Gale Products and HTTPS Support


Updated 5/9/2018

Gale strives to protect the library users’ right to privacy. We are adopting HTTPS to encrypt patron traffic so that it cannot be compromised. The chart below outlines the products that support the HTTPS protocol today, as well as the expected dates for remaining products. Please check back soon for additional updates.

Contact Gale Technical Support for assistance in generating HTTPS-compatible URLs.

Is your library using OCLC EZ-Proxy?  The support team at OCLC can work with you to make the appropriate configuration changes needed to support HTTPS.

If you are taking advantage of any linking features within Gale product (ex OpenURL, Links to Holdings, or Interlibrary Loan) then you will need to ensure that you are pointing to the HTTPS versions of these features.  You can access/modify these settings in GaleAdmin under “Discovery Services”

The American Library Association provides many great resources which can help your library adopt HTTPS.
