Before you start searching in the Libraries databases, it is sometimes helpful to get a concise overview of your topic. Here are some good places to start.
Statista: A statistics portal that gathers data on more than 80,000 topics from a wide variety of sources. Includes market research, consumer and industry reports, and more.
The Multi-Search is a resource which allows you to search 130 of our databases and our Libraries print catalog at the same time.
ProQuest Central is a resource which allows you to search 30 databases which are not indexed in the Multi-Search.
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 500 databases and this resource searches only a quarter of them. There are several excellent databases that aren't in the Multi Search!
ProQuest Central allows you to search a portion of the databases NOT in the Multi-Search (30 in total). If you aren't finding what you want in the Multi-Search, try ProQuest Central.
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 too many articles and books in your results, try going to a specific database listed below.
UGA organizes research databases by subject. These individual databases can be a lot useful when researching wide reaching topics.
Simply click on the area you're studying and you'll see a list of databases that a Librarian has picked out.
A good database to start with is Web of Science, but don't limit yourself to just one database!
