Honors Scholars: UGA's resources

Libraries Homepage

The Multi-Search is a resource which allows you to search 130 of our databases and our Libraries print catalog at the same time.  

This means you can search broadly for your topic amongst databases which contain newspapers, magazines, and scholarly articles and books.  

Things to remember:

1) The Multi Search doesn't search everything the Libraries has access to electronically.  We have over 500 databases and this resource searches only a quarter of them.  There are several excellent databases that aren't in the Multi Search!  

2) Beware of the fire hydrant effect!  If you've ever done a broad search in Google you've experienced this.  Hundreds of thousands of results, only a few actually what you need.  If you're getting too many articles and books in your results, try going to a specific database, organized by subject to the right.  There are over 500 different databases accessible through the Libraries Homepage.

Finding Specific Articles

If you're looking for a specific journal article, click on "Journals by Title," and type in the name of the Journal where it was published, or the ISSN of the journal.  This will tell you which databases have the full text of the article you want.
