GoWYLD Library Information - Gale Databases

If you are experiencing problems accessing any Gale database, please contact us at

The Wyoming State Library and the University of Wyoming partner to provide access to multiple Gale resources including article databases, Chilton's auto repair, the digital magazine archives of The Economist, Smithsonian, National Geographic, and the popular 'In Context' series of visually engaging and interactive research databases, as well as primary source archives in Gale Primary Sources and Archives Unbound. All of these databases are available to all institutions and residents of Wyoming.

The State Library provides funding for Chilton's Library, Literature Resource Center, Biography in Context, Global Issues in Context, Opposing Viewpoints in Context, U.S. History in Context, and World History in Context.  All other Gale databases are funded by the University of Wyoming.

Authentication: Gale links use IP based authentication. Users whose IPs are not recognized will be redirected to either the State Library proxy server or a college proxy server, based on the location ID in the original link. If you need assistance constructing a link to a Gale resource, please contact the State Library.

Special notes for Schools
Single Sign On (SSO): If you are in a school using Google, Microsoft, ClassLink, or Clever for SSO, contact the State Library to find out how to authenticate access to Gale products using SSO.

Gale resources also include integration with G-Suite for Education and Microsoft Office 365

Usage Statistics (Gale Databases & Chilton Library)

GALE usage is reported using the standard COUNTER Database Report on a Fiscal Year basis. This report provides more details by database used and reduces the duplicate counts for searches logged in the standard reports.
Site level usage is not accurate for Gale products as it is logged by the location ID referenced in the URL. Library specific usage can only be tracked if a site is using a unique Location ID in the link (URL)

Chilton Library usage shows hit counts for the product, equating to searches.
