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.
What Else is New
Redesigned homepage features improved basic search, direct access to individual directories, and auto-assist to help users input the right search term.
Redesigned Search results page allows for easier analysis at-a-glance. Sidebar filters allow users to narrow their results by geographic region, section, subject, and more.
The Advanced Search page features a new design and allows easier selection of titles for cross-searching. Choose product-specific indexes and search on individual editions or against the entire backfile.
New SICS/NAICS hierarchy tool makes selecting and narrowing down an industry a breeze, without having to consult a manual to find the classification codes.
Enhanced Export Tool—Now you can export up to 1000 records at a time directly from your search results to Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, your email address, or locally to a PC. Sort, filter, or use the .CSV file for analysis outside of the application.
