The MAGNOLIA databases is an excellent site to begin research on a myriad of topic. Bookmark this site on your computer at home! A password is needed to access this site from home; password for OTMS is magn0897.
MAGNOLIA was established during the May 1997 legislative session, under the auspices of the Council on Educational Technology, when the MS Legislature appropriated funds for the purchase of databases for all MS public funded libraries. Without this statewide project our libraries would not have the access to such a vast number of full text journal articles. Please take advantage of these databases so that our legislators will continue funding this project.
