Welcome to Archives Explored, where we take a look at themes, topics and events through our Gale Primary Sources archives. These studies aim to show the richness of content in the archives, and show you how the archives can be used to explore subjects in depth.
These sample collections gather together articles from our archives and provide you with links to view the articles on the Gale Primary Sources platform.
For these collections, we have curated sample articles based on: notable documents and publications that appear in the archive, that are important in the history and development of the media; notable contributors, which includes original writing by some of the world's leading thinkers, writers, and journalists; and highlights, which look at important stories, themes and approaches to journalism.
Please remember that these guides are a curation of sample content: there is a lot more available in the full archive, far beyond the examples we have selected here. If you would like to explore the content of the archive and see the functionality of the Gale Primary Sources platform, you can request a free trial for any of the archives, and contact your local representative if you have any questions.
Gale products are used by libraries and researchers all over the world, and our selection of Case Studies show user's experiences with our products, for both teaching and learning. We also provide example topics of study from our archives, to illustrate what educators can find to supplement, or even lead, their classes.
We commission Contextual Essays from academics to accompany our archives, exploring a range of topics around the content. Experts look at diverse topics ranging from the selection process of sources, studies in common issues and research subjects, and biographical explorations of notable figures.
