Gale, part of Cengage Learning, today announced plans to unify, over the coming years, its extensive digital humanities collections on one state-of-the-art platform…
The new research experience, Artemis, named for the Greek goddess who symbolizes new ideas, discovery, power and “the hunt,” will enable researchers to make connections and realize relationships among content that has never before been possible.
“The research process itself is complicated for students even without having to evaluate sources to determine their relevancy for finding information appropriate for completing an assignment or writing a solid research paper,” said Angela Courtney, an associate librarian at Indiana University, who was consulted on the planning for Artemis. “By offering students the ability to access a variety of information in one location, and giving them advanced tools to better explore that information, research can become less daunting and more exciting, and can hopefully lead to new ideas and discoveries.”
Artemis will release in a series of phases and will expand over the next few years. Gale will start by migrating Eighteenth Century Collections Online and Nineteenth Century Collections Online onto one platform. Separately but simultaneously, Gale will integrate its literature resources and Literature Criticism Online into a single research environment. Most of Gale’s literature collections and additional Gale Digital Collections will eventually be added to their respective platforms. From there, Gale will work to unite these two into one comprehensive research experience.
