Intermittent Google Scholar access problems

Submitted by Deborah on Fri, 04/26/2019

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.

The Russell Library Remembers Miss Eunice Mixon

Submitted by Ashton Ellett on Thu, 03/07/2019

Eunice L. Mixon, one of the most colorful characters in Georgia political history, passed away on November 22. She was laid to rest yesterday after a funeral service at the First Baptist Church of Tifton. “Miss Eunice,” a mainstay of civic life and Georgia politics for more than four decades, was 87 years old.

Although Mixon neither ran for nor held elective office herself, she backed and boosted the campaigns of many who did—usually while attired in pink and sporting a matching parasol. A ubiquitous presence in Georgia Democratic circles since the 1970s, she began working locally on behalf of Democratic candidates before becoming more involved at the statewide level. In that role, Mixon epitomized the sort of grassroots, retail politics familiar at the time.
