Visible Body Apps is available via the the A-Z Database ListGIL-Find (Library Catalog), and Discover @ Georgia Southern.

FDsys Is Now govinfo
Launched February 2016, govinfo is a service of the United States Government Publishing Office (GPO) and provides free public access to official publications from all three branches of the Federal Government. See what’s available, including information on individual publications or collections of content, or view an alphabetical list of collections, publications, other resources, and external partner sites.

FDsys has now been replaced by govinfo. The Libraries will remove all links to FDsys on Monday, December 3rd, 2018. Please begin using govinfo now, which is available via the A-Z Database List, GIL-Find (Library Catalog), and Discover @ Georgia Southern.

FDsys provides public access to government information submitted by Congress and federal agencies and preserved as technology changes.

 

EBSCO Now Supports Diacritics
Discover @ Georgia Southern and the Libraries’ other EBSCOhost databases now supports searching with diacritics. Researchers are able to use the appropriate diacritic mark for specific words in their native language, allowing more precise search results. A diacritic is a mark that indicates pronunciation of a word. Sometimes a diacritic indicates a different word in the same language. Examples include:

  • Campaña (Spanish “campaign”) vs. Campana (Spanish “bell”)
  • Höra (Swedish “to listen”) vs. Hora (Spanish “hour”)
