Gale’s proprietary InterLink technology builds a web of connections across Gale resources – helping researchers find the content they need, when they need it, without having to know the specific resource in which to find it.
For your users, InterLink provides a better cross-search experience than any other database provider or web search engine can. It leverages Gale’s unique subject indexing and results-ranking algorithms to deliver hyperlinked information within the context of what the user is already reading, ensuring more relevant discovery.
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 Academic OneFile and General OneFile, with plans to incorporate InterLink technology into other resources.
So InterLink will not only enable a robust research experience, it will also help libraries drive usage of their e-book collections.
