>AccessMyLibrary iPhone App
Have an iPhone? You can access your library’s Gale databases for free with the new AccessMyLibrary app. This app uses your global positioning service (GPS) to locate public libraries within a 10-mile radius, providing access to all library’s Gale resources. It allows Gale to partner with libraries to create library awareness, primarily among users not typically aware of libraries.
According to Gale, it will drive usage to your electronic resources and increase foot traffic to libraries, and demonstrates their commitment commitment to providing innovative technology and content to users wherever they are. The service and application are completely free, and there is no authentication required to access the resources.
(The app currently only works to locate public libraries, although Gale is exploring new apps for school and college libraries as well. At present, there is no information about similar apps for other smart phones.)

You can find it in the iTunes store by searching for “Gale”, or by clicking here.
