When you get started on a research topic, it may be helpful to read an encyclopedia article or check a dictionary definition. We have two good reference databases that contain these types of tools:
Scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 5,300 full-text periodicals, 4,400 peer-reviewed journals. Indexing and abstracts for more than 9,300 journals and 10,900 publications including monographs, reports, conference proceedings, etc.
Provides access to full-text journals across a wide range of subject areas including arts, business, children, education, general interest, health, humanities, international, law, military, multicultural, psychology, sciences, social sciences, and women's interests. 2,600+ publications.
GALILEO: Stands for GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online. This portal gives you access to multiple databases. To use GALILEO you must have permission to access it, which is provided through your library.
Resource Sharing: "Interlibrary Loan" is a general term for any system of sharing between libraries. At Ingram (UWG Library) this department is called Resource Sharing. It assists library users with getting access to materials that the user can not access on their own.
