New benefits for you

Here are the new features that will enhance your bibliographic records:

  • Gale periodical MARC records are now based on Library of Congress CONSER records, allowing you to easily integrate your periodical records with the records for other content.
  • You can now receive ASCII reports for Gale full-text periodical titles or abstract-and-index-only titles.
  • You can also receive a full set of MARC records for all full-text periodical titles or just the updates from the past month.

We invite you to visit the Gale Admin site today to customize settings, review usage statistics, and download widgets and other usage-improving tools--in addition to ordering MARC records.

This new process applies only to your periodical resources. Your MARC records for other resources are not affected.
