Cut to the Chase! Topic Collections

Gale Topic Collections (listed under General Reference on the county database page) breaks down the sources offered from Gale’s primary databases into specialty sub-collections, offering many practical uses.

A More Focused Search:

These smaller collections allow for you and your patrons to perform a more focused search, exploring only the top journals in a specific field.  If the larger databases are overwhelming, Gale Topic Collections will help narrow the search and yield more relevant results.

Inspiring to Browse:
