Gale Accelerate

Due to the Library purchasing several Gale digital archives in 2022/23 to add to our collections, Gale have again offered us free long-term trial access to 5 more of their digital archives (+ 2 supplements to digital archives we already own) through their Gale Accelerate programme.

The Library has access to these archives until the 28 July 2024.

The long-term trial access is an opportunity for our students and staff to try resources out and give feedback on their quality and usefulness. However, when we trial resources this is not an indication that we plan to or will be able to purchase or subscribe to any of the resources in the long term.
