Use the app Access My Library to search Gale databases on the go

Access My LibraryGale, part of Cengage Learning, offers three apps for mobile search of its databases. Two of them, for K-12 and college students, are restricted to subscribers. But the public client offers free access to much of Gale’s content. Users enter a zip code; the app lists public libraries with Gale subscriptions within a ten-mile radius. Users choose a library to access the Gale databases to which that library subscribes. They do not have to hold a card.

Tip: Larger libraries can afford many fine Gale databases! Access My Library is a terrific way to explore their content. The apps work on Android and Apple platforms.
