What am I searching?

Library Catalog: Search for books/e-books, theses, journal TITLES, media, archival materials, maps, and other material in the GT Library collections.

Articles+: Search for selected journal, magazine, and newspaper articles available to GT students, faculty, and staff.  

(Note: Search individual databases when you want specialized resources with more robust search options.)

Emory Shared Collection: Search for books and other resources from the Emory Library materials housed in the Library Service Center.

Everything: Search for a broad range of print and online books, journal articles, reviews, and other materials available to GT students, faculty and staff from the GT Library collections; the Emory Library materials housed in the Library Service Center; and from a mega-aggregation of hundreds of millions of scholarly e-resources harvested from publishers and aggregators, and from open-access repositories.

(Note: Some of the resources indexed in the Everything search are items that are not available directly from the GT Library. These materials can be requested through Interlibrary Loan using the links provided.)

Search Tips:

  • For phrases use quotation marks: "global warming"
  • For truncated searches use an asterisk: vaccinat* to find vaccination, vaccinate, etc.
  • To include any word or phrase use OR: airplane OR helicopter
  • To exclude a term use NOT: cheese NOT cheddar
  • To group terms use brackets: (airplane OR helicopter) NOT jet
  • To search for a journal title enter it into the search box and choose the Library Catalog search
