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. On September 27, training sessions on both applications are being offered to everyone from freshmen to full professors. Find out more at the UT Libraries, or contact Corey Halaychik, firstname.lastname@example.org or 974-9314.
