Earlier this year, Gale released an iOS app, AccessMyLibrary (AML), providing mobile access to the Gale databases for public and school libraries. Now there is an AccessMyLibrary app for academic libraries and an android app for public libraries.

Last week, Gale announced the first AccessMyLibrary Public Edition Android app and the first AccessMyLibrary College Edition app for iOS devices (iPhone, iTouch and iPad). AccessMyLibrary (AML) apps give users instant access to credible library reference sources in seconds.
The AML Public Edition Android app allows researchers using an Android device to access Gale resources through public libraries within a 10-mile radius.
The AML College Edition is the first Gale app for college students and gives them anytime, anywhere access to the Gale resources available through their college library. Students can use the app to locate their school and then authenticate for the school year by providing their school-issued email address.
In addition, QR codes are now available for all AML apps. After downloading a QR code-scanning app, mobile phone users can scan an AML QR code to be automatically taken to the Gale apps web site. Scan the code below for a demonstration.
All AML apps for Apple devices can be downloaded at the iTunes store. The AML Public Edition Android app can be downloaded from the Android Marketplace.
Additional information, including library marketing resources, can be found at http://www.gale.cengage.com/apps/.
Keep an eye out for these AML apps currently in development:
§ AccessMyLibrary School Edition for the iPad
§ AccessMyLibrary School Edition for Android
§ AccessMyLibrary College Edition for Android
