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.”
“By limiting the content allowed into the search pool, databases such as the two reviewed here [U.S. History in Context and World History in Context] avoid burying researchers with the sheer number of results returned in an open Web search.”
