New Electronic Resources

The University Library has a few new electronic resources to let you know about:

Georgia Historic Newspapers
Georgia's historic newspapers have been available in the Digital Library of Georgia through multiple, online city and regional newspaper archives since 2007. Now the DLG’s newest website, Georgia Historic Newspapers (GHN), brings together new and existing resources into a single, consolidated website. The new site offers an improved interface and greater search capability. It is compatible with all current browsers, and the newspaper page images can be viewed without the use of plug-ins (no more djvu!) or additional software downloads.

The GHN includes some of the state’s earliest newspapers; important African-American, Roman Catholic, and Cherokee newspapers; and issues from Augusta, Atlanta, Columbus, Fayetteville, Houston county, Louisville, Thomson, Sandersville, Waycross, and Waynesboro. All previously digitized newspapers are scheduled to be incorporated into the new GHN platform. Until that time, users may continue to access the existing regional and city sites (North, South, West Georgia, Athens, Macon, Milledgeville, and Savannah) via the Digital Library of Georgia. The Milledgeville and the South Georgia historic newspapers are slated to be integrated into GHN next.

Pediatric Care Online
Pediatric Care Online from the American Academy of Pediatrics brings together many leading pediatric resources into one integrated source, including Red Book Online, Pediatric Patient Education, AAP Textbook of Pediatric Care, Bright Futures, Pediatric Drug Look-up, Antimicrobial Therapy Guide, Interactive Periodicity Schedule, Common Pediatric Medical Procedures Videos, and Signs & Symptoms Search.

Ulrichsweb
Ulrichsweb is an authoritative knowledgebase of information about more than 300,000 serials of all types from around the world -- academic and scholarly journals, peer-reviewed titles, online publications, newspapers and other resources.

If you have any questions about using these resources please contact a Research Services Librarian.

Introducing Nexis Uni

LexisNexis Academic is becoming Nexis Uni - all of the content from LexisNexis Academic but on a new platform. Nexis Uni features more than 15,000 news, business and legal sources from LexisNexis—including U.S. Supreme Court decisions dating back to 1790—with an intuitive interface that offers quick discovery across all content types, personalization features such as Alerts and saved searches and a collaborative workspace with shared folders and annotated documents.

LexisNexis Academic will remain available until sometime during the Fall semester but we encourage you to start using the new interface now. Please contact a Research Services Librarian if you have any questions.
