For many years Gale has scanned archives of all sizes, working with a broad range of institutions to digitise often rare and even largely unknown collections of documents, making them accessible to the wider research community.

From the libraries of world-leading universities to personal collections, from independent societies to the homes of national records, explore the range of partners we have helped to open their archives to those researchers who may not have any other chance to use them.

  • Boston Athenaeum

    Boston Athenaeum logo

    Founded in 1807, the Boston Athenæum is one of the oldest and most distinguished independent libraries and cultural institutions in the United States. It grew out of a slightly earlier organization known as the Anthology Society which had been formed in 1805 by a group of Bostonians with the primary purpose of producing a magazine that they called The Monthly Anthology and Boston Review. In creating the Boston Athenæum, their purpose was to form "an establishment similar to that of the Athenæum and Lyceum of Liverpool in Great Britain; combining the advantages of a public library [and] containing the great works of learning and science in all languages." The new Athenæum flourished in culture-starved Boston and, as it voraciously acquired books, art, and artifacts, it grew rapidly. In 1827, it added an Art Gallery and began a series of yearly exhibitions of American and European art. For nearly half a century the Athenæum was the unchallenged center of intellectual life in Boston, and by 1851, had become one of the largest libraries in the United States. Today its collections comprise over half a million volumes, with particular strengths in Boston history, New England state and local history, biography, English and American literature, and the fine and decorative arts. The Athenæum supports a dynamic exhibition program and sponsors a lively variety of events such as lectures and concerts. It also serves as a stimulating center for discussions among scholars, bibliophiles, and a variety of community-interest groups.

  • Brill

    Brill logo

    Ever since its beginnings in 1683, Brill has been based in Leiden, home of the oldest university of the Netherlands. Founded during the golden age of Dutch history and culture, Brill has had a rich publishing history, including the publication of Bayle’s influential Dictionnaire Historique et Critique, the inception of one of the first scholarly journals in Chinese studies T’oung Pao, the publication of the Nag Hammadi codices for UNESCO and a wealth of major reference works in our areas of specialization. The international nature of our publishing program is perhaps best exemplified by the Encyclopaedia of Islam, a work now into its 3rd edition and still founded on the principles of international scholarly collaboration and review.

    Brill’s core activities lie in specialized market niches in the humanities and international law and, to a restricted extent, in the sciences. The company supplies a wide range of high quality, professionally relevant literature to libraries and individual academics. Providing service to authors and readers and to all those in the intermediate chain who are of importance is the core competence of Brill.

    To date the Georgia Newspaper Project has microfilmed at least one newspaper title from every county in Georgia in which newspapers were ever published. More than 2500 titles altogether have been filmed, including over 200 current newspapers that continue to be filmed on an ongoing basis. Microfilming is done in accordance with all ANSI/AIIM standards to produce film with a life-expectancy rating of 500 years. All master negatives are stored in a vault at the State Department of Archives and History in Atlanta. The UGA Libraries retain a copy negative for reproduction purposes (located within the Georgia Newspaper Project) and a use copy for the public, which is located in the basement of the Main Library.

    The Kansas Historical Society, established in 1875, is a state agency. Designated as the trustee of the state in 1879 and as the repository of official government records in 1905, the Historical Society collects and preserves the story of Kansas history. During the past century, the Historical Society's role expanded beyond its original emphasis on collecting and publishing research. Today the Society continues these fundamental activities and has added a broad array of interpretive and educational programs that combine with historic sites, technical assistance, and field service programs. Through collections, exhibits, programs, and services, the Society enriches the lives of thousands and serves in understanding and valuing the heritage of Kansas. Find out more: https://www.kshs.org/kansapedia/kansas-historical-society/12118

  • Lesbian Herstory Archives

    Lesbian Herstory Archives logo

    The Lesbian Herstory Archives exists to gather, preserve and provide access to records of Lesbian lives and activities. Doing this also serves to uncover and document our Herstory previously denied to us by patriarchal historians in the interests of the culture that they served. The existence of the Archives will thus enable current and future generations to analyze and reevaluate the Lesbian experience.

    We encourage lesbians to record their experiences and to donate to the Archives any materials that are relevant to their lives: we collect books, magazines, journals, news clippings (from established, Feminist and Lesbian media), bibliographies, photos, herstorical information, t-shirts, tapes, films, diaries, oral herstories, poetry and prose, biographies, autobiographies, notices of events, posters, graphics, zines, unpublished papers, organizational records and other memorabilia and references to our lives.

    National Archives (United States) logo

    The National Archives was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt, but its major holdings date back to 1775. They capture the sweep of the past: slave ship manifests and the Emancipation Proclamation; captured German records and the Japanese surrender documents from World War II; journals of polar expeditions and photographs of Dust Bowl farmers; Indian treaties making transitory promises; and a richly bound document bearing the bold signature "Bonaparte"—the Louisiana Purchase Treaty that doubled the territory of the young republic.

    NARA keeps only those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. By now, they add up to a formidable number, diverse in form as well as in content. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.

    The NDL has two origins: one is the libraries of the House of Peers and the House of Representatives in the former Imperial Diet established in 1890; and the other is the Imperial Library established in 1872 under the Ministry of Education. Most of these collections were transferred to the present NDL.

     

    In June 1948, the NDL was opened to the public using the Akasaka Detached Palace (now the State Guest House). In August 1961, upon completion of Phase 1 of the library construction at the current Nagata-cho site, the NDL started its full service as Japan's foremost library with a stock of some two million books including collections transferred from the former Ueno Library, Branch of the NDL (former Imperial Library), and others.

  • The National Women's History Project

    In 1980, the National Women’s History Project (NWHP) was founded in Santa Rosa, California by Molly Murphy MacGregor, Mary Ruthsdotter, Maria Cuevas, Paula Hammett, and Bette Morgan to broadcast women’s historical achievements. The NWHP started by leading a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women’s History Month, now celebrated across the land. Since, the beginning, the project has established the theme for women’s history each year and provided resources and materials for education and celebration of the women honored.

    In 2018, the project transitioned to the National Women’s History Alliance (NWHA) to better support the study and celebration of women’s history all year long. The NWHA continues to employ the collaborative spirit of the original project and works with women’s history organizations throughout the country to ensure that the incredible contributions of women are remembered and celebrated. Today, NWHA is known nationally as the only clearinghouse providing information and training in multicultural women’s history for educators, community organizations, and parents-for anyone wanting to expand their understanding of women contributions to U.

Why should I care? Why should I vote? Who are we?  We are a museum of ideas – ideas that are powerful, radical, innovative and world-changing – ideas that unite and bring people together – today’s ideas worth fighting for, as well as yesterday’s.  Walking through the museum brings you face to face with these world-changing ideas – election by ballot, votes for women, workers rights to fair pay, equality for all regardless of gender, race, sexuality, age or disability – and many more.  We are the only place where these ideas are brought to life through our collections, exhibitions and programmes.  Every object in our collection has played its part in the fight for democracy and equality. Each placard, banner, badge and poster has been held by different hands fighting for different causes – but all working together to make a difference.  We share inspiring stories that need to be told – of the people who fought for ideas – people who dared to be different and who made a change. We are keeping the people’s history alive and will continue to do so. Find out more: https://phm.org.uk/phm-story/

    Miriam Y. Holden Collection

    A generation ago, long before women's studies became a burning issue, Miriam Holden had already amassed one of the country's great private libraries on the history of women. In 1960, she noted in a speech to fellow bibliophiles that "throughout the ages men have recorded with care the achievements of men, and yet kept all too few records of the story of women." She found this to be true, she said, when her son brought home his American history text. “The whole book contained only one mention of a woman. There was a picture of Dolly Madison with the caption; she was the charming wife of a president.” And so, "to reveal women's part in the making of long history," she assembled a remarkable collection of books periodicals, manuscripts, clippings, photographs, cartoons, letters, and other materials about women and their achievements. After her death in 1977, her husband, Arthur C. Holden '12, presented this trove of 6,000 volumes to Princeton.

    The Salvation Army logo

    The Salvation Army began on the streets of East London in 1865 when Methodists, William and Catherine Booth, abandoned the traditional concept of a church pulpit to take God’s word directly to the people. The Booths preached and lived out a doctrine of practical Christianity — soup, soap and salvation — to encourage both social and spiritual transformation among society’s most vulnerable and marginalised people.

    The challenges people were facing in the late 19th Century — homelessness, addiction, loneliness and unemployment — are much the same as today. The Salvation Army has continued its founders work, tackling issues and working at the heart of communities to offer practical help, unconditional assistance and support to transform lives. Today, The Salvation Army is a church and charity that is active in virtually every corner of the world and serves in more than 130 countries offering God’s hope and love to all those in need without discrimination.
