Adding 20 years to the ground-breaking, highly popular 1785-1985 edition, the new publication offers researchers nearly 70,000 issues and more than 11 million articles on the cross-searchable Gale NewsVault platform.

Also headlining at Information Online 2011 is Gale Business Insights: Global (BI:G) - an innovative e-learning resource for international business that uniquely combines Cengage Learning's content assets with Gale's digital capabilities to equip undergraduate students with an edge in today's workplace.

Gale is also showcasing The Dreyfus Affair in the Making of Modern France, 1894-1908 - offering researchers unprecedented insight into the definitive political scandal of its day. The Dreyfus Affair is part of the Archives Unbound portfolio of over 85 specialist digital collections.
Finally, Gale is announcing at Online Information its International Advisory Board for Nineteenth Century Collections Online: one of Cengage Learning's largest and most ambitious undertakings, set to change the nature of research on the nineteenth century, just like its predecessor, ECCO, did for the eighteenth century. The Nineteenth Century Collections Online publisher, Ray Abruzzi, will be available at the stand to discuss the project.
Gale's first digital archive ever to be released continues to be its best-selling and best-known property the world over: The Times Digital Archive. Nine years from its original release, a new extended version provides an extra 600,000 new pages of invaluable content covering the tumultuous period at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, all in a new, intuitive user interface. Researchers can now automatically create citations and export them to bibliographic software, such as EndNote and RefWorks. A Gale account allows users to save searches and marked items across sessions. A new image viewer allows users to manipulate images more easily and view articles and whole pages on a full screen. The archive supports research in Business, Economics, Humanities, Industry, Interdisciplinary Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Genealogy, Journalism, Theology, Science/Medicine, World History, Art and Architecture, amongst others.
From major world and British events to the stories of everyday life in the 19th and 20th centuries, The Sunday Times Digital Archive, 1822-2006 offers more than 800,000 pages of thoughtful analysis and commentary on the week's news and society at large. World-famous for its cutting-edge investigative journalism, the newspaper broke many of the key stories of the twentieth century, including the thalidomide scandal in the 1960s, the exposure of Kim Philby as a Soviet double-agent, and the revelations about the Israeli nuclear programme in 1986. The newspaper has featured a regular column on births, deaths and marriages throughout its history, making it an excellent resource for family history research. In the 19th century, the paper even included a regular Freemasonry column, as well as publishing details of the graduates from Sandhurst.
Seth Cayley, Publisher of Media History at Cengage Learning EMEA, comments: "The Sunday Times is perhaps the world's most famous Sunday newspaper, and its archive is a gateway to some of the greatest crimes, careers and culture of the last 180 years. The complete archive of The Sunday Times - cross-searchable with the Times Digital Archive - will be a key resource for researchers, teachers and students across the humanities."
Also launching at Online Information is Gale's digitisation of The Dreyfus Affair in the Making of Modern France, 1894-1908, offering researchers unprecedented insight into French diplomatic history through coverage of the Dreyfus Affair, which divided France and exposed the virulent anti-Semitism prevailing in European society. In 1894, Alfred Dreyfus, a French officer of Jewish descent, was convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment. Despite overwhelming evidence that the real traitor was another officer, the military continued to cover up the miscarriage of justice, until Dreyfus was eventually released in 1906. The resource covers the controversy from Dreyfus' humiliating arrest in 1894 to 1908, the year Emile Zola's ashes were transferred to the Pantheon with ceremonial reverence.
Comprising over 1,000 volumes, the collection contains all the well-known Dreyfus publications, such as Zola's 1898 newspaper article "J'accuse," as well as rarely seen archival materials and 83,820 images from the Houghton Library Collection at Harvard University. Predominantly in the French language, with some items in English, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and Swedish, the resource includes documents from many different countries and all sides of the controversy, reflecting the depth and breadth of attention the Dreyfus Affair generated at the turn of the 19th century. Researchers can access a range of monographs, pamphlets, newspaper clippings and cartoons, as well as independently published stenographic transcripts of all the major trials.
