Welcome to MAGNOLIA

MAGNOLIA is a project funded by the state legislature that provides online research databases for publicly funded K-12 schools, public libraries, community college libraries, and university libraries in Mississippi.

MAGNOLIA provides students and researchers in the state access to reliable, academic peer-reviewed journals and curated age-appropriate content which are not available through public searches.

To access the databases, visit your school library or public library, or request an access code from your librarian.

History of the project

MAGNOLIA was founded in 1997 when Mississippi legislators appropriated $568,000 to purchase online databases for publicly funded libraries in Mississippi. Senator Grey Ferris of Vicksburg was instrumental in bringing this project to the legislature. In 2022, the Legislature increased MAGNOLIA funding from $1,000,000 to $1,350,000.
