The Wyoming State Library has contracted with Gale to bring many resources to Wyoming residents. In 2013, the Shared Purchases Committee renegotiated the Gale contract to provide several high interest databases. A reduction in funding made it impossible to sustain the full contract that had been in place since 2010. These changes will take affect after the contract renewal in mid-December 2013.
Databases that will be retained for 2014 are:
Biography in Context, Chilton's Library, Global Issues in Context, Literature Resource Center, Opposing Viewpoints in Context, U.S. History in Context, and World History in Context.
Nineteenth Century Newspapers and the Eighteenth Century Collections Online are purchased by the University of Wyoming and are not affected by these changes.
Individual library subscriptions (such as those to Gale Virtual Reference) are also not affected.
