Gale News Vault Workflow

Page history last edited by Samina Gul Ali 3 years, 9 months ago

 Search Gale News Vault 


    1. Since an institutional license is required for Gale, you need to be working on a campus or you need to sign in to Gale via the UM/UCSB/CSUN Library site.
      1. Go to your library site. Search for Databases > G. Select "Gale News Vault."
      2. If you're off campus, you will need to sign in with your student ID and password.  
    2. Under “Limit Your Search,” scroll down to “By Publication Title” and click “Browse Publication Titles” (to the left of the search box)
      1. Click on the first letter of your chosen publication, and select your publication
      2. Click “submit” (this will return you to the Gale News Vault homepage, with your pubid now in the “By Publication Title” search box
      3. Hit “Search” on the right-hand side of the page
    3. On the “Search Results” page, make sure you have correctly selected your publication
      1. On the left-hand side, you will see a dark blue box. At the bottom of the blue box, you should see “Limit By” followed by a drop-down menu. The selection on the drop-down menu should be “Publication Title.” Underneath “Publication Title” should be the name of your chosen publication.
    4. On the left-hand side of the “Search Results” page, you can refine your results by date or keyword. Search as follows: 
      1. Refine Results. Here is where you enter keywords like “humanities.” Be sure to include quotes around the term.  
      2. Limit by date.  Select "specific date range" from the drop-down menu and fill out as follows:
        1. Start: January 1, whatever year you are collecting
        2. End: December 31, whatever year you are collecting
      3. Sort by: On the top right corner of your search results, click the “Sort by” drop-down menu and choose "Relevance"
    5. After running the search, select the number of articles you need to download. Depending on how many you need, you may need to go to the next page and select the rest. For example, if you need to collect 104 articles, select all from the first page of results, then click "Next," and select 4 from the following page. Make sure to select only articles from the year you are searching for.
    6. HERE IS WHERE WE RUN INTO A PROBLEM ON GALE NEWS VAULT: There is no clear option where you can collect/download more than one article at a time. After doing a quick google search on Gale News Vault, it seems as though they do have a limitation on how many articles can be downloaded by a single user (although I have not found an exact number)
