I Need to... Find Information


These databases and websites provide information that may help with research projects and more. The databases are only available to the Oregon K-12 community. 
To access the Gale resources when away from school, you will need a username and password. Your teacher and library staff have that information. If you forget your login, enter the name of your school district or private school instead.

OSLIS Overview


  • If you are wondering which Gale K-12 database to use when, consult this comparison table (WordPDF).
  • Gale offers a bookmarking feature that creates a stable URL for quick access to articles, publications, searches, and saved items. This PDF about Gale bookmarking will help you learn about and promote that feature. While some of the database interfaces have been updated, the process is still the same. 
  • Before using Answerland with your class, please review their Schools page.
