Multi-Search: A combined search of GIL and about 100 GALILEO databases including ones for articles in literature, history, film, art, music, and more. Search tips:
--Put phrases and titles in quotation marks: "sonny's blues"
--Not finding enough on a specific text? Go to 'Advanced Search' and choose "Also search within the full text of the articles."
