Gale partners with libraries and educators around the world to create positive change and outcomes for researchers and learners.

The Gale Review is our international blog where you can meet our publishing teams, archivists, guest academics and student ambassadors as they unearth fascinating primary sources that have yet to be studied – or explore frequently studied topics from exciting new angles.
