Is your instructor asking you to use scholarly sources? Do you have a research assignment looming over you this semester? Are you overloaded with information, or pushing off a project because you’re just not sure where to start? Save time, get started, and uncover something cool with Gale Researcher. Gale Researcher is a new resource, available to all UT Knoxville students, that provides a simple path to peer-reviewed content within American Literature, Criminal Justice, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, and U.S. History. Information is not only searchable but also aligned to subjects taught within courses so that finding relevant, authoritative sources is as quick and easy as possible. Join this session for steps to access Gale Researcher 24/7, time-saving tips for citing and managing the sources, and further tricks to using Gale Researcher to simplify your semester.

The UT Libraries recently purchased a complete package of Gale Cengage Learning’s primary source collections, giving UT users perpetual access to databases containing millions of pages of archival materials — roughly 600 years of monographs, manuscripts, historical newspapers, and more. The package deal includes the Digital Humanities Sandbox and a one-year trial of Gale Researcher.
