Gale, 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.
