Ace Your Golf Game with GALILEO

Ace Your Gold Game

In celebration of the Masters Tournament in Augusta next week, let’s take a look at what GALILEO offers for golf enthusiasts in Georgia.

Use the Discover GALILEO search box to search for golf* to find articles about all aspects of golf, or search for golf courses, golf equipment, golf clubs, golf techniques, or another related topic. For a more specific search, try searching for a particular golfer, tournament, or course to see articles, images, and more.

GALILEO also includes several golf magazines, including Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, Golf World, Sports Illustrated, and more. Note that you can receive email alerts when a new issue of a magazine is added to GALILEO by clicking the Alert/Save/Share link in the upper right of the page and then clicking the Email Alert link.

For a look at golf in Georgia, the New Georgia Encyclopedia has several interesting articles about the Masters Tournament and several golfers, including Bobby Jones, Tommy Aaron, Louise Suggs, and more. The Digital Library of Georgia includes many wonderful historical images of golfers and golf courses in the Vanishing Georgia and Picturing Augusta collections.

EBSCO Explora - coming this summer

Some of you may have seen announcements from EBSCO about the recent launch of Explora, the new interface that will be replacing Searchasaurus, Kids Search, and Student Research Center.

GALILEO staff will be working with EBSCO to determine our process for migrating to these new interfaces.

Because we know that major interface changes during the semester can be a challenge, we are tentatively planning for the new interface to go live in June of this year.

You can see sample screenshots of the elementary and middle/high interfaces at EBSCO’s Explora site.

If you have any questions or need more information, please use the GALILEO Contact Us feature or contact the ITS Helpdesk at helpdesk@usg.edu or 1-888-875-3697.
