Gale, part of Cengage Learning, has announced Biography in Context, a new online resource, which evolved from and will replace, the Biography Resource Center database. Designed as an online learning environment, Biography in Context delivers content designed to build collaboration from the library to the classroom.

Biography in Context includes such features as: Read Speaker text-to-speech technology, available on every page, an option for struggling readers and the visually impaired; a document translator, which allows students to translate any document into French, Spanish, Japanese, German, Italian, Portuguese, simplified Chinese, and Korean; the addition of Lives & Perspectives Collection; and topic overviews which combine with multiple media assets (images, video, podcasts) and reference content to deliver information, in context, through one comprehensive web-like portal page.

Existing Resource Center subscribers will receive these new products as an upgrade at no additional cost.
