Expanded Academic ASAP URL

Expanded Academic ASAP is the only Gale database that needs to have a new URL. Gale directs the old URL to the new platform so users will be able to go to the new Gale interface even if using the “old” URL for access. Thus, users will not be able to get the full benefit of the fixes that come with the platform change until they use the new URL given. We, therefore, encourage the campuses and libraries to update any URLs that are on campus web pages.

Reasons why we need to make the change to the new URL:

  • The new URL makes access to items via InfoMarks, more reliable for multi-user access, when used in a class web page or reading list. This will resolve the issue of multiple clicks to get InfoMark to work that campuses have reported (a.k.a multiple cookies issue) and result in page to have better access.
  • Users will now see all databases available for their campus on the database list regardless of their starting point, resolving the appearing/disappearing database issues that some users have experienced when using campus licensed Gale resources.
  • Search results are now numbered and Usage Statistics are now upgraded.


Expanded Academic ASAP is one of Gale’s premier resources for research academic disciplines, offering in-depth coverage of virtually any concentration — from advertising, psychology, and history to microbiology, the humanities, women’s studies, and other scopes. We hope that this article provides substantial information for your research journey in Expanded Academic ASAP.
