Background Information

Articles & Books

  • GILFind Catalog of what the UGA Libraries own and where we keep it.
  • GIL Express: Catalog of libraries across the University System of Georgia; click "Request" to get a book from another library.
  • WorldCat: A global catalog of library collections. Find materials in libraries in your community or around the world.
  • Google Books and HathiTrust Digitized print collections from a number of major university libraries. Both are useful for mining the contents of books on library shelves. Most of the books from the 20th-21st century are still in copyright and can only be viewed in snippets online. You can still often view tables of contents and introductions as well as search for keywords within the book. Once you've identified a book you can use, search GIL-Find to see if UGA owns it.
