Gale, part of Cengage Learning, has signed agreements to enable higher education institutions throughout Brazil and Saudi Arabia to access Gale’s National Geographic Virtual Library.

Developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, the resource is said to provide a complete archive of the National Geographic magazine to the mid-1990s, including every issue and every article, plus an additional subscription option for the years 1995-current.

The national agreements in Brazil and Saudi Arabia were funded respectively by the Brazilian Federal Agency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES), and by the Saudi Digital Library, an organisation supporting all higher education institutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Gale says the National Geographic Virtual Library will benefit library users at all levels, introducing students to primary-source materials that are relevant and engaging, and giving teachers and professors exciting resources that can be incorporated into syllabi and reading lists. They will support learning and research in a wide range of subject areas, such as anthropology, environment, geography, photography, and journalism.
