Gale, part of Cengage Learning, redesigned the interface for the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL), its library-friendly online ebook platform. Gale improved navigation and organization as well as the display.

GVRL now offers a multi-page viewer and a page flipper feature. The interface is available in 34 languages and is embedded with ReadSpeaker text-to-speech technology in 19 languages. GVRL content can be translated into 14 languages.

Libraries can customize their collection by subject, assignment, topic, or class. Gale also offers free search widgets for library or course websites. GVRL hosts more than 7,000 full-text titles from Gale and more than 80 other publishers.
