The Gale Library in America – an American online library is FREE from the 10-24 April. I like that as it’s not every day you get something for nothing.
So what can you see for FREE ?
1. Gale NewsVault — The definitive cross-searching experience for exploring Gale’s historical newspaper and periodical collections — with access to more than 10 million digitized pages.
2. Slavery and Anti-Slavery: A Transnational Archive — The largest, most ambitious collection devoted to the study of slavery. In its entirety, it will consist of more than 5 million cross-searchable pages. Part I: Debates over Slavery & Abolition available now.
