comparison studies between Proquest and Gale databases Rachel 20 Jun 2005 13:01 UTC
Does anyone know of up to date studies or articles comparing Proquest to Gale Expanded Academic database, or has anyone done this comparison before deciding to buy. Im trying to gage whether its worth while investing in Gale if we already have Proquest. Is there alot of overlapping?
We are a small teachers college (2000 students 400 teachers) with an ever dwindling budget. Ive been instructed to cancel two thirds of our journal collection - which Im only willing to do if we acquire another database.I am familiar with the Ebsco Academic database but it costs more than twice the price.
Thanks for any input.
