Posted Mar 14, 2012

Gale Cengage has a new idea it's trying out in the public library realm that we should observe. It's Gale Gateways, "designed to represent the unique way in which a community interacts with its public library." From the announcement:

Gale Gateways bring together thematic products and services to provide an organized approach to help patrons find and use information. Unlike anything else on the market, Gale Gateways will help libraries demonstrate their value and worth to their community. ... "With Gale Gateways we wanted to recreate a patron's in-library browsing experience ‘virtually,' while also helping library staff better serve their patrons," said Nader Qaimari, senior vice president, marketing, Cengage Learning.
