Online Journal and Magazines

As a CGTC student, you can read thousands of articles online from scholarly journals in your field.  Use the search boxes to access our two biggest journal databases.  NOTE: Off-campus users will need the GALILEO password.

Health Technology Search
  • Enter your search terms in the boxes to the left to get started searching for online journal articles. 
  • Choose your search terms based on your topic.  You can start your search using keywords and subjects, as you would when searching for a library book.
  • Combine search terms with the word "and"
    • anaphylactic shock and treatment
    • paramedic and best practice and technology
    • emergency medicine and disaster recovery and katrina
  • Be sure to limit your results to peer-reviewed and/or scholarly articles. Both EBSCO and ProQuest have a check box on the results page to limit your results list.

Print Journals and Newspapers

periodical shelves on the Macon campus

Printed newspapers, magazines, and journals are available at all three campus libraries. Choose your campus below to see a list of magazines.  

Magazines and newspapers are for use inside the library only.  A copier is available for black and white photocopies.


Search Limiters

Using broad search terms (like "emergency medicine") will return a large number of articles.  To narrow your results, you can use the following search limiting tools available:

  1. Full-text: By default, your search should be limited to full-text articles only.  Be sure to check that this option is selected.
  2. 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 - use the timeline option to limit your date range.
  3. 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 "cardiac arrest and defibrilator", "paramedic and career advancement", "mortality and response time and emergency medical services".
