So welcome in everyone again today
we're talking about gale business insights
My name is Amber Winters and I am
your training consultant for the day.
So I've got just a quick agenda here for everyone.
We're here for 45 minutes today.
Well give me 1 2nd here,
Just had a quick question pop up. we're
here for 45 minutes today so we've got lots of
time to go through everything new and exciting
that's happening within Gil business insights.
So first we'll talk about the resource just
in general, what the updates are going to look
like, what the content you're going to see is within
the resource. So this will be great if you're,
you know familiar with business
insights and you just want to take a look at the new features.
But it will also be helpful if you're brand new to business
insights, we are going to cover what you're going to find
in that resource.
We'll talk about the content and the features and as
we do that we're going to actually walk through the platform.
So we're going to see all of those nice new features
in action. We're going to see the new organization,
we've got quite a few different tools
as well that we're going to be able to take a look at
and I just got a notice that you can just now
see my screen, so if anyone's having trouble seeing
my screen please let me know it should have
an agenda slide on the on the screen here.
Um And I do have time, I'll try to save time
at the end of the session for any questions you have
and I do have some contact information, so if
you need some additional support or want to
go more in depth into something, you'll have
a contact to do that.
So let's go ahead and get started here. So what exactly
is happening? I'm sure the majority of you are here because
you've gotten um some some
information from Gale that we're updating
gale business insights. So
What's happening right now. We have two platforms,
we have business insights global
and business insights essential.
So what's happening is we're pulling those together
and we're creating Gale business insights.
So you're getting all of the same great contents
tools, features, all that good stuff.
But we've pulled it into a new platform
and we've combined those two soon
to be legacy platforms into this one. Gil
business insights. What's nice is your
library is not going to need to do a single thing.
when it's time for this to transfer over, everything's
going to transfer over for you and you're going
to be good to go.
Your users can actually try the new experience now
if they want to, we have enrolled them all the way
over but it is live. So if
they want to on your home page of either business
insights global or business insights essentials,
they're going to have this little orange, try the new
experience button, it's not required
but if they want to start taking a look or if you
haven't been able to take a look yet you
can click into that, Try the new experience to get a feel
of what it's going to look like when we fully transition
everyone owed over later this year.
and this new platform we're changing to you'll see
down here, my second screenshot
has increased the accessibility quite a bit.
So we've moved forward from what
you see now at the top of this page towards something
that we use for a lot of other gale databases.
If you're familiar with gale, you've probably
seen this bottom screenshots. Um
and a lot of your different resources
with a more um clean sleek
look less um
less frills and things all over the place
because as we have different bits
and pieces all over the home page a lot of times that
decreases the accessibility for your users
who have special needs. So we've
streamlined, make everything a lot easier
to click into which is increasing that accessibility.
We've also enhanced the navigation.
So they're going to be able to search and browse just like
they did within business insights global
or essentials, but they're just going to have
some increased features. The advanced
search has really been
amplified to really ensure they can access
everything. We've got multiple different points
of entry into the resource to make sure they're getting to
exactly what they need. and to make sure
they can navigate between different
ideas and different sections with
as few clicks as possible. So we're trying to
make this platform a bit more intuitive
to make sure everyone can really easily
work their way through their research and find what they
need in a timely manner
We've included some additional tools here as
well. So as we go through, you'll see we've got some great
highlights and notes options. We have
a listen tool. If your patrons or users need
to have articles read to them, we
have a nice integration with both google and Microsoft
that's going to allow them to send content over.
that way we still have
our comparison charts but they've been updated
a bit to be a little bit more easier to use.
So we'll take a look again at all of those today.
and we've pulled out on the home page now. Company
industry and country hubs.
So right on the home page, we've organized
them nice and neatly so your users can
take a look, they can browse through those sections
or they're going to be able to see some of the most
searched entities in each of those
three hubs. So again, a nice clean
platform for nice clean research.
So just in general, your business insights
has company, industry and country
So it's going to include overviews and company
and industry profiles, financial
information, but also reference
materials that are going to be focused around
those companies and industries.
In addition to all of that content, as I mentioned
before, we are keeping our comparison charts
where users are going to be able to compare companies,
industries or countries and we
base it on key metrics including things like revenue,
employees and population. So of course that depends
on which entity you're comparing.
Um but they'll be able to develop those charts
and they can develop them and send over to their google
or Microsoft drives like I mentioned previously
or they can email or download it.
so again, we're keeping the functionality of
the comparison charts, we've just enhanced it
to make it more user friendly and easier
to navigate through.
and in addition to all of that content,
we have some really nice business and industry
publications. So we've got everywhere from
newspapers and magazine to
industry journals, to academic works related
to business. They're going to find all of that here
on the platform.
And we've actually pulled that out in its own section
as well. So, previously, you would
find the content by searching for, let's say,
a specific topic or a specific
company. And articles might pull up that way
this way, we've actually got our own little
section. So you can search through just publishing
if you're not so much interested in a company
overview, but you want to really just know,
what's going on in general
related to grocery stores or something like
that, you'll be able to search through that. So some of
the top publications include the new
york times, the Financial Times and the economists
are all available here on our platform,
And you are able to search through publications
as well. So if your users are, you're
looking for a specific title
and it's maybe a very precise title
about a specific industry or something like
that, they can actually search through the publications
now to really identify what exactly
they need we've
got a question here, when is the launch date for insights,
wondering when to update our websites?
So again, right now your
users can click into the platform
to explore it, but the kind of
full turnover is going to be in december.
Ok, but let's go ahead and just take a look at
this resource, it's pretty hefty, so I want to give
it justice to spend a lot of time in there.
Um does anyone have any questions at all for me before
we get going,
Ok, I don't see any see I got
the I got signed up for leaving this on my
browser too long. but this is
scale business insights. So this is our home page
here. And again, as I mentioned, it's been updated.
It looks a little more modern than the
current, business insights,
essentials and global. So we've modernized
it quite a bit. We've increased the accessibility.
So let's go over how we kind of organized it here.
So first I'll go down into just the body of the
home page. And again, as I mentioned, we have kind of like
little hubs built out.
So you see the first one is going to be about companies,
They can browse their companies or they can just take
a look at some of the top search ones. Of course
they're all going to be.
familiar names because the familiar
names are the ones that are getting searched the most
Again, we've pulled out publications here.
So if your patrons just want to take a look at publications,
they can, they can browse them or
they can take a look at some of the most utilized.
We've also pulled up topics here.
We have our industry section and then
we have our major market section which
is going to be all of the different countries
we have highlighted within this resource
so they can browse through countries as well as if maybe
they just want to take a look at what's going
on in the United States, What's going on in the United
Kingdom. If you have business students coming in
maybe who have projects
going on and they need some country focused
They'll be able to pull that here right on the
and what's really great is if I click into
our browse, so let's say we're going to browse all
of our companies today.
We've built out a lot of really nice filters
here that's going to help them navigate down to exactly
what they need because you can see here, um
I have over 400,000
companies available to me which
is a little bit overwhelming.
So so you have different ways to filter it out here.
So I can filter now between public and private
companies and I will just mention here
generally we're going to have more information on
public companies than private companies.
just by the nature of the company.
Obviously public libraries, certain libraries,
public companies have to publish
their information. while private companies
do not. So we can actually narrow that
down now. We couldn't narrow it before. So let's,
we'll stick with public companies just
because generally we're going to have a little bit more
So you see, I filtered out here to public,
I can choose to filter out their revenue. So if I'm looking
for a larger company or maybe on
the flip side if I'm maybe just starting off my small
business, I want to see, what smaller
companies I could be in competition with, you
know, if I'm opening up a coffee shop,
I know right now, I'm not going to be in direct
competition with Starbucks but
there could be smaller. Change that I am in competition
so I can choose if I want to select
the buy revenue here.
If I have an industry code in mind, I can enter
I can also choose by location so I can
narrow it down to country or I can get
even more narrow and narrow
it down to states or provinces.
And this last feature I think is really great
is I can choose what
type of data is available. So if I want to
make sure I'm seeing swat analyses
for a company. So swat is strengths,
weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
So it's kind of a,
An overall rundown about the company.
If I want to make sure I have those available,
I can choose that.
If I want to have company histories, I have
that available here as well, we
have a question, is there an industry code look up
tool? there is not
in the platform right now.
Um, what might be helpful is for them to try
to navigate through to an industry by
either browsing through the industry or searching the
industry and they'll have the code attached that way.
but right now we don't have an agency
code, industry, code browser
or search tool right now.
But I can choose to narrow it down here. So let's say I do
want to include my swat analysis as well.
So you know what you'll see, I can scroll down and I've narrowed this
down quite a bit now. I'm at 1500 companies
which is probably a lot more manageable for me.
And you'll see I'll be able to take a look at what different
types of data are available as
well as that additional information here.
Well let's go back to our home page for now
because we're not quite ready to take a look at a
company profile just yet.
So back on the home page, in addition to the main body
of the home page we have in our toolbar
here, a couple additional options
that are going to help us out.
So this is where the comparison charts are now
listed under this compare button. We'll
take a look at that a little bit later, but this is where
they'll select to compare either countries,
industries or companies
right next to that. We've got this really nice browse
button. Now, these first couple of course
are the same as what you're seeing on this home page,
but this button actually follows us along
throughout the session. So if I decide
maybe I'm on a company profile and
I want to start browsing something else as opposed to
going back to home and then click browse,
I can hit my browse button in my toolbar
and I can navigate to those different entries.
underneath that we also have the option
to browse through our glossary or
just financial or investment reports.
So if we don't need a history of companies
or things like that, we just need the financials.
We do have the ability to browse right here
on just those things.
We also have a get link tool
that's going to give you a persistent URL
to whatever page you're on. So
if you found a really nice company profile you're interested
in maybe you want to save it, share it with a colleague
or if you're a student, you want to share it with a group.
, you can just use that. Get link copy
and paste it.
send it wherever you want it to go.
So you'll notice as we start to click through
the platform today, this get link is really going
to follow us around quite a bit so we can get
a direct link to whatever piece of content
or whatever page we we need.
We've also got highlights and notes his listed
here. We're going to
we're going to touch on that once we
actually get into an article, but this
is newly added to this resource. The ability
to highlight and take notes within
But let's go ahead and run a search. So instead of browsing,
maybe I want to just run a search today,
I'm doing a project, let's say I'm a student
the apparel industry. So I'm going to just search
And you'll notice when I do that. I've got some
really nice suggestions here that
are organized for me.
Ok. If you have a quick question, does the,
the Perma link. So the get link require
user authentication to access the linked content.
So that's a great question mark.
the get link will allow anyone
to click in to see that piece of content that has
been linked to. So let's say someone linked to
one article. Anyone who has
that link will be able to see that one article,
but if they want to move forward in the
the resource. So maybe they like that article
but want to read more
At that point they'll have to authenticate
however your library requires it. So
if they use a a pass password
library card, whatever it is at that point
they'll be asked to authenticate but anyone
will be able to access the permit link to take a look
at that specific page.
Ok, so again, as I'm looking at my
basic search here, you'll see I have
some different dropdown options and we've
organized them here, you'll see I've got
options for company profiles,
industry profiles or country profiles
I am not gonna click on any of these today though. I'm
actually just going to run a basic search on apparel
because I don't know what I want exactly. I just
know when it's related to apparel. So I'm going to pull everything.
So this is what our basic search results page is
going to look like. You'll see at the top here,
we've organized our content out. So any
company profiles related to my search,
I've pulled forward here as well as
industries. You'll see our trade journals
have their own section, reference countries.
You'll see there's quite a bit
There's a huge amount of news here. And I also
like to point out we also have related associations.
So again, if you're maybe a a small business owner
taking a look at your industry, you
may want to join an industry association to stay
on top of what's going on or maybe just to get support.
So we've got those listed within this
resource as well.
and we do have academic journals here.
So if you have patrons coming in who are maybe
looking for that higher level of content.
maybe again students coming in for homework help
or something like that.
We have a whole section for them.
Now let's scroll down here on my search results page.
So first I want to point out on this right hand side,
all of my great filter options here.
So say I can choose, if I have a specific
industry in mine here, if I have a company
type in mine, remember either private
or public, I have those here.
I can also narrow down based on revenue
document type. I can also search
within my results. If I want to narrow it down even
further, I have that avail ability
now and I underneath you'll see we have a few checkmarks
listed here as well. So mine right now defaults
to showing the only full tax documents, we
do have citations in this resource.
Um so I have decided just to
limit down to those full tax documents,
I can also narrow it on to peer reviewed journal. So
again, if I'm a student coming in and I need
that peer reviewed contents, I have that
option right here.
and then on our all results here on this
left hand side, you'll see, we've pulled it forward
into different content buckets. So our companies
were giving a few
just to pull forward. Same
as for industries academic journals, all
that good stuff. We pulled out all of our different content
Make it really nice and simple to navigate
through. And I can, let's say click into any of my companies
and I can take a look at all 6000 companies
I have here, or I can click directly
into a company. So let's do that. We'll
just move forward with Amazon
I'm assuming everyone on the line knows
So we'll go ahead and take a look at amazon,
Mhm. and it looks like we have another
question I might have missed it. Are nonprofits
or charities included in Gale. Um
Mark, I don't believe they are.
I believe this is strictly going to be for profit
businesses, but let me reach out to my
um my product team just to make sure
because I don't wanna mislead you. Um and I have your
information on this question. So I'll just
send you an email once the session's done just to verify,
but I'm pretty sure we don't include
nonprofits or charities,
watch out for an email from me shortly.
so now that I've clicked on a company, this
is going to be a company profile page
here. So we've organized this and laid it out
really simply so your users are going to be
able to find the content they need here.
So you'll see at the top you, you just kind of brief
bits of information. You'll see, we link to social
media if the company has that sort of thing,
we'll link to their website, give some
quick facts, the quick bits
of revenue, employees, all that good stuff.
Then as we scroll down, we're starting to get some more
advanced information and some more detailed information,
So we've got our company overview here.
and linked out into that overview are going to be some
different articles as well as brands
and things like that. You can take a deeper look at
next to that. Now remember not every company
is going to have a swat analysis but if they do
it's going to appear here on this right hand side.
the majority of our large public companies
are going to have these swat analyses, especially
since a lot of them are required to publish them,
So we can take a look at this if we want to, I can click
read full swat analysis and it's
going to pull that forward for me
scroll it down here
and I'll be able to read through that
jump back here though.
So underneath, we're going to get into the financials.
So you'll see these are pretty pretty advanced.
I can click in to get the full information if
I want to. But we're giving kind of some
of the beginning information right here on this page.
underneath that you'll see if we can look at our financial
performance over time.
At this point you'll see. It also gives me
the option to open my compare tool. So if
I want to maybe compare amazon to
Ebay, I can do that from here.
If I would like to,
we're not going to today
underneath this here, I've got my competitors
again, I can compare these at this point if
I want to open my comparison charts
or I can click directly into my competitors
if I want to move forward that way.
and then I have my industry listed here as well. So
I know we had a a previous question about finding
industry codes. So while we don't have
a look up right now, if you clicked into a business,
we do include each of the industry codes
um, related to that business. So that
is one way to, to pull the information is
to go into a company profile.
now underneath that is going to be.
so a question, where is the financial data source from
and how often is it updated? So we have quite a few
different third party
groups that we work with to pull out this, get
together Most of this is published by the companies
and we're talking about their investments,
reports, their financial reports and things
like that. We also have some Plunket reports
in here and quite a few different reports
from third parties. So um Mark,
it's going to depend on what specific
um piece of data you're looking
at. but a lot of it is published
by companies who are public companies
and then we aggregate it together.
Ok. And then again at the bottom we can
take a look at our company articles here.
So this is going to give us kind of the written
bit of information. Now,
as you'll see, we've got market research reports,
trade journal articles as I mentioned. If we have
specific trade journals in mind, we can take a look
and just really simply navigate through
Now, I'm going to go back to my search here
Now, let's say instead of companies, I wanted to take
a look at the industries related to apparel.
Remember that was my beginning. Basic search.
I can do that. Let's click into an industry
instead and see what an industry profile looks
like. You'll see. It looks fairly similar of
course, just by the nature of the two entities,
it's going to be a little bit different, but we have still
got our industry overview here. We're still
showing revenue as well as number of employees.
scrolling down here, we're still giving top
companies top competitors to
see I can narrow that down to globally or
if I have a specific country in mind, I can narrow
it down that way
underneath we've had we have a few different
industry reports from various
entities who build those out for us
We've got again, related industries
and I can browse all my industries here. If
I want to
and then just like with companies, I've got my articles
pulled out down here, below. So again, I can
still take a look at all of those articles
if I would like to,
I'm going to go back one more time
to the search that we already ran for payroll.
I'm actually going to click into an article
as opposed to one of those profiles.
So I want to show you some of the next different
tools we have when we're taking a look at some
piece of text here.
Um so let's click into
we'll click into one of these magazine articles
today. Um we'll do this one
So when I'm in a piece of text, I'm not looking
at a company, I'm not looking at an industry, I'm just
physically looking at an article or
a a journal piece, a news report
I've got a few different tools that we didn't have
previously within either of our business insights,
So you'll see at the top of the page here, this is where
they appear. So we've got a citation.
So if you have students coming in, if
you're working at a school library or if you're a public
library with students coming in for homework
help, they do have a citation available
here in M L. A. A P A Chicago
or Harvard versions.
and they can export that citation
to easy bib, noodle tools,
google drive one drive, all that good stuff
Next to that. We also have a nice send two option
here and with this again, we're
integrated with both google drive and
one drive. So I can send this content to either
one of those. I'll just have to sign on
and then it'll send it right over for me or I can
email this to myself. So this is great
if you have a patron who's maybe just quickly
trying to pull content, who doesn't have time to sit
in your library and read this bit of information. Who wants
to just save it for later. They can just
quick shoot it into one of their drives and then it's
readily available for them.
it does create a new folder within their
drive that's going to be labeled gale business
insights. So all of the content
they send over to their drive from business
insights are going to be funneled into that one
spot for them
just to keep them nice and organized.
moving forward from that from that send too. We
also have both a download
feature that's going to download this to the desktop
and a print tool
Again, I've got my great get link feature
here. So if I want to get a link
to this specific article, same deal,
I can grab that link, share it with whoever I want.
Anyone can access this specific
page that I linked without having to authenticate.
But if they decide to move forward into the resource,
then they're going to need to authenticate with however
you already have it set up.
scrolling down a little bit here. So
all of these tools are also
all of the the sending tools are also found down
here under the title of this article. So
it's a little bit of redundancy just to make sure your patrons
find the tool that they need. We've included
it in two different spots. So you'll see, we still
have our google drive, our one drive, our email,
our download and our print, sending over
the same information. It's just a second place
to make sure they can find that that content.
We also include an explore panel
on this right hand side here to help them continue
to research. So they want more articles
like the one they're currently on, we have that
or if they just want some related subjects
to what we're looking at right now, we have those listed
here as well and that will launch them into
a new search result for them to take a look at.
Now moving forward with our tools, we've got some really
nice we like to call them text manipulation
tool but it's tools that are going to
help your users really access this content
and customize what they're seeing
on the screen.
So the first is going to be our translate option which
is listed right here.
When I hit translate, I can now translate
my interface language, which is going
to change the language of all of the different
tools you see on the screen. Let me switch
it over here and we'll go to spanish.
You see all of my tools have been changed, My search
bar is in spanish. All of my little
buttons up top here are in spanish, my explore
panel is in spanish, it's going to
change all of that for me and it's going to change it throughout
the whole session. So if I translate
my interface before you can get
started, I can make sure I know where I'm navigating
to but I'm going to switch
it back to english here.
There we go.
And then under that same translate button, you'll
see you can translate your article
and it is going to translate one article at a time.
So as your patrons start to click through, they
will need to translate each article. But
if they translated that interface language, they're going
to know what they're clicking into, they're going to
retain that language that they need.
right next to that translate feature. We have the
ability to increase or decrease the font size
again, just to make it as accessible as possible
we've got some different display options
and excuse me
so they can choose the color of the background
if they like. So whichever they think
is easiest to read. They can change
the font options here. You'll see. We do have
a dyslexia font available for patrons who
and then they can also change the line, the letter
and the word spacing.
So again this is very
customizable. We want to make sure they're going to
be able to understand this information and
see it as clearly as they need it so we can change
all of this right here on the platform.
I'm gonna go back to my default settings today though just
because that's a little bit easier for me to read.
Now in addition to this, we have our listen tool
which is right next to the display option. So this
I'm not going to play it today because I'm not sharing
my computer sound with you, but this
listen is going to be the full article for
them and they can choose if
they hit this little gear here
to again edit what they're seeing
so they can change it defaults to highlighting
the text that it's reading. They can turn that off
or they can choose what it's highlighting as
it's reading. If it's
reading a little bit fast for them, they have the option
to slow that reading speed down. It
defaults to a medium speed, but we do have
a slow version as well.
increase the access the accessibility
of this content really simply right here
Now, one last document tool, I'm going to show
you before we take a look at our comparison charts,
is going to be the highlights and notes feature.
So if they're reading through an article and they find
some really interesting key points that they want to use
for whatever it is, maybe they're a small
business owner who's building their own business plan and
this is something that's going to help them with a specific
Maybe it's a general researcher
who just found something really interesting that
they want to maybe take a closer look at later,
so they copy and paste that little bit of information
and they can save it.
so I'm just going to click and drag over
whatever I think is important.
I can highlight this
I can add a note if I want to and I can save it.
and I can do that as many times as I want
and in as many articles as
I want. So I can go through if I'm researching,
you know, if I think key market players are really important,
I can highlight those
so I can go through and highlight anything as I I think
is important in as many articles as I want.
But these highlights of these notes are session
based. So your users, if
they do decide to to mark up these pieces
of text, they need to get this out of the platform
before they're signed off or before they close out
of their browser so they can do that in any
of the ways I previously mentioned. They can send over
to their drives, they can email, download or print
and then we keep those highlights for them.
and we have a question where do the notes show
up? I don't see it. I don't see it next
to the text. You are correct. So the notes
will one show up here? If I
If I click on the highlight it will appear
if I decided to download or print this
or send it wherever, um
the highlights is going to appear at the bottom
of the page and it's going to include
um any notes that I took. So it'll be at the
bottom of the page, you'll get the highlight with
the information I highlighted and then the notes will
appear down there.
And they're all also found in a different spot as
well. So if I click up now to my
highlights and notes, you'll see. I've got a little three attached
to that. If I click into this here,
I'm gonna click a view. All highlights and notes,
This is a really nice
Place for your users to land. If they have
highlighted, you know, three or four articles
because they're going to have all of those article
highlights listed in this one page. You'll see, I've got
the title of the article. I clicked into.
I've got each of those highlights and then I'll
see the notes I took
and then I can also edit those notes if I want to add
more. So this is a nice landing point.
If they've done a lot of this research,
they can come here, they can take a look at all of that,
They can jump back into whatever article they need,
but they can also send this particular
page over to their drives or they can
download or print them.
Yeah, I agree and I agree that it is very cool.
It's a really nice feature. So if you do have
um a lot of
research being done in one session, you know, and they
don't want to lose all of this information.
and maybe they don't want to send five whole articles
to their drive. They think it might be a
little bit overwhelming for them. They
can just highlight the parts, they do want to keep
come to this highlights and notes page
and then send it over where they want it to go.
And what's great is when they send it it does
send the title of each article with the hyperlink.
So if they come back to this page and realize that they do
actually want to dive deeper
into an article, they've already got the hyperlink.
They'll be able to click right back into that article
within the platform to continue their reading
Yeah, we have a question. Can I explain how the highlight legend
works? I most certainly can.
So you can make labels scroll
Ok. Um Well the labels button
should be here, not quite sure
why it isn't.
but generally with a highlight legend, you can
choose to label different highlight
colors so you'll see I've colored in purple
and blue and there are a few other highlight options as
well And I can
label each of those. So if I wanted to label maybe
purple as um,
beginning research may be blue with financials
and then I have chosen orange to represent
competitors or something like that.
Um, I can do, I should
be able to do that here. I'm not quite sure why
my labels aren't appearing.
Um but thank you for pointing that out. I'm also going
to bring that to my product manager because generally
you'll have a button up top here that says labels,
you'll be able to click into it and then label
through your different, your different
highlight colors. And then those labels are
going to appear right here.
Ok, now does anyone have any question about
any of the tools that I just went over?
any of the features, how they function,
anything like that at all?
Ok, I don't see any. So
I want to take a look at our comparison charts
because those are of course a big part of this resource
and they look a little bit different now. So
I'm I just jumped back to home just so we have like
a nice landing point so everyone knows where we
are. and I'm going to click into my compare
button, which is in my toolbar right here,
So now from this point I can choose to
compare either companies,
industries or countries. The defaults just a popping
up on companies.but on this
left hand side here I can change it if I want
it to be industries or countries, but we'll
keep it as companies for now.
And they can search by name or ti
or simple if it's a public company, I recommend
using tick or simple just because a lot
of times it's a little bit more precise. Sometimes
different companies will have different subsidies.
kind of pulled out separately so you might get
more than one entry. So I always recommend
using theeither the ticker symbol
if it's a company or the industry code
if it's an industry.
And we've got just one quick question and it is
not a dumb question at all about keeping
highlights and notes. So once
your, your patron sends highlights and notes
to wherever they want them to go, if they send them over
to their drive or if they email them, um
that content is theirs forever.
So that document with the notes they took
will always be in their drive. It's not going to,
you know, magically disappear after a few months
whenever they need it. It's going to be on their drive
in the gale business insights folder.
into second parts of that question. Will
um will it follow through any upgrades?
So, even when this platform upgrades
any content that patrons
or that users have pulled out of the resource
previously, even if it's the old interface,
is going to appear on your one drive.
Um because it's really, it's almost like a copy and paste
of a document. So they have that
stable document there for them.
let's get started here with our
comparison chart. So I'm
going to compare Apple and Microsoft
because they're pretty popular. We all know about
them So Apple
I'm going to search I'm going to add here
again, I'm using the taker symbol just because it's
a bit easier for me.
So we're going to include Microsoft here.
now? I've got my two
options listed here. I can search a total
of three. So if I also wanted to search
I can have Samsung here as well. And
then I need to choose what metric I want to compare.
I can compare revenue or I can compare employees.
So if I select revenue, I've got that listed here,
I can also choose to search both.
Makes it a little bit um
harder to read. So we're going to stick just with
the one today.
but I have that listed here. You'll see it's still
interactive so I can take a look at the different
It's given me the information on each company below.
and I can actually click into these company profiles
now. So if I'm
man, more interested in
Apple and want to continue to learn about them.
I don't need to go somewhere else and come back
or I don't need to search Apple and try to find them
in my search results. I can just click
into my new company profile and it's automatically
going to launch me there.
now I do have the option to view this as a table
as well. If I prefer that option, you'll
see, I can do that right here,
I personally like the chart, I think it's nice
to get the, the visual of it. So I'm going to leave
it as chart for today
and now I can send this information. So you'll
see, I can send this info over to my google drive.
My one driver, my email
I can also download or print it right here
and again, I've got my gali tool.
So I can hold on to this information now,
just like highlights and notes, any charts
that I make anything in this session.
Once I click off of it, it's gone.
So, if I did build out a chart that I want
to keep, make sure they send it over somewhere
or they download it or they print it and they'll be able to keep
and I can easily remove any of these at any time
as well. So, if I now just want to look at Apple,
I can get rid of Microsoft. And now I'm just looking at the
So even though it's technically not comparing,
I can take a look at one company to see where
they've, where they've been and where they're going.
now. I've got just one final tool.
I want to take a look at. I wanna look at our advanced search,
which is pretty beefed up now. So
do we have any questions about the comparison charts
or some of those tools we went over?
No question. So, let's go ahead and jump into advanced
search then. So it's going to be found right next
to our basic search bar. If we're
on the home page, let me jump back here. It's just right
underneath our basic search bar.
when I click into this here, I've got so many
different options to narrow down to what I'm looking
for. So we've got our advanced search here
scroll down a little bit and you'll see.
We give some nice information on what they're
going to be searching with these different fields. So
let's say entire document.
if I want to search in the entire document,
it's telling me what results are going to show. It's
changing these finds results. That section
look, I got a few questions, what are your exact
sources for stats? what
full text periodicals are included,
when we're talking about periodicals and publications,
we can take a look right here. We can actually search
and browse through those,
So clicking into my publications here,
You'll see. I've got 14,000
results and then I can narrow it down here on
this right hand side. So if I'm looking for
a specific format or a specific
subject, I can narrow that down here.
We've also got a few different language
publications here as well. So we've got a few
options that are not originally
in english. Excuse me.
And I can also search at the very top here. Search
I'm just reading through, we've got another question here. So are there
articles comparing Ceo s of companies,
how about instructional resources for
starting day training, our staff investing in general
or articles on how to start a
specific business? So
we don't have them labeled as such,
like I can't pull forward um a a Ceo
comparison table or something like that.
Um But I would assume if you started
kind of searching through this resource or searching through publications,
you're certainly going to find. Um
publications that are going to include some of those
And we've got a usage
question here about counter
four Counter five reports. Um
So amy let me again talk to products.
Um I've not been updated on the
the usage reporting just yet. So let me reach
out to them for that as well. Um Just
like with Mark before we ask a question
um Let me get back to you on that with my product team to
see if they have updated to the Counter five
now a question, would there be any strategic planning
docs available with company
profiles? So if excuse
me. Um If the companies have published
that we can add within this resource. We will,
so if they have their own strategic planning, um,
a lot of times we'll get their um, you
know, their their year, yearly published
bit of content. But if they
put something out there, we will certainly have that available.
lots of our publications. We have things like
case studies that are going to give you quite
a bit of information on different strategies and things
that have been used.
Um, so it really, it depends on the company
if they've built that out for themselves.
And it also depends on the publication,
you can take a look at some of the different publications
to see what they're highlighting.
So, let me just jump back here to my advanced search
So I did want to scroll down just to show you some of the
different bits of information here. So
underneath are great search limiters. So again,
I can narrow down just a full text or just to peer
review it if I want to. But this is a really
useful section here and narrowing down by content
type So again,
I can narrow it down just to companies if I want to
just take a look at companies. But what's nice
is I can also narrow it down if I just want to take a look at case
studies maybe. So if I want to see what other companies
in my industry have done in the past, we've
got full text case studies here available.
We've also got market research reports.
So if we're looking for um I know some people
have asked different statistics or
different bits of information. You can pull
those actually directly from the reports. It will have
all of the the publisher information
right on that piece of content and you'll be able to pull those
forward. So we do have that available here
as well as market share and rankings
looks like you have another question. I noticed that you have a directory
in your publication format. What qualifies
a resource to be included in your directory?
in our publication format, I'm sorry on this page
are we talking about
just want to make sure I'm responding
to exactly what you're
ok on our um
Sorry, I just want to make sure I'm answering exactly
what you're looking for. Um our publication format.
So that's just that's indicated by the publisher.
So that's been flagged on the publisher as
a type of um, of publication.
So most likely that we have you know, contact
information for whatever industry or whatever
bit of contents is covered
So that's not our directory, that's external
Sorry, I'm just clearing out to make sure we get all of our questions
And we've got a question here about our industry
codes, do we use the 2017 version
or the 2022 version?
That's another great, great question I would assume,
since we're updating Gil business insights
now that we have the updated version.
But again, Carol, that's something I can bring to my product
managers to get the exact information for
you. Um I know with the current
business insights essentials or global,
I believe we are still using the 2017 version.
but let me just check with them. I'm assuming the 2022
will roll out with this update if it hasn't
already. So I'll get with them
and give you a full answer there.
And then look for another question exporting
to specific country information,
um, Henry, can you expand upon that
just a little bit,
Are you asking?
Mhm Yeah, if you could just expand upon that
a little bit for me.
I'll be able to to answer that for you.
I'm not sure is the question, um, countries
exporting to other countries or
what a country's export is
Um because if we're looking let me jump
a country here,
just click into the United States here. Excuse
me. So if we're looking at a country
you'll see we do get quite a bit of information about
that country. So that's
what you're referring to. Um
you'll get that information here right on our country
and we do have a country overview
as well as a market line industry report
So Henry. If you could just give me a bit more
information, I'll make sure I can answer your question all
the way through.
Um And I don't see any other questions.
So before we leave for today since we're technically
over time just a little bit um I do
want to give you guys some wrap up information so
if you have further questions I want you to be supported
nowhere to go. Um So you have access
to a customer success manager who can walk
you through the platform again if you want to maybe take a closer
look at different sections they can also
talk about pulling usage and things like that.
if you don't know, your customer success success
manager is feel free to reach out to Gale
dot customer success at engage
dot com. You'll be forwarded to the correct person
so you can dive deeper into this resource
if you want. Or maybe just talk about some best
practices that would work for your institution
more specifically than what we went over today.
You also have access to a one of our sales consultants
so if you haven't spoken with them yet maybe you want
to you can feel free to
go to support dot g dot com forward slash repin
it'll be forwarded to the correct individual
there. We've also got some great support
and training tools available for you, so
this webinar will be uploaded. We've also
got a resource guide and things like that related
to gale business in sites on our support site,
which is support dot g dot com.
We'll have that available and ready for you.
I do have a training session survey here as well.
It did actually pop up in your browser as soon as
you signed on to the session today. If
you can take that that would be great. Um
And I think I see a few more questions coming on
but if if you don't have any questions
feel free to hop off. I know I took up a couple
more minutes of your time than expected,
I appreciate you being on the line. If
you did ask a question, go ahead and stay on, just
give me one quick second here.
I'm going to stop my recording and
I'll go ahead and answer those for you.
