The problem we were having with our e-journals and ‘find it’ service has now been fixed. Services should be back to normal. If you encounter any problems, please contact us.
Our e-journals and our “find it” service in GALILEO and Multi-Search are currently down. We apologize for the inconvenience. The staff at GALILEO are working to resolve the problem.
UPDATE: As of Friday, June 10, our off-campus access to ACS publications has been restored. If you are still experiencing difficulties accessing these journals, please contact the Libraries for assistance.
Off-campus users attempting to access American Chemical Society publications may be receiving an alert notifying them that access is blocked.
There was an excessive downloading incident at the American Chemical Society website from the UGA ez-proxy server on Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5. As a consequence, ACS has blocked the ez-proxy IP address. This also includes access to SciFinder Scholar via ez-proxy. The incident was part of a coordinated attack on ACS with excessive downloading occurring at multiple sites around the country.
Our access to ACS journals via the ez-proxy server remains blocked at this time. Per ACS the breach was so egregious (involving dozens of institutions in the U.S. and other countries) that the company is not releasing blocked IPs at this time.
While off-campus access is blocked, computers in the Main Library, Science Library, and Miller Learning Center should be able to access the materials without hindrance. Other on-campus computers may also have access.
We will update this post as the situation changes. In the meantime, UGA users off-campus may contact Ian Thomas (email@example.com) or any member of the Libraries Reference department for information about accessing these journals.
As we look forward to a new fiscal year starting in July, the UGA Libraries are seeking your recommendations. We have limited funds for major purchases like new journal subscriptions or databases, so we would like to make sure that we choose the resources best suited to your needs. If you’re a UGA student, faculty member, or employee, you can help us by completing this brief survey: Library Collections Survey. The survey will be open through the end of spring semester, so please take the survey soon to make sure your voice is heard. Thank you in advance for your participation!
The GALILEO@UGA software update was completed last night, and the site is now available again: http://www.libs.uga.edu/research/
We are updating the software on which our GALILEO@UGA subject lists and class guides run, this evening (Monday, August 3rd), beginning 9pm. It may be down for a few hours.
During that time, you can still get to our databases through the statewide GALILEO interface: http://www.galileo.usg.edu/scholar/ugalibs/search/
In addition, Multi-Search on the Libraries’ home page will be unaffected.
The electronic archive of Savannah’s historic newspapers has recently been expanded through the Digital Library of Georgia, based at the University of Georgia Libraries.
The Savannah Historic Newspapers Archive provides online access to 17 newspaper titles published in Savannah from 1809 to 1880. Consisting of more than 103,000 newspaper pages, the archive provides historical images that are both full-text searchable and can be browsed by date. Additionally, the site is compatible with all current browsers without the use of plug-ins or software downloads.
The archive now includes the following Savannah newspaper titles: Daily Morning News (1850-1864), Daily News and Herald (1866-1868) and Savannah Daily Herald (1865-1866), in addition to the titles previously included in the archive: Daily Georgian (1835-1847), Daily Republican (1839-1840), Daily Savannah Republican (1829-1839), Georgian (1819-1823, 1829-1835), Republican and Savannah Evening Ledger (1809-1816), Savannah Daily Georgian (1853-1856), Savannah Daily Morning News (1868), Savannah Daily Republican (1818-1824, 1840-1852, 1855-1858, 1866-1867), Savannah Georgian (1825-1829, 1847-1849), Savannah Georgian and Journal (1856), Savannah Morning News (1868-1880), Savannah National Republican (1865), Savannah Republican (1816-1818, 1824-1828, 1853-1855, 1858-1865) and Weekly Georgian (1839-1841). The archive is available athttp://dlg.galileo.usg.edu/savnewspapers.
The Savannah Historic Newspapers Archive is a project of the Digital Library of Georgia, as part of the Georgia HomePLACE initiative. The Digital Library of Georgia is a project of Georgia’s Virtual Library GALILEO and is based at the University of Georgia. Georgia HomePLACE is supported with federal LSTA funds administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Georgia Public Library Service, a unit of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.
Other newspaper archives available through the Digital Library of Georgia include the Atlanta Historic Newspapers Archive (1847-1922), the Macon Telegraph Archive (1826-1908), the Athens Historic Newspapers Archive (1827-1928), the South Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive (1845-1922), the Columbus Enquirer Archive (1828-1890), the North Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive (1850-1922), the Milledgeville Historic Newspapers Archive (1808-1920), the Southern Israelite Archive (1929-1986), the Red and Black Archive (1893-2006) and the Mercer Cluster Archive (1920-1970).

Atlanta Constitution Historical Full Text from ProQuest (available to UGA faculty, students, and staff through GALILEO) offers full-text and full-image articles from the Atlanta Constitution dating back to 1868. Access is provided to digital reproductions of every page from every available issue in downloadable PDF files. Until recently, the coverage ended in the 1940s – however, it’s a joyous day today as the coverage has now been expanded to include content up to 1984.
What happened in Atlanta from 1945-1984? Well, the obvious and perhaps most historically important subject matter now available has to do with the Civil Rights Era. But you also get:
- The Braves and Hawks moving to Atlanta, as well as the formation of the Falcons.
- The beginning of Lewis Grizzard‘s beloved columns. (And including this recently recirculated gem.)
- The establishment of the Peach Bowl.
- The first Atlanta Gay Pride Festival (in 1971!)
- The first international flights out of ATL (also 1971!)
- The election of the first African-American mayor of Atlanta, Maynard Jackson (who will later have his name appended to the airport to make it Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.)
- The opening of MARTA.
- The launch of CNN.
To sum up: So. Much. Stuff. And the best part about the ProQuest coverage of historical newspapers is that it’s not just the article text, it’s also photographs, cartoons, advertisements, etc. Essentially, it’s every page of the paper, reproduced digitally and even searchable by type.
And, as always, more recent articles from the Atlanta Journal and Constitution can be found in LexisNexis Academic (selective content, 1991-present, UGA log-in required).
Students are now automatically logged into GALILEO when they log into eLC and can search GALILEO directly from eLC without having to enter their MyID and password. Give it a try!
Please note: Some databases still require the additional MyID and password login.
We have updated GALILEO@UGA to incorporate more guidance for users. You will still find the familiar lists of databases for different subject areas, along with the A-Z list of databases and the database name search.
But we have added some things to make GALILEO@UGA more useful:
– Class-Specific Research Guides: Librarians often create research guides for specific classes. You can now access these guides from the right of the GALILEO@UGA home page. They are organized by course code.
– “How To” Guides: Ever wondered how to find different types of materials, such as government documents or videos, or how to search for primary sources or book reviews? Confused about EndNote or Refworks? This collections of guides has the answers to these issues and more!
– The popular “Multi-Search” search box – which you can also find on the Libraries’ home page – which searches over 100 GALILEO databases at once, plus the GIL library catalog.
We hope you find the new GALILEO@UGA useful! If you have any questions or comments, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
