Library Home: Gale Virtual Reference Library

Your starting point for accessing everything the library has to offer.

King David School students and staff now have access to non-fiction eBooks to support study in all major disciplines. The eBooks are made available through Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL), an eBook platform from Gale.


GVRL can be searched directly from the library website - use the GVRL search box that is under Search Tools on the right hand side of most pages. The GVRL platform supports all major e-readers and offers user-friendly features such as read-aloud technology, article translation into Hebrew and other languages and the ability to download articles for offline access. Multiple users can access the same e-Book at once and you can access the eBooks directly on your mobile device.


While at school, GVRL can be accessed without logging in. Outside of school simply sign in with Google (using your full email address and password). GVRL is also integrated with G Suite for Education. Student and teachers can seamlessly log into their Google account within GVRL to easily save, share and download content (including bookmarks and their personal highlights and notes) using Gmail, Drive and Docs.


The videos below give a quick overview of how to browse, search, highlight and take notes, and downloading articles direct to your device or to Google Drive. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to see your friendly library staff.
