Adding Gale Databases to D2L

Gale is one of the many database vendors the Raynor Memorial Libraries subscribes to.

The following Gale resources can be linked to from within D2L:

Installation Steps

  1. After accessing your D2L course, click the “Content” link in the top navigation bar.
  2. In the “Content” area of the course, look in the left hand side bar and click on the module you want to add the tutorial to. You can also create a new module by typing a name into the “Add a module…” text box at the bottom of the left hand side bar.
  3. Once inside the module, click the "Add Existing Activities" button.
