Find Information

GIL-Find: This is the new tool to search the library catalog. The logic of it is more in tune with modern notions of search engines. It is an easier to use way of looking at the holdings of the library.

GIL: This is the older tool for searching the library catalog. It is being superseded by GIL-Find, but we are leaving it around for those who like their old friend and can get what they need from it.

GIL Universal: This tool is the gateway to all the books and media in the entire Georgia university system. It is based on the same search tool as GIL and will be familiar for users. The results show a list of titles that meet the query terms. When you click on the title, you get a list of institutions that hold the title.

GALILEO: Off campus use Augusta University NetID/JagNet ID. GALILEO stands for GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online, an initiative of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. GALILEO is an online library portal to authoritative, subscription-only information that isn’t available through free search engines or Web directories. Participating institutions may access over 100 databases indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. Over 10,000 journal titles are provided in full-text. Other resources include encyclopedias, business directories, and government publications.

Journals By A-Z: This link takes you to a page that allows you to put part or all of the title you are interested in in the search box and get a list of the databases that contain the titles that match. There are a list of tabs across the top of the body of the page giving different means of accessing the information.

Government Information: This is the gateway to the government repository information held by Reese Library. There are many tabs on this page that will take you to information search tools and explanation of terms. There is also a chat tool on the page to allow you to ask questions directly of the Government Information Librarian when she is at her computer.

Research Guides (LibGuides): This page takes you to a list of the research guides and other pages that Reese Library librarians have made to assist our users in finding research information. This is a good site to come back to frequently as more subject guides are created continuously.

Other Useful Resources:

Internet Archives: This is a grant driven link to digitized documents dealing with Augusta State University's History. There are yearbooks from Augusta State and all its predecessor organizations. This project was made possible with grants from the ASU Foundation, the Sloan Foundation and Lyrasis. The Internet Archives site has historical documents from other institutions and private individuals as well.

WorldCat: WorldCat is a service of OCLC. WorldCat is the world's largest network of library content and services. WorldCat libraries are dedicated to providing access to their resources on the Web, where most people start their search for information.

Library of Congress Catalog: The Library of Congress Online Catalog contains approximately 14 million records representing books, serials, computer files, manuscripts, cartographic materials, music, sound recordings, and visual materials. The Catalog also displays searching aids for users, such as cross-references and scope notes. The catalog records reside in a single integrated database; they are not separated according to type of material, language of material, date of cataloging, or processing/circulation status.
