Customers have told us they believe that providing this additional context within individual resources fulfills the In Context promise of offering the content, curation, and tools a user needs in one experience that fosters understanding, develops information literacy, and encourages exploration.

  • OpenURL - When linking to Gale content using the OpenURL Standard we recommend that you utilize the four core indexes (ISSN, Volume, Issue, Start Page) in the URL that is issued to Gale. The use of the other indexes is only encouraged if you do not have index information for several of the core indexes and your goal is to reduce the number of results for a particular query. Please note that use of the other indexes lacks the precision and at times will produce inconsistent results.
