Do you want to find more tools to access and analyze the resources offered by the university? Then you are very welcome to join us for the Gale Primary Sources Workshop!
In the workshop, led by Helsinki University’s own Gale Student Ambassador Pauli Kettunen, you will receive a brief introduction into the archives, as well as tips on accessing and using them for your own research.
“Gale’s numerous archives consist of monographs, photographs, and maps, as well as full runs of British and American newspapers, dating from the 18th century up until the present day, a amazing resource when studying languages, social sciences, history, theology… You name it!”
Learn to use Digital Humanities tools of Gale Digital Scholar Lab, which help you to analyze your corpus of documents with visualization tools. There is also time for workshopping your own ideas, asking questions and working together to find out how Gale’s sources could best support you in your work.
You can find the Gale resources here (if you open the link outside Helsinki University network, it requires a log in with your university account).
