Emory Library Catalog
Emory University houses the best humanities research library in the Southeast. Because they buy only scholarly books and journals, their catalog, called EUCLID, is a great place to do a quick check for books on your subject. (Once you find a particular book, you can request it through our Interlibrary Loan office, or you can check out the books directly from Emory. See me for details.)
Georgia university and K12 students have access to this extraordinary gateway to hundreds of electronic databases. This will be your best friend and primary research tool this semester.
