If you are off campus, when you click the name of a database, you will be asked for your Campus ID and password. After that, you'll have full access to the database*. But in order to get that access, the database has to identify you as GSU faculty/student/staff.
*There are a very few databases that you can't access this way (looking at you, Ancestry Library Edition) and are only usable in the actual library building). These are clearly marked in the database listings as ON CAMPUS USE ONLY.

GSU works with companies who sell us access to our various databases.
Two of our big database providers are EBSCO and ProQuest.
Once you understand how to search in an EBSCO database, you'll have a good sense of how to search in other EBSCO databases.
Once you understand how to search in a ProQuest database, you'll have a good sense of how to search in other ProQuest databases.
Most databases will have an Advanced Search option where you can
Combine search terms by using multiple search boxes
Limit your search to scholarly/peer-reviewed articles
Limit your search by date of publication (helpful if you know you need the most recent scholarship, or need materials published during a particular time period)
