Hello and welcome to the UKSG Annual Conference 2024, from all of us at Gale.

In 2023, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Eighteenth Century Collections Online. With that release, Gale cemented its course as a provider of rare archival materials to help expand the possibilities of research. But since then, we have leveraged advancements in optical character recognition (OCR) technology, and, based on an in-depth internal review of the OCR accuracy in both ECCO and The Times Digital Archive, we rescanned significant portions of those collections for more relevant results in text-mining initiatives using Gale Digital Scholar Lab, and improved confidence metrics for more sophisticated research.

Last year, we published three new archives dedicated to amplifying diverse perspectives. History of Disabilities, supporting the growing field of disabilities studies, reveals fascinating patterns in how attitudes toward those considered to have disabilities have changed over the centuries, while Power to the People documents how 200 years of countercultural ideas around racial justice, labour rights, antiwar movements, and much more that activists presented as calls to action. Alongside these, Refugees, Relief, and Resettlement opens a window onto the history of refugees and forced migration, expanding the possibilities of research for scholars and students studying the history of—and who may come to work with—refugee populations.

Whether you’re helping an undergraduate student learn how to read a few sources closely or mentoring an advanced researcher analysing thousands of sources for hidden trends, Gale offers a solution to fit every need.

Meet our friendly team at the Gale stand or contact them using the details below.

We look forward to meeting you, and hope you enjoy the conference!

Discover the exciting new archives recently released:

  • Power to the People: Counterculture, Social Movements, and the Alternative Press, Nineteenth to Twenty-First Century

    Power to the People showcases a range of ideas, initiatives, and social movements devoted to people-powered politics and organising from the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries. Ranging beyond a few specific movements, the archive paints a broad picture of the counterculture and many disparate organisations that represent this moment in modern Western history. Although the archive concentrates mainly on the United States and the United Kingdom, it also covers events and topics from around the globe.


  • History of Disabilities: Disabilities in Society, Seventeenth to Twentieth Century

    Disabilities in Society demonstrates how society has presented and treated individuals with disabilities historically. Materials in this collection include records of treatments, methods of education, forms of remediation, and more. Reports and proceedings of organisations and institutions that sought to help or heal those with disabilities are included, as well as records of policies and programmes. Through this collection, researchers will grasp the many forms of institutional discrimination, political exclusion, and social control under which disabled individuals struggle. Materials chronicle how individuals were classified and treated and how some overcame physical or mental challenges to defy perceptions of being disabled.


  • Environmental History: Colonial Policy and Global Development, 1896-1993

    Expand your collection with twentieth-century British government material relating to environmental issues and the history of human-environment interaction. Access files from three departments, focusing on themes such as colonialism, land use and exploitation, exploration, agriculture, the technological revolution, industrial change and urbanisation, conservation, pollution, climate, development programs and sustainability, natural resources, and industries such as forestry and mining.


  • Refugees, Relief, and Resettlement: The Early Cold War and Decolonization

    Refugees, Relief, and Resettlement: The Early Cold War and Decolonization opens a window onto the history of refugees and forced migration, expanding the possibilities of research for scholars and students who are studying the history of—and who may come to work with—refugee populations. Topical coverage includes the causes of refugee crises following World War II, from the onset of the Cold War to the decolonisation of, and rise of independence movements within, the nations of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.


  • The Mail on Sunday Historical Archive, 1982-2011

    Established in 1982 under the same ownership as the Daily Mail, the Mail on Sunday has been one of the top Sunday newspapers in the United Kingdom for four decades. Generally conservative in its stance, the Mail on Sunday has covered British politics on the domestic and international stage through its frequently contentious embrace of tabloid journalism. Researchers can explore every full issue to follow both major news stories and perspectives on social trends and debates of the era.


  • State Papers Online Colonial: Asia, Part II: Singapore, East Malaysia, and Brunei

    These British Colonial Office files document two hundred years of British engagement with the people and resources of Singapore, Brunei, Labuan, Sarawak, and British North Borneo (now Sabah). Researchers will find insight into Britain’s administration and governance of these countries, their international relations across the period, and the changing demographics and daily lives of inhabitants. The documents also showcase how colonial history continues to influence these now-independent countries through chosen strategic alliances, manners of conduct, and institutional structures and how they deal with the repercussions of their colonial legacies today.
