Question

Q: What is GALILEO?

Answer

From GALILEO's website:

"GALILEO stands for GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online, an initiative of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. GALILEO is an online library portal to authoritative, subscription-only information that isn’t available through free search engines or Web directories. Participating institutions may access over 100 databases indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. Over 10,000 journal titles are provided in full-text. Other resources include encyclopedias, business directories, and government publications."

Many students, faculty, and staff have experience using GALILEO for their research; however, SuperSearch and GALILEO use the same search. 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. SuperSearch is on the front of the library homepage. The link directly to GALILEO can be found in alphabetical order in the Find a Database list on the library homepage under the SuperSearch box.

To acces GALILEO directly use the following URL: http://www.galileo.usg.edu
