Health Databases




Gale’s PowerSearch lets you search multiple Gale databases, including Health & Wellness Resource Centre, Consumer Health Videos Library, Culinary Art Collection, Academic OneFile, Gale Virtual Reference Library, Alternative Health Module, and more. Gale's PowerSearch indexes over 50,000 publications, and offers the ability to multiple search options, “Basic “, “Advanced” and “One Search”. After you receive results from searches, look at the sidebar on the right side of your screen. You can see at a glance recommendations and limiters.

There are various document types, related subject headings, publication titles, and date ranges to refine or limit your search. And, if you’d prefer to listen to articles read aloud, there’s ReadSpeaker technology. (Click on “Listen” under the title of the article you want to hear!).
