Search, Sort, Export & Analyze—On a New Platform

60+ years of valued directories. 23 well-respected titles. One customizable collection. Zero shelf space. Since 1954, Gale has been publishing authoritative directories on companies, publishers, associations and more. The Gale Directory Library offers a wide-range of data sorting, filtering, and exporting options so users can tailor results and put them to practical use.

Gale Directory Library lets libraries customize content. Consider the benefits of selecting the directories most relevant to your patrons’ needs – including business and market research, medical and health topics, publishing, government, higher education, research and more. An added value—purchase and own directories like a book collection, but use them like a database due to the robust export features. 

Better with Age

With a major new enhancement to the interface, additional workflow tools, and improved search and export capabilities in place, this popular collection of online directories is easier to use than ever before.
