The spot where information about information lives

Gale In Context Interface Enhancements

Navigation Improvements: We designed, launched and now enhanced In Context based on user input from librarians, patrons, faculty and students, which have led to improvements such as:

  • An “On this page” box that “jumps” to the content a user wants first (no scrolling required)
  • Multimedia selections are positioned higher on the page
  • “Featured Viewpoints” or “Featured Content” deliver selected articles from leading voices in the subject
  • Improved search assist helps users quickly identify portal pages by displaying those listings first

Content Updates: Because timely information is critical to successful results for researchers,In Context is updated regularly with new topic overviews, portal pages, images and articles to keep pace with user needs. Here are just a few of the most recent updates based on current events:

  • Death of Osama bin Laden (content integrated within 48 hours of the breaking news)
  • 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan (new portal, Global Issues in Context)
  • The Egyptian Protests (new portal, Opposing Viewpoints in Context)
