Q. Embedded GVRL eBooks in the Gale Databases

What happened to the GVRL eBooks that were once included in the statewide databases?

Answer

There are quite a few eBooks embedded within the Gale databases, especially the In Context and Resource Center resources.  Member libraries are encouraged to use Gale's Title Lists to explore the complete lists.

Additional Title Lists - Gale

Prior to the changes made to the databases following the recent procurement, Gale provided free access to 78 GVRL eBooks.  Attached to this FAQ, you may find that original list along with the database where you may still access much of the content.  68 of those eBooks appear to be covered.  (Note that the actual coverage is subject to change as Gale regularly updates the content of the databases.)

While it is not possible to use them as standalone eBooks in GVRL, the content is embedded and searchable in the corresponding databases alongside related articles and other content.
