Citing from Gale

Gale databases offer citations for their articles in APA and MLA formats.  (Sorry, Turabian is not available at this time.)

Follow the directions in the center column to take advantage of this service.

How to Generate a Citation in Gale

In your results list, click on the title of the article you want to cite.

When the article information displays, click on the Citation Tools link in the toolbox on the right.

A new pop-up window will appear, with the option to select either MLA or APA format. Make your selection, then click Select.

The citation will be highlighted, then you can copy and paste it into your document.  If you have any of the citation manager products listed on the right, you can choose the appropriate button, then click Download. 

NEW! Now you can save your citations directly to your Google Drive account (if you have one).

Once you've pasted the citation into your document, you can delete the Document URL if you're using MLA.  If you're using APA format, you can delete almost all of the url, just keeping the main site info.  Check with your professor to find out if he/she has special requirements for citations.

ALWAYS double-check your citations! Visit the Writing Center or download their citation packets to make sure your citations are formatted correctly.
