When you access a resource via the Gale databases, you can create a bookmark, or a stable link that leads back to that resource, and easily share it with colleagues, students, or patrons.  Others can then click on the bookmark URL and enter whatever password/authentication code you have in place for your library to be directed to the resource you want to share.  This is a great way to disseminate articles about the latest research on XYZ to your colleagues, to collect in one place all of the Gale resources you helped a patron find, etc.  When you see these icons on pages within the Gale databases, you know you can set up a bookmark to get back to that spot.

Julie Pepera is the Gale trainer who did the Gale portion of the OSLIS session at the OASL conference a few weeks ago.  She did a super job, and her session was very well-received.  Julie sent me a PowerPoint and a PDF that explain the advantages of bookmarking and the 4 best levels/places within a Gale search to bookmark.  Feel free to use either resource.

The PowerPoint and PDF can be accessed from the teacher content area of both educator Find Information pages on OSLIS.  Click on either link and scroll to the very bottom of the page.
Questions?  Please ask.
