Digitized primary source archives allow broader access to the rarest and historically significant documents from around the world. As a pioneer in digitization, Gale allows you to discover original, firsthand content with flawless details through Gale Primary Sources.

Recently, Library Journal reviewed four of our Gale Primary Sources calling them “essential” and “comprehensive.”

Political Extremism & Radicalism in the Twentieth Century

“First-rate content, usability, and features make Political Extremism & Radicalism a strong option for libraries that subscribe to databases on pacifism. . . Researchers interested in the nature, evolution, and contemporary state of extreme political thought from a variety of perspectives will be highly satisfied.”

The Stuart and Cumberland Papers from the Royal Archives, Windsor Castle

“Like all of the State Papers Online series, this resource is essential for scholars and students of the period. It brings to light underground documents of the 18th-century British revolutionary movement, thereby revealing the mind-set of opposing factions, the mechanisms used to maintain power, and the schemes to ­suppress opposition.”

The Making of the Modern World: Part III, 1890–1945 

“Similar to the earlier two collections in terms of content and quality, this resource contains primary sources of never-before-digitized materials that are easy to read and retrieve, with an interface, search capabilities, and features that will be familiar to Gale database users. The historic value, comprehensive content, intuitive search options, and high levels of functionality make Part III a worthy addition to the series and particularly valuable to those interested in early 20th-century history, political science, philosophy, business law, economic law, and women’s studies.”

State Papers Online: Eighteenth Century, 1714–1782; Part IV

“The archive provides an open window into the ascension of Great Britain as a colonial and world power in the 1700s. As such, it is a core resource for understanding 18th-century political, social, and economic British and European history.”
