Gale Cengage Learning Public Library Group Purchase

This page provides information on the Gale Cengage Learning public library group purchase and renewal.

In partnership with Washington Public Libraries Cooperate! (WPLC!), the Washington State Library Statewide Database Licensing Project and Gale Cengage Learning are pleased to offer the 2016 Gale online database options.

This offer is available for all public libraries and provides unlimited number of users and remote access for the subscription term of January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016. For 2016, you will again be able to choose your package level and within that level, you will be able to select the resources that best fit the needs of your library and your patrons.

There are four package levels to choose from (A, B, C, or D). If you don’t find a package and/or desired products that fit your exact needs, please let us know and we will customize a package for you.

What’s new in 2016?

  • New middle school resource offered as part of your base package selection
  • New “add-on” resources available to add to your package
  • Packages can now be customized based on request
  • If you’d like to keep your package the same, your price will remain flat
