American Reference Books Annual (ARBA), Booklist, and Library Journal are the most comprehensive, authoritative databases for quality reviews of print and electronic reference works. Launched in response to popular demand from library professionals, ARBA has been a trusted resource for more than 30 years and Library Journal was created 140 years ago, inspired by the belief that libraries transform lives.

Recently, ARBA, Booklist, and Library Journal published glowing reviews of three Gale resources:


Archives of Sexuality & Gender: Sex and Sexuality, Sixteenth to Twentieth Centuries, Part III

The third collection in the award-winning series Archives of Sexuality & Gender makes nearly one million pages of rare and unique material available to students, researchers, and faculty exploring areas such as medicine, biology, anthropology, law, the classics, art, and erotic literature.

“Together, the collections comprise an essential resource to the study of human sexuality, erotic literature, sociology, and a range of other academic fields. Highly recommended for academic libraries.”
— ARBA Staff Reviewer


For high-level gender and sexuality scholars studying this time period, Archives of Sexuality & Gender: Sex and Sexuality, Sixteenth to Twentieth Centuries, Part III is a wonderfully in-depth resource with many useful features.
— Booklist


The Gale Encyclopedia of Environmental Health

The second edition of The Gale Encyclopedia of Environmental Health provides reliable and comprehensible information about the causes, symptoms, and treatments of environmental health conditions and infectious diseases for users to better understand health issues and make informed choices and plans.

“With articles on contemporary issues such as climate change, food safety, and traveler’s health as well as fracking and Gulf War Syndrome, this will be a useful resource for students with assignments as well as anyone interested in the environment or public health.”
— Barbara M. Bibel, Reference Librarian, Science/Business/Sociology Dept., Main Library, Oakland Public Library, CA


Global Encyclopedia of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) History

The Global Encyclopedia of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) History is the first international, authoritative, and academically rigorous reference title that is squarely focused on LGBTQ history. It includes more than 380 entries, half of which are written by international contributors representing 35 different countries; expansive coverage of nearly 70 countries; and 316 full-color photos, illustrations, graphs, and more.

“This is a valuable addition to all academic libraries.”
Barbara M. Bibel, Reference Librarian, Science/Business/Sociology Dept., Main Library, Oakland Public Library, CA

STARRED REVIEW!

“An essential resource for those just beginning to study queer history, and highly recommended for readers, even those well versed in the subject, who wish to gain a global perspective.”
Anna J. Clutterbuck-Cook, Massachusetts Historical Soc., Boston

A huge congrats to the Gale employees who make these resources invaluable!
