Library Catalogs

GIL-Find: GIL-Find is the UGA Libraries' catalog for locating books, ebooks, and media in the Main Library, Science Library, and Special Collections.

When searching for literary criticism, use the "Advanced Search," choose "In subject" and search for your author by name.

For other topics, use the standardized Library of Congress Subject Headings to locate the most relevant books. Below are some sample subject headings:

  • American literature--Asian American authors

  • American poetry--African American authors

  • American drama-- Indian authors (for Native Americans)

  • American literature -- South Asian American authors (for authors from the subcontinent of India; also East Indian Americans)

  • Puerto Ricans in literature

  • Filipino Americans -- cultural assimilation

GIL-Find also allows you to search (and borrow from) the other libraries in the University System of Georgia -- just change the search option from "University of Georgia" to "University System of Georgia. You'll also need to sign in at the top right of the screen.
