Access to these resources is restricted to subscribing institutions. The links under the corresponding library or school name is for in-library access, and the link beneath the out-of-library term is for home/remote access where available.
Gale supplies posters, bookmarks, and tent cards for many of its databases. The libraries are able to order these items directly from the company.
Gale also provides Guided Tutorials using Adobe Capivate for its resources. For the Kid's InfoBits, there are two tutorials describing the resource. One is for students explaining how InfoBits works, and the second for teachers and parents demonstrating the differences in the articles listed after a search.
Gale offers a series of Sample Searches to retrieve in-depth reference content for the core curriculum areas of literature, history, biography, science and social studies.
