• What's an InfoMark®?

    It’s a single-click return ticket to any page, any result, any search from your Gale online resources.

    An InfoMark is a stable URL linked to your Gale online resources. InfoMarks can be used like any other URL, but they’re better because they’re stable – they don’t change. Using an InfoMark bookmark is like performing the search again whenever you follow the link – whether the result is a single article or a list of articles.

    Built into every Gale InfoTrac database and In Context product, InforMarks enable you to save simple or advanced searches and re-execute them days, weeks, or months later. You can also share your bookmark with anyone who has access to the same Gale subscription databases – both local and remote users.

    It’s the perfect technology tool for creating:

    • Reading lists
    • Libguides
    • Course reserves
    • Current awareness topic sites --  links to periodical or newspaper sources
    • Online/distance learning courses
    • Bibliographies, reference lists
    • e-Learning sites
    • Electronic journals and periodical directories
    • Teacher lesson plans
    • Student assignments
    • Hot topics

    Dynamic results – forever up-to-date!

    Even though the saved search is used over and over again – at different times by different users – an InfoMark always functions like a brand new search. Each time a saved search is executed, it accesses the latest updated and added information in your Gale Resource Center or InfoTrac databases. That means subsequent bookmark searches might yield additional or more up-to-date information than the original search with less time and effort.

    Even more amazing – it's simple!

    Simply select “Bookmark” in the Tools section, and a persistent URL is automatically created. By posting an InfoMark bookmark, you preset a search path that is available to all jointly subscribed users.
