By using the InfoMark feature, you and others can re-visit practically any page you choose after you've ended your current session. You can InfoMark most kinds of pages. Depending on the Gale collection you are currently using, this may include, where available, search input screens, entire result lists, specific documents (full-text as well as PDF versions), directory entries, and your Marked Items list. While displaying a page, just click the InfoMark link in the toolbar (found in the banner area at the top of the page) and a separate browser window will open, allowing you to copy and paste the InfoMark into another document, bookmark the InfoMark, and/or e-mail it. Your Marked Items list may also be saved as an HTML page. If the InfoMark link is "grayed out" on the toolbar, then you cannot InfoMark that page.
|Important! Anyone who uses an InfoMark must have access to the product from which the InfoMark came. Users who have access to some Gale products but not the product from which the InfoMark came will see a message indicating that the InfoMark specifies a database that is not on their current subscription list.|
A separate window will open for you to enter one more recipient e-mail addresses (type a semicolon between multiple addresses), keep or type over the default subject line, and enter an optional message. Then enter your e-mail address as the sender's e-mail address. Click the Send button when you are ready to send the e-mail. Clicking Cancel will exit the window without making any changes.
|Note: If the system cannot deliver the e-mail to your recipient(s), you'll receive an e-mail informing you of this error if you have provided your e-mail address as the sender's address.|
When you or someone else visits your InfoMarked search results, your search is run anew against the current contents of the database. You may get additional or updated information than when you originally performed the search.
|Note: Databases that contain content that is filtered by Gale based on attributes of your user group (such as region, educational grade level, etc.) do generally allow you to share InfoMarks with users in a different attribute group; however, there are some restrictions. For example, ClassTrac, which contains educational curriculum standards for a given geographic state, allows you to send InfoMarks to users in a different state. After viewing the InfoMarked page, recipients of such InfoMarks will have to log out of ClassTrac and log back in to resume access to the content for their own user group. ClassTrac users should refer to the "Product Overview" section of the Help for further details.|
Keep in mind that successfully using an InfoMark link starts a search session in a Gale database. Even if the link simply goes to a document, all resources of that database are available to the user.
Documents that are InfoMarked should be reasonably stable, but the list of sources and negotiated rights (for text and/or full content display) in a collection can change without notice. It's a good idea to verify your saved links from time to time.
