Biography In Context, a next-generation online portal, is built on a foundation of more than 700,000 biographies of more than 500,000 people gathered from more than 170 award-winning Gale reference sources. It delivers up-to-date, authoritative reference content integrated with the most in-demand resources—video, audio, podcasts, and more—through a Web-like experience.
"Our previous review stated that 'user-friendly features [and] breadth of coverage of this database will make this very attractive to public, high-school, community-college, and academic collections,' and that recommendation still stands, as Gale continues to improve its databases based on user feedback."— Booklist
"This database will help teacher librarians ensure that subjects are available, up-to-date, and interesting to students."— Library Media Connection
"Biography in Context is a beautiful product – the user is drawn by the images, videos and the "look and feel" of the In Context databases. And of course it is a good combination of academic, reference and primary material – making it useful not just for undergraduate students but also for postgraduates and researchers."— Anonymous, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa
