Choose your search terms based on your topic. You can start your searching using keywords and subjects (as you would when searching for a library book). You can search with general terms:
- business forecast
- SWOT analysis
- Georgia consumer profile
Alternatively, search with more specific terms. For example, a search for "new computer technology" will return fewer, more focuses articles than a search for "technology".

The Macon library also has a collection of newspapers, magazines, and journals are available for use inside the library. You can browse all available titles by choosing the link below. We keep new issues up front - old issues are located on adjacent shelves. Let the library staff know if you need any help finding a newspaper or magazine.
Magazines and newspapers are for use inside the library only. A copier is available for black and white photocopies.
Using broad search terms (like "Microsoft") will return a large number of articles. To narrow your results, you can use the following search limiting tools available:
- Full-text: By default, your search should be limited to full-text articles only. Be sure to check that this option is selected.
- Date: Consider your topic. You may only need articles written during a certain timeframe. If you need articles written in the last five years, five days, or only in the 1980s.
- Add keywords: The more keywords you use the better your results will be. Add additional words using connecting words like "and". Some example searches would be "microsoft and targeted marketing", "ziploc and united states and revenue". "food services and georgia and economic outlook".
