Gale & Dialog combine to offer new info site for libraries.
The first in a line of planned online products and services serving academic and public libraries worldwide, the new service is described as a "multidisciplinary database" containing medical, reference, health, science, technical and regulatory sources, including such assets as The New England Journal of Medicine, Consumer Reports, Medline, GeoRef, and articles from more than 1500 newspapers. Libraries may subscribe to only the newspaper database, which provides access to news content, or in combination with a full ReferenceLink subscription.
Content in ReferenceLink was chosen to complement Galets InfoTrac periodical database, extending its content, especially content from Canada, Asia Pacific and Latin America. Also, the new service is a replacment for Dialog's CARL information service.
In related news, Gale has released the names of the 36 books that will launch its ebook alliance with netLibrary (Boulder, CO). Including titles from Charles Scribner's Sons, Gale, Macmillan Reference USA and St. James Press, the titles cover a variety of topics and include directories and references for the healthcare, animal sciences, biology, computer science, and economics fields, among others.
