The advantages of Gale Primary Sources

Downloadable OCR

Manuscript materials are keyword and full-text searchable thanks to optical character recognition (OCR). Users can gain even more access to their research materials by downloading the OCR in a .txt format.

Digital Humanities Support

At request, Gale will deliver data and metadata associated with Gale Primary Sources collections for use in data mining and textual analysis, supporting the digital humanities as a growing area of scholarly research.

Integrated Workflow Tools

User-generated tags and annotations, Zotero compatability, and user accounts allow researchers to easily collect, cite, and group sources, tags, and annotations.

"Gale’s primary source collections have brought teaching African diaspora history to life. My students have access to thousands of original, first person accounts of the Black experience across time and space, affording them the opportunity to create innovative histories of their own."

- Dr Kerry Pimblott, Lecturer in International History, University of Manchester
