Reviews & Testimonials
“I knew that it made a lot of sense to have Gale products since students were using G Suite for Education. Also, teachers were looking for current research material, which In Context databases provided.”
“This is a fantastic resource, and it is highly recommended for school and public libraries. It brings a fresh and engaging perspective to research and breathes fresh air into the research process with engaging, multimedia resources. Students and teachers alike will find this a “go-to” resource for research on anything from Steve Jobs to steampunk.”
