Distance Learning Services for Students: Research Resources

This guide addresses some of the questions you may have as a distance learning student.

Basic Research Tools

UGA Libraries home page. The starting point for library research and library services.

Multisearch: Find books and articles with a single search. The default search box on the home page.

GILFind: The book, ebook and video catalog. This is the "Books & More" search on the home page. If your book is not available at UGA, you can search and borrow from other University System of Georgia (USG) libraries.

GALILEO@UGA: A collection of hundreds of useful databases (many, but not all, of which are also searched when you use Multisearch) . Access the databases by title through the Databases A-Z button, or use the Research by Subject button to get suggested databases for a subject area.


Interlibrary Loan

Our Interlibrary Loan Department will locate and request articles from other libraries for you.  They provide an online request form, and the turnaround time for getting articles is generally a few days.  If you have any questions about the ILL process, please contact that department directly at 706 542-0643.
