Why eBooks for Instruction

With the cost of higher education growing each year, the role of libraries becomes more important than ever. Academic libraries can help reduce the cost of classes by working with faculty to select library-owned resources that either supplement or replace course materials. Gale eBooks on GVRL is the ideal solution for librarians looking to expand their research collection to support affordable education for all students. This eBook platform provides the content, rights, and workflow tools needed for instruction across entry and upper-level courses.

A single-copy purchase of any Gale eBook provides access to everyone, at anytime, with no use restrictions. This ensures that faculty who adopt eBook content into classroom instruction can provide equal access to all students on the first day of class and for semesters to come. Additional benefits include:

Strengthening Partnerships

Support faculty in their selection of course materials by creating custom collections or groupings of titles that align with course offerings.

Collaboration Tools

Integrated G Suite for Education and Microsoft Office 365 tools allow faculty and students to work with tools they are already familiar with, eliminating the need to purchase additional software. 

Persistent URLs

Bookmarked links never change and can be shared with non-users. Faculty can easily embed links into their learning management system, reading list, or course site.  

Course-Aligned Instructional Packages

Our instructional design team carefully selects the titles within each collection to ensure that they are best suited for classroom instruction and aligned to course objectives. Explore the complete collections below to see how they can be implemented at your institution.
