New resource: Gale Primary Sources

Gale Primary Sources

This cross-search interface by Gale provides access to millions of pages of content spanning many centuries and geographic regions. It is an ideal starting point for research with tools to guide you through the material. Users can explore a wide range of content including monographs, manuscripts, newspapers, photographs, maps, and more. The approach also enables researchers to locate material in hitherto unknown resources, make connections between them and realise relationships among content that was not possible before.

The search tool allows users to find material in a single search from the following resources which Oxford has subscribed to:

  • 17th and 18th Century Burney Collection,
  • 19th Century UK Periodicals,
  • Any Archives Unbound collections held by Oxford,
  • British Library Newspapers,
  • The Economist Historical Archive, 1843-2011,

  • Nineteenth Century U.S. Newspapers,
