The Gale Databases are a collection of databases that span topics such as DIY repair, science, history, news and even materials to help you with education and career related testing. Below you will find a listing of various Gale databases as well as descriptions and links.
Power Search gives you access to all of the databases that we subscribe to. Power Search allows you to choose which databases you want to search. For example you may be researching the U.S.'s role in WWII. In this case you may want to search the Military and Intelligence, US History, War and Terrorism, and possibly the World History databases simultaneously while excluding the Culinary Arts database. By default there are only a few databases searched but you can change which databases to look in by clicking the "Change Databases" link at the top of the screen. Please call us for the password.
