Gale PowerSearch Interface Cutover
Gale has been sending out updates regarding their new PowerSearch interface and cutover the past few weeks. As part of the national migration date to the PowerSearch interface that was scheduled for Tuesday, July 17 at 8pm (EST), four Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM) resources were migrated from the old interface to the new PowerSearch interface:
- Discovering Collection
- Junior Reference Collection
- Professional Collection
The following two ELM resources were not moved to the new interface on July 17: InfoTrac Junior Edition and InfoTrac Student Edition. Kids InfoBits will also retain its graphic interface; so, it will not be migrated to the new interface.
MINITEX will be working with Gale and our Minnesota school media centers and libraries over the next few months for Gale PowerSearch options of InfoTrac Junior Edition and InfoTrac Student Edition. Watch ELM and MINITEX listservs for future news.
So, what's driving the new delivery platform? A super-powered search engine called Gale PowerSearch™ that features innovative cross-searching capabilities! Users can access all the Thomson Gale content in your library's collection by exploring one, several, or all available databases simultaneously.
