The two Artemis Source databases search across large collections of full-text and indexed publications: literature and primary sources. Not only can you search multiple databases in this interface, you can also quickly analyze the results you get. As we continue to purchase or subscribe to literary or primary source databases from Gale, these Artemis databases will increase in documents indexed.
