Library Resource Updates

The University Libraries announce the following updates to our collections:

Canadian Newsstream (ProQuest)
Canadian Newsstand (ProQuest) is now Canadian Newsstream (ProQuest). Effective July 1, 2018, all links to Canadian Newsstand (ProQuest) will be updated to the new title. Canadian Newsstream (ProQuest) offers unparalleled access to the full text of over 190 Canadian newspapers from Canada’s leading publishers. This full text database includes the complete available electronic backfile for most newspapers, providing full access to the articles, columns, editorials and features published in each. Some backfiles date as far back as the late 1970s.

International Newsstream (ProQuest)
International Newspapers (ProQuest Newspapers) is now included in International Newsstream (ProQuest). Effective July 1, 2018, all links to International Newspapers (ProQuest Newspapers) will be removed from the library website and all combined newspaper content will be available via International Newsstream (ProQuest). International Newsstream provides the most recent news content outside of the US and Canada, with archives which stretch back decades featuring newspapers, newswires, and news sites in active full-text format.

L’Année philologique
The University Libraries support Georgia Southern University by providing access to information, collections, and services designed to meet the scholarly needs of the University and the general public. As part of this effort, the Libraries continually review our database subscriptions to ensure that we provide the best possible mix of resources and research tools. Due to cost and low use, L’Année philologique has been identified for cancelation effective immediately. All links to L’Année philologique will be removed from the library website effective July 1, 2018.

The Reflector
As part of regular maintenance, The Reflector will be removed from the A-Z Database List effective July 1, 2018. The Reflector remains available via Digital Commons, Discover @ Georgia Southern, and GIL-Find (Library Catalog).

GIL-Find Library Catalog Getting a New Look

A new GIL-Find user interface is coming!

All USG Libraries will move to the new GIL-Find user interface on May 21, 2018. The new user interface (UI) replaces the current GIL-Find and will provide a simpler, cleaner user interface as well as new functionality.

What are the improvements?

  • Information that was formerly isolated under separate tabs is now on one screen:
    • Navigate through records by either scrolling or clicking on a section
    • See other libraries that own the book without having to click on “More USG Libraries”
  • Plus, citation, emailing, and saving can be done directly from the results list.
  • Select more than one facet at a time and exclude a facet from your results.
  • Users will be able to add tags to records.

Where did that go?

Drop downs for “exact”, “starts” with, and “contains” have been removed from the Simple Search and are now only on the Advanced search.

Links that were previously in the footer had to be moved to the header. Tip: look for the ellipsis ‘Show More’ to see them.

Access Course Reserves from the GIL-Find drop-down or go to the Advanced Search.

IMPORTANT NOTEAny previously saved links may send users to the old version of GIL Find so users may need to update their bookmarks.
