LiLI Training: Gale: Part 1


http://www.gale.com (database title lists available, training info, usermanuals)

The path for help
-> technical & training
-> browse by product tab
-> technical & training resources
-> product name

Fun thing: Searching for California Crops in Yahoo. Check out the link about
California's Velcro Crop

Why is the link to the gale databases from the alpha list going into power search, instead
of the list of databases?

Gale Power Search option
Right now this is the default from our "Gale Databases" on the Alphabetical list. Use
the "Change Databases" link on the upper right to get to the list.

It should be noted that Academic Onefile and/or Infotrac Onefile include these
"powerpack" databases in toto:
InfoTrac Environmental Issues & Policy
InfoTrac Criminal Justice
InfoTrac General Science
InfoTrac GLBT Life & Issues
InfoTrac Information Science & Library Issues
InfoTrac Insurance & Liability Collection
InfoTrac Tourism, Hospitality & Leisure
InfoTrac Careers & Technical Edition
InfoTrac Communication & Mass Media
InfoTrac US History
InfoTrac World History
InfoTrac Educators
InfoTrac War & Terrorism
InfoTrac Diversity Studies
InfoTrac Pop Culture Collection
InfoTrac Psychology Collection
InfoTrac Religion & Philosophy
InfoTrac Garden, Landscape & Horticulture
Military & Intelligence Databases
InfoTrac Business Economics and Theory
InfoTrac Agriculture Colection
InfoTrac Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Collection
InfoTrac Nursing and Allied Health Collection

Use the subject search option to narrow by subject and sub subject

From a list of results you can click on the mid blue bar and link Expand/Limit which will
open a list of options that you can limit or expand the current search.

Bookmarking a marked list of citations (or storing the url in some other way) will
retrieve the exact result list in useable form.

Bookmarking from the search screen (not from a marked list) will retrieve and self update
the search. (Do not set a date range or an end date. The begin date can be set.)

Use InfoMark to email the stable URL
