Mixed Bundle

Vendor: 

(This resource used to be called Gale Database Bundle. It was renamed due to rebranding changes by the vendor over summer 2019.)

This bundle of databases is available for consortial acquisition.

For the current list of included databases and other details about the consortial offer, please see the current offer page in ERMA.

Platform: 

Various

Note: The Chilton Library platform has no permalink functionality. 

Some colleges have reported that the institutional UID in Gale access URLs prevents seamless automatic inclusion in discovery tools. You can either export all titles in CSV, batch replace the generic placehold ("loc_id") with your college's UID, and import back into your discovery tool; or you can ask your discovery tool vendor to do this for you.

Content Types: 
eJournals, Full-Text, Periodical Databases, Reference
