FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldmark Global Business and Economy Issues, a title published by Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, has received honorable mention status for the 2016 Dartmouth Medal, an annual award for the most outstanding reference works presented by the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). The title was also named to the 2016 Outstanding References Sources List, an annual list selected by the Collection Development and Evaluation Section (CODES) of RUSA. Gale's Associated Press Collections Online was also named an Outstanding Academic Title (OAT) by CHOICE magazine, a publication of the Association of College & Research Libraries, an ALA division. The OAT list reflects the best in scholarly titles, including only 10 percent of some 7,000 works reviewed in CHOICE each year.

"These resources embody the global approach to content curation that Gale is employing across its product development, but also our mission to develop products that help researcher explore information in new ways and build new ideas," said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager for Gale. "We're proud to have them recognized by the ALA."

This title was developed collaboratively with Thomas Riggs & Company of Missoula, Montana and Nice, France.
