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.
We are working on a new UGA Libraries web site.
Help us to organize our content, by taking the card sort survey. It’s a fun drag-and-drop puzzle and only takes a few minutes.
Thank you for helping us to make a better web site!
Questions? Comments? Email Deborah Stanley: email@example.com
UPDATE: The survey is now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated!
The library is redesigning its web site, and we want to hear from our faculty on what you want from the new site!
We are holding two focus groups, one on Tuesday, June 16th at 10:30, and the other on Wednesday, June 17th at 2:30, where we will ask a group of about half a dozen faculty members to join us for a conversation on what you do and don’t like about the current site, and how the new site can support your research and teaching.
Each focus group should take no more than an hour, and we will ply you with food and beverages to show our appreciation!
If you would like to take part, please email the UGA Libraries’ Web Editor, Deborah Stanley, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you like pizza, and you would like to share your thoughts about the UGA Libraries web site, this opportunity is for you!
We’re working on a redesign of our web site, and we need some undergraduate students to take part in a focus group to help us figure out the best design.
Here’s what it involves:
- The focus group will last no more than an hour, from 11:30-12:30 on Tuesday, April 21st at the Main Library.
- We’ll provide free pizza and soft drinks.
- We’ll ask the group some broad questions about the site, what you think of it, how we might improve it, etc. It will be a casual conversation, with one librarian leading the discussion, and a couple of librarians observing and taking notes.
- We will not be recording the focus group, and all your comments will be kept anonymous.
We plan to have 8 students in the group, and we want to get a representative sample from across the University.
Please email Deborah Stanley at email@example.com if you are interested in taking part!
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
Tout Voltaire brings you in fully searchable form all of Voltaire’s works apart from his correspondence. This plain-text version (without critical apparatus or notes) is the most reliable version available anywhere on the web.
Tout Voltaire is made available free of charge by the Voltaire Foundation (University of Oxford) and the ARTFL Project (University of Chicago).
Students: Would you like to help us improve our web site? Would you like to earn a free $10 print/copy card? If so, please consider helping us out with some usability testing of our web site. The test involves sitting down with one of our staff and trying to complete a number of tasks on our site, while we observe and take notes, as well as sharing your opinions with us. It’s totally painless and can yield some very interesting information!
If you are a UGA student, and you are interested in this and can spare an hour at some point between May 13th and May 24th, please contact Deborah Stanley at email@example.com for more information.
The twenty wire recordings from the Herman E. Talmadge Collection were digitized last year and are now available online. These recordings document the 1948 and 1950 gubernatorial races and the bitter fights held in the aftermath of the Georgia Supreme Court’s decision to favor Lieutenant Governor M.E. Thompson’s claim to the governorship following the death of Eugene Talmadge in 1946. These are raucous, rowdy recordings that include debate on the County Unit System, stump speeches, and victory rallies, and include M.E. Thompson, Ellis Arnall, E.D. Rivers, John W. Greer, Ralph McGill, Roy V. Harris, and of course, Herman Talmadge – all found HERE.
