New Gale Learning Centers Teach Students How to Use Primary Sources Databases

Gale introduced Learning Centers for Gale Primary Sources, which are designed to help “faculty and students enhance their digital literacy and critical thinking skills.” These learning centers show students “the content and topics available in a digital archive, spark inspiration for new research topics and provide guidance and best practices for searching, browsing, citing and reusing primary sources.” They give faculty members and librarians “an invaluable, all-in-one instructional tool that helps learners get acclimated with a primary source database, saving educators’ time creating teaching material.”

There are four workflow steps to the learning centers: 1) conceptualize, 2) find, 3) read, and 4) use. Gale notes, “Each workflow section features detailed instructional content that’s engaging and accessible. The content in each individual Learning Center is tailored to the digital archive it supports. Content includes topic overviews, sample searches, essays by subject experts, step-by-step search strategies, case studies and discussion questions to encourage further exploration.”

For more information and a list of the primary sources databases that currently have learning centers, read the press release.
