Gale Virtual Reference Interface Changes

By the end of December, all GVRL customers will be on the newest version of the Gale Virtual Reference Library.

Search within results:
- you can now run any search and then further refine their results by adding another search term in the left-hand sidebar.
- Enhanced sidebar functionality with the ability to narrow results by document type and publication.
- Enhanced document display with "Tools" that help a user identify what he/she can do with a document: print, email, download, cite, translate.
- Accurate MLA and APA citations, with full formatting -- including proper indentations, spacing, etc.
- Number of documents on the tab name, to help the user identify the number of articles available to them on each tab.
- Persistent "search within this publication" on an enhanced "About this Publication" display.
- Results always sorted by relevance, even on Advanced Searches.
- Colorful banner and results display, to make the database more user-friendly.
