The Libraries homepage is huge, and contains information abou all of the 5 million books, over 400 databases, 20 million online articles, 500,000 ebooks, and other materials UGA owns to help you with you research. This can be overwhelming, so here are some tips to help you get to where you need to go.
The Multi-Search is a resource which allows you to search over 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 400 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 to many articles and books in your results, try going to a specific database listed below.
