As of 3pm or so yesterday, our Gale databases were accessible again.
Thomson Gale reports that due to an internet service provider problem,
all Gale databases are currently unavailable. I’ll let you know when I

CSA reports this problem is now resolved.
A patron has alerted us to a sporadic issue with CSA databases in which a user can conduct a search and will be presented with a summary of results (1547 hits, etc.) but the actual citations do not display. CSA is aware of the problem and will (knock-on-wood) inform me when this is resolved.
