To access the DSL, go to https://uoft.me/gale. You can also access the DSL through our U of T institutional connection by going to the library catalogue. The default is to search Map and Data's website. Click on the Library Search tab. Type “Digital Scholar Lab” in the search box, and click the search button.
DSL should be the first result, under Other. Click it.
Then on DSL page, click Electronic Resource under View Online.
The website will first prompt you for your University of Toronto login.
Enter your UTORid.
When logging in to the Gale Digital Scholar Lab App using either Google or Microsoft, the App accesses the user’s Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive through an anonymous access token that is created when users first log in. This anonymous token is generated in order to connect users to the content and analysis they create in the Digital Scholar Lab. The App does not collect, read, access, or store any of the data from a user’s Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive account(s), nor does it access any open documents. In addition, the App does not access or share personal information as part of this process.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
