HighBeam has long been a content provider for the Cengage Learning subsidiary, so Gale calls the acquisition a “natural extension of [its] user-focused strategy.” HighBeam, which is best known for its Research Library and online reference site Encycopledia.com, will remain based in Chicago. Farmington Hills, Mich.-based Gale also has UK and Malaysian offices, and its major brands include article database InfoTrac and e-book platform Gale Virtual Reference Library. Release.
