Database(s) of the Month: Gale's Diversity Studies and Gender Studies

Gale Diversity Studies and Gender Studies Databases

This month the Bentley Library is highlighting two notable selections from our Gale OneFile collection of databases: Diversity Studies and Gender Studies. These resources support the University’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives both in and out of the classroom.

The Gale OneFile: Diversity Studies collection provides access to articles from news sources, magazines and academic journals exploring global cultural differences and influences related to gender, ethnicity, and race. Publications included in this collection cover subjects in disciplines such as anthropology, history, gender studies, and sociology.

The Gale OneFile: Gender Studies collection provides academic journals and magazines covering topics such as gender and queer studies, family and marital issues. Also includes photo and video archives from major news outlets, and PBS programs such as Independent Lens and NOVA.


Searching and navigating the Gale interface is easy and intuitive. Use the Advanced Search to build your customized query using multiple keywords.
