New Multi-Search service goes live!

November 1, 2010 – 11:12 AM

There’s a new tab on our homepage today! Multi-Search allows users to search a significant portion of the Libraries’ resources from a single search box. Multi-Search, which is the UGA Libraries’ trial implementation of the Ebsco Discovery Service, contains over ninety databases plus the GIL@UGA Library Catalog. It will gradually expand to include locally-produced databases from the Digital Library of Georgia as well as additional commercial databases such as LexisNexis and JSTOR. Although EBSCO is a company that produces many of our GALILEO databases, Multi-Search will also include databases from other vendors.

Multi-Search lets you manipulate your search results in a number of different ways, including limiting to full-text online or peer-reviewed journals. In addition, you can save or email your results or export them to our bibliographic reference managers RefWorks and EndNote.

Some of the most popular databases that are currently part of Multi-Search include:

Academic Search Complete
ERIC
Medline
MLA Bibliography
Newspaper Source Plus
PsycINFO

Check out Multi-Search at http://www.libs.uga.edu/multisearch or from the Multi-Search tab on our home page. We’d love to hear from you! Please share your feedback on Multi-Search.
