Happy New Year everyone! 

For January’s Library Spotlight, we’re looking at Gale Research Complete which has a new look for 2024. 

Gale Research Complete provides a broad range of collections offering a wealth of resources including eBooks, journals, newspapers, magazines, primary historical sources, English literature commentaries and business insights. Now, with their improved cross-search function, Gale has brought these collections together into one user-friendly space to make research even easier. 

This means: 

  • A single search bar to access all collections at the same time, meaning a broader range of results in one search. 

  • An improved advanced search including options to focus results by content type and collection. 

  • A Featured Collections section highlighting key resources of interest as well as a Suggested Collections feature recommending additional resources based on your search terms. 

  • A new selection of video tutorials to support research and use of the platform.
