Reviews & Testimonials
"We used GREENR on the Lancaster Full Time and Executive MBA programs this academic year for the first time. Being able to access the wealth of policy related material available on the GREENR database added an extra dimension to the Global Society and Responsible Management module, helping to make the course relevant and topical."
"As a librarian heavily involved in promoting independent learning at KS4 and KS5, I value digital resources that offer not only great content but also make it easy for students to find what they need. From this perspective, the Gale in Context are superior to any other platform available to UK schools. The quantity, quality and diversity of content is superb, ranging from short summary articles to images, ebooks, primary sources and scholarly material. Search results are curated superbly, enabling students (and staff) to quickly work out what's likely to be of most relevance and to filter out what's not. Gale's 'Power Search' function, which visualises links between search terms and topics, is invaluable for helping students find material they might otherwise have missed and understand research as an intellectual process rather than simply a series of mechanical actions. Cross-platform searching and single sign on work seamlessly. Last but not least, Gale have taken accessibility seriously, offering a range of useful features which include text-to-speech, dyslexia-friendly fonts and navigational consistency."
"Our Year 9 students undertake a research project in which they are required to use authoritative sources and references. Teachers have been able to point them to Gale in Context collections and Gale Schools (which covers newspapers, newspaper archives and magazines) for their research, as they are written by subject experts with credible references. I also love demonstrating Gale’s unique Topic Finder tool, which groups search results visually... making it easier for students to find the most relevant results and key words associated with that topic.
