How do I get the GALILEO password?
Many students, faculty, and staff have experience using GALILEO for their research; however, SuperSearch and GALILEO are the same search. SuperSearch is the main search box on the library homepage (www.library.kennesaw.edu). In addition you no longer have to learn a new password each semester. To use SuperSearch if you are off campus you will simply input your NetID and password to login.
You can also reach GALILEO using your NetID/password by using the Find a Database link on the library homepage under the SuperSearch box and finding it in alphabetical order under the Gs.
In fact, in most cases off-campus access to library resources requires only your Net ID and password, but you can obtain the GALILEO password by following the directions below:
From the Library Home Page:
1. Go to "Useful Links"
2. Select "Library Account"
3. Log in with your KSU ID number (Instution ID), Last Name and Library Pin. If you don't have a library PIN, one will be emailed to your KSU email if you click Get My Pin. Once logged in, the GALILEO Password is below your profile information.
Stop by any library Check Out Desk and they can give you the password.
To access GALILEO directly use the following URL:http://www.galileo.usg.edu
The GALILEO password changes every semester.
