As part of Oregon's Statewide Database Licensing Program, Oregon libraries provide access to Gale's popular database, Opposing Viewpoints In Context<http://assets.cengage.com/training/SearchTips/InContext/Opposing_Viewpoints_InContext_Search_Tips.pdf>.

Gale has now implemented a Chrome Extension to use with this resource. When added to Chrome browsers, the extension will display results directly from your Opposing Viewpoints In Context database, alongside Google search results. This allows easy retrieval of trusted quality content with a single search-putting your library resources in users' everyday workflow.

A recent Gale Blog post shows how the results display once the extension is installed: http://blog.gale.com/ovic-chrome-extension/

The Gale Opposing Viewpoints In Context Chrome extension is available in the Chrome Web Store<https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions> and can be installed by individual libraries using their location ID and password, or pushed to shared computers via the Google admin tool. If you need to look up your library's location ID, you can do so at the Oregon Statewide Databases Library Support Portal<http://galesupport.com/oregon/lookup.php>. If you need any further assistance with configuration, please contact Gale Support: gale.customersuccess at cengage.com<mailto:gale.customersuccess at cengage.com>.

Tips on how to install and manage the extension as well as a short video are available:
