Take our Multi-Search Survey!

December 6, 2010 – 1:54 PM

Please take a few minutes to check out our new Multi-Search service and fill out the survey! Multi-Search is currently a trial service, and we are eager to hear your feedback. Check it out at http://www.libs.uga.edu/multisearch or from the Multi-Search tab on our home page. Once you are in Multi-Search and have done a search, you can click on the blue “Give Us Your Feedback” button on the results page to share your opinions with us. Alternatively, you can go directly to the survey here.

Multi-Search allows users to search a significant portion of the Libraries’ resources from a single search box. It is the UGA Libraries’ trial implementation of the Ebsco Discovery Service, and 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.
