UGA students, faculty, and staff can read many newspapers for free through the University Libraries with a MyID and password. Here are a few of the options:
Beginning Monday, May 13, most Kanopy streaming videos will need to be requested before viewing.
Previously, UGA users were able to view many films on the Kanopy site simply by opening them. After a film received a small number of views – no matter how brief – the UGA Libraries had to pay a substantial annual license fee for that film. As use has increased, our costs have risen sharply to the point that we can no longer afford to offer unmediated access. While moving to request-based (mediated) access may not be as convenient, we are making this change to enable us to continue to provide access to Kanopy films but in a more sustainable way.
UGA users are having intermittent problems accessing Google Scholar. The Google Scholar search box on our homepage directs all Google Scholar searches through our proxy server, so that it recognizes you are coming from UGA and shows you links to full text articles provided by UGA Libraries. Unfortunately, in some cases Google Scholar is blocking these searches and displaying an " Invalid domain for site key" error message. You may also experience it if you start at https://scholar.google.com, rather than the Libraries homepage.
This problem is being experienced by other libraries as well. We believe it's a Google Scholar problem, but we are continuing to try to find a solution.
There are a couple of options you can try, which might work to get you in:
Option 1: Add our institutional ID to your search:
First, close your browser window and start a new session.
BrowZine lets you browse many of our scholarly journals on your phone or tablet. You can set up a bookshelf of favorite journals and receive alerts when they publish new articles or issues.
All you need to do is download the BrowZine app under the UGA Libraries’ subscription. The app is free for all UGA affiliates.
For details, see our BrowZine guide.
The University of Georgia will conduct network maintenance on Saturday, March 9 beginning at 8:00 a.m. This means that both campus internet and campus information systems will be down, possibly all day.
For the Libraries, this means that you will not be able to login to our computers, and our systems (e.g., websites and other resources) will be inaccessible. You will still be able to check out books.
Special Collections will also be affected. The outage will impact their ability to provide access to materials. If you would like to view materials on Saturday, please contact Special Collections at email@example.com or 706-542-7123 by 12pm on Friday, March 8th.
GIL and GALILEO will only be accessible if you are using a *non-UGA internet service provider* at the following URLs:

A 19th-century ledger and scrapbook from the Coastal Heritage Society features entries from the the Civil War period recorded by employees of the Central Rail Road and Banking Company of Georgia. Now digitized, the items can be found at https://dlg.usg.edu/collection/chso_cgrc.
The ledger was digitized and described as part of the Digital Library of Georgia's 2018 Competitive Digitization grant program, a funding opportunity intended to broaden DLG partner participation for statewide historic digitization projects.
GIS Day is set for Wednesday Nov. 14 at the Main Library and will take place from 10-2.
There will be a variety of activities, including lightning talks, drone demonstrations, an augmented reality sandbox, and a Mapathon. We'll also have tables featuring campus and local organizations, as well as snacks (and cake!)
The Teacher’s Monthly Reports Collection, monthly teacher reports from African-American rural and city schools operating from 1930 to 1939 in Laurens County, Georgia, is now available online, thanks in part to the DLG's 2018 Competitive Digitization grant program, a funding opportunity intended to broaden DLG partner participation for statewide historic digitization projects.
The link is: https://dlg.usg.edu/collection/zhe_tmr.
These monthly reports were created by individual teachers to be submitted to the Laurens County Superintendent. The reports list student names, age, grade and attendance for the month. Many of these records also show teacher salaries, addresses, and other information. The DLG has digitized 126 folders with reports for 58 schools.
The Pinebranch, the first student publication of South Georgia State Normal College and Georgia State Woman's College (both earlier names for Valdosta State University) is now available online.
The Pinebranch was a literary magazine published from September or October of 1917 to May of 1934. In addition to stories and poetry, the magazine included editorials, and news from campus and alumni. The digitized issues are available at https://vtext.valdosta.edu/xmlui/handle/10428/720/discover thanks in part to the DLG's 2017 Competitive Digitization grant program, a funding opportunity intended to broaden DLG partner participation for statewide historic digitization projects.
