Included Collections

In addition to a number of stand-alone databases, the Gale Access Program includes two major database collections, Gale OneFile and Gale In Context.

OneFile Databases

This suite of databases contains full text and abstracts of scholarly and trade journals, newspapers, and magazines. It includes the large, multidisciplinary databases Gale Academic OneFile and Gale General OneFile, which are also broken down into subsets of subject-specific content for more targeted research. A resource guide from Gale on using the OneFile collections can be found here.

In Context Databases

Gale In Context databases are topical collections filled with current, authoritative, and media-rich content. Two of the major In Context databases, Opposing Viewpoints and Global Issues, are also cross-searchable.

What is the Gale Access Program?

Thanks to student funding through the Academic Initiatives Differential Allocation Committee (AIDAC), the library has begun a new subscription to the Gale Access Program, a large package of databases that covers a wide range of subject areas. This guide provides information on what is included in this subscription. Use the tabs above to access the full list of databases and to find information on research support and training.
