MAGNOLIA Databases

MAGNOLIA - Mississippi Alliance for Gaining New Opportunities through Library Information Access - is Mississippi's statewide consortium, which is funded by the Mississippi Legislature. MAGNOLIA provides online databases for publicly funded K-12 schools, public libraries, community college libraries, and university libraries in Mississippi.

Everyone in Mississippi through their local library or school has access to the MAGNOLIA databases which include: EBSCOhost, used to find journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, many available in full-text; Wilson Biographies, which contains the full text of the biographies from more than 100 print volumes of biographical reference books published by H.W. Wilson and other quality reference publishers; and several of the Gale Products which can be used to find criticism and biography on notable authors and poets, and business information. SIRS for Discoverer and Researcher is also available for help with papers and current event study.
