Gale Reference - PowerSearch

You can search an enourmous wealth of journal, news and reference book content all in one place using the Gale PowerSearch platform

The platform includes the contents of over 15,000 full text journals, over 2,000 full text newspapers, and over 2,500 reference books, as well as videos, radio transcripts, travel guides and more, making this a fantastic addition to the Library's extensive collection.

Search and browse this collection from on and off campus here: https://salford.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://go.galegroup.com/ps/dispBasicSearch.do?userGroupName=salcal2&prodId=GPS

One great feature of this platform is the Topic Finder, a visual representation of results, which will help you to explore your subject and find related concepts.  Try the Topic Finder out here https://salford.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://go.galegroup.com/ps/termCluster?inPS=true&userGroupName=salcal2&prodId=GPS

The platform also includes a Listen feature, which reads the contents out loud to you.

All of the books, journals and newpapers included on this platform are also available via Library Search, making it simple to find this content amongst all of the other great content we have.
