Statewide Databases: Home

The statewide databases provide all who live, work and learn in Massachusetts with access to a wide array of resources at an incredible savings.

Additional Gale Resources

You can use and share these resources with patrons, students, and end users starting immediately:

Miss Humblebee's Academy - an interactive kindergarten-readiness program that introduces children ages three to six to key concepts in math, science, social studies, language and literacy, art, and music. It’s as challenging as it is fun! View a short webinar about how to use this resource.

Gale In Context: High School - supports student papers, projects, and presentations while empowering the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills with content aligned to national and state curriculum standards.

Gale In Context: College - interdisciplinary content that reinforces the development of skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, collaboration, creativity, and innovation.

Gale In Context: Canada - an engaging online experience for those seeking contextual information on a broad range of Canadian topics, people, places, and events.


  • These databases are not set up the same way as our Gale databases. If you get asked for a password for any of these resources, use “open” (no quotes).
  • The end date of access to these resources is unknown at this time.
