I Need to... Find Information


The subscription-based resources are only available to the Oregon K-12 community. When accessing the Gale databases away from school, you will need a username and password. Your teacher and library staff have that information.

  • If you are wondering which Gale K-12 database to use when, consult this comparison table (WordPDF).
  • Gale offers a bookmarking feature that creates a stable URL for quick access to articles, publications, searches, and saved items. This PDF about Gale bookmarking will help you learn about and promote that feature. While some of the database interfaces have been updated, the process is still the same. 
  • The State of Oregon Law Library provides statewide access to a database called Legal Information Resource Center. Click on the database icon for login instructions.

  • Before using Answerland with your class, please review their Schools page.
