current featured works and featured authors experiences will be removed; however, all content will still be accessible via search

The enhancement will release in two phases: on July 28, 2023 and in early Fall 2023. To learn more about the upcoming enhancements and our user experience research, read their blog post.
