We are very pleased to announce that our partner Gale Cengage Learning has created a new initiative to make their amazing collection of databases available to scholars for data mining. Gale has been a leader since the beginning in making digitized content available to researchers and they are taking a bold next step.
NovelTM is excited to be using Gale’s content to show what new things we can learn about the past through the use of well-curated digital collections. And as we maintain in our mission statement, we are also excited to show how academics can return enriched data back to our corporate partners to enhance the value of those data sets to their customers. We’re hoping this can serve as a prototype of a meaningful partnership between digital humanists and content providers.
