Unlimited simultaneous users for Gale databases
We thought we’d highlight a little good news (more to come shortly!). Late last year, Gale announced that we’ll no longer have the problem of too many people trying to access the Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center or Gale Literary Databases at the same time. This had been happening due to our library’s limited budget for adding more simultaneous users to these database licenses. Please see their note below for an example of how some of our library information vendors have worked with the library community to keep costs in check during the economic crisis:
“As part of the Gale Value Promise, Gale’s commitment to you that we will work to deliver maximum value for every dollar you spend with us, I am excited to let you know that we have increased your users to unlimited at no additional cost. Now your entire student/patron population can access Gale’s award winning online solutions wherever they are and whenever they need them! Also, you are now able to take advantage of all of Gale’s usage-driving support, without worrying about locking users out due to seat restrictions.
We recognize that it is a challenging economic environment and we want you to realize that our commitment goes beyond dollars and cents. Besides holding pricing flat during your current subscription term, Gale continues to strive to be the best partner and advocate for libraries like yours.”
