Appropriate Use of Purchased or Licensed Resources
Most of the library's electronic resources are governed by license agreements that limit use to the Emory community or to individuals who are physically present at Emory University Library facilities.

See table below for info about databases that allow TDM. If you don't see the resource you want to use listed here, please contact your subject librarian.
All databases from Adam Matthew (which digitize unique primary source collections) are available for mining.

|Gale Primary Source Collections||
Gale Digital Scholar Lab DSL allows you to analyze the Gale digital collections that we have with the help of a suite of DH tools available via this cloud-based platform. Researchers can:
Gale Artemis: Primary Sources, searches across 22 of our Gale primary source databases covering 1500-2012, has a Term Frequency search option and Term Clusters viewer (available from the articles results list).
To download large datasets Emory Libraries will have to request data on your behalf from our Gale sales representative. It can take several weeks to process requests. Gale will send a hard drive with the data requested to the libraries for you to use.
