Use Multi-Search or Google Scholar to Search for Articles on a topic

Our Multi-Search service, available on our home page, searches about 130 GALILEO databases for articles, books and other resources.

Alternatively, use Google Scholar from our home page to find articles and link to full text if we have it.


Use a Subject-Specific Database to Search for Articles on a Topic

To access recommended databases for your subject area, go directly to GALILEO@UGA, or click on the "Research by Subject" button on the Libraries' home page.

For a list of databases selected for your specific class, go to GALILEO@UGA, or click on the "Resources by Course" button on the Libraries' home page.


Already Have the Article Information (Citation or Reference)?

A citation is the information about an article, such as the article title, which journal it was published in, and when, that enables you to get hold of the article itself.  [See: Deciphering a Citation]


In Multi-Search:

  • The easiest thing to do is to go to the Libraries homepage and paste the title of the article into the Multi-Search box. If the full text is available in Multi-Search, it may give you a pdf, or you may need to click on the find it at uga button button to see if there is full text online. It will also tell you if we have the article in print. 


Searching for the Journal by Title:

  • Not all of our electronic journals are in Multi-Search. If you don't find the article there, you can use the "E-Journals by Title" search on our homepage, or go directly to the GIL-Find Library Catalog's Journal Search, to see if we have own the the journal in electronic format.
  • To find out if we own it in print, go to the GIL-Find Library Catalog and click on Browse Search at the top of the screen. Then choose 'browse by title' and type in the journal title.
