Gale Primary Sources is a pathbreaking digital platform for humanities research, teaching, and learning, and Gale is pleased to offer instructional support to make it as accessible as possible. To help expand the pedagogical use of select Gale Primary Sources archives, as well as Gale Digital Scholar Lab, novice researchers and learners alike are invited to use digital Learning Centers to develop the methods, strategy, and skills needed to achieve their project goals. With 14 more archives adding Learning Centers in August 2022, at no additional cost, your Gale Primary Sources holdings are poised to become a vital launchpad for your institution’s digital humanities objectives.
Increased value for students:
Orient students with step-by-step instruction and research best practices, then spark inspiration with sample research topics.
Increased value for faculty and librarians:
Not just a vital tool for learners, the Learning Centers also amplify the instructional capabilities of librarians and faculty, providing an all-in-one resource for increasing research and primary source literacy across the institution—and tying Gale Primary Sources holdings to classroom instruction.
How it works:
The Learning Centers are organized into four workflow steps: Conceptualize, Find, Read, and Use.* Each workflow section features detailed, accessible, and engaging instructional content, including sample search cases, with the primary goal of teaching research skills and advancing learning outcomes.
