Gale Rolls Out Six Archives Dedicated to Underrepresented Communities

Gale announced that it “is supporting academic initiatives in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) with the release of six new archives on the Gale Primary Sources (GPS) platform” that focus on communities that are underrepresented in research, including the LGBTQ+ community, women, and Native Americans.

The titles are Archives of Sexuality and Gender: L’Enfer de la Bibliothèque Nationale de France (the fifth installment of Gale’s Archives of Sexuality and Gender series), China and the Modern World: Imperial China and the West Part II, 1865–1905 (featuring files from the British Foreign Office), Declassified Documents Online: Twentieth-Century British Intelligence, Monitoring the World (files from the Government Communications Headquarters in the U.K.), Indigenous Peoples of North America, Part II: The Indian Rights Association, 1882–1986 (the nearly complete papers of the first organization supporting the rights and interests of Native Americans), The Making of the Modern Law: Landmark Records and Briefs of the U.S. Courts of Appeals, Part II, 1891–1950 (legal works that Gale calls “nearly impossible-to-access records”), and Women’s Studies Archive: Female Forerunners Worldwide (the fourth installment of Gale’s Women’s Studies Archive program).

Gale notes, “With the steady increase in misinformation on campus about diversity, social justice and political issues, these archives change the conversation by providing access to original historical primary sources that enable researchers and students to compare resources and make key connections.”
