The most extensive online research tool we have is MAGNOLIA, which is provided courtesy of the Mississippi State Legislature. Close to a hundred different databases can be searched for reliable information. Includes searches in magazines, newspapers, journals, business information, biographies, literary criticism, and much more.
Think of MAGNOLIA as Google on steroids. It takes a little getting used to, but it can provide invaluable information on practically anything. If you need help using it, contact the Reference Librarian.
