The addition of the Wiley titles adds enormous value to GVRL in both STEM and in general education," said Jim Draper, vice president and general manager, Gale.
Gale will combine the reference content from its more than 100 publishing partners with monographs and multimedia content, such as videos, to make GVRL the only library platform delivering this broad cross-section of research support.
Accessing this content through GVRL, as opposed to other eBook platforms, grants users the added flexibility of viewing and downloading content in multiple formats in addition to other unique benefits of Gale's platform, such as ReadSpeaker text-to-speech technology and translation of content into other languages.

At the end of the six month period, e-books with the greatest usage will be automatically added permanently to the library's GVRL collection and deducted from the library's initial deposit.
Named "Best Overall Database" by the readers of Library Journal magazine in 2012, GVRL offers user-friendly features such as an interface available in more than 30 languages, ReadSpeaker technology (text-to-speech functionality) for 19 languages, article translation capability, a multi-page viewer for a traditional book-like experience, and the ability to download articles as PDFs to ereaders or MP3 players for offline access.
