UGA Libraries is marking Black History Month this February by sharing e-resources and other unique materials about African American contributions through scavenger hunts at the largest campus library locations.
The University of Georgia Libraries are pleased to announce the naming of three new leaders who join University Librarian and Associate Provost Toby Graham in providing direction-setting and oversight for the libraries.
Newest to UGA is Sara Wright who started her role as Associate University Librarian for Learning Services and Academic Engagement in January. Wright formerly served as director of Cornell University’s Mann & Science Cluster Libraries, and her career at Cornell included stints as Academic Technology Librarian; Head of User Services and Engagement; and Head of Learning, Spaces, and Technology.

From technology and data tips to conquering imposter syndrome, UGA students can learn the skills they need to allow their research to blossom through the Spring Into Research workshop series, presented by UGA Libraries.
The free online classes will familiarize students with the tools and services available online and on campus that can help you with your research. Whether you need tips on finding relevant research for your literature review or you are looking for new technologies to enhance your work, we have a session for you.
These free classes are open to all students and may be especially helpful for graduate students, with sessions specializing on data and citation management as well as other skills key to preparing a dissertation or thesis.
A number of UGA Libraries will operate under limited hours during the intersession period between the fall and spring semesters, with all locations closed for winter break beginning Dec. 24, reopening Jan. 3.
Intersession hours will be in place at the Main Library, McBay Science Library, and Miller Learning Center beginning Wednesday, Dec. 14, which means that the locations will not be open for the usual night hours. The MLC will be closed during weekends, and all locations will be closed on Sundays until classes resume on Jan. 9.
Need help with your research? Librarians and research experts at the University of Georgia are hosting the virtual Spring into Research series to provide students with the tools they need to research, write papers and dissertations, and present their projects.
Students can sign up for any or all of the 12 individual workshops offered Monday, March 21 through Friday March, 25 via Zoom.
EITS will conduct network maintenance that will result in complete outages of campus Internet access and campus information systems on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 6:00 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. This outage is expected to cause a major disruption to library services and resources, both on campus and off campus.
Please make note that unlike previous planned network maintenances where there were intermittent outages, this maintenance will result in a complete outage of access to services. UGA students faculty, staff, and students should be aware of interruptions to library services, which will impact those accessing resources on campus or at home.
