GALILEO

GALILEO stands for GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online, an initiative of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. A World Wide Web-based virtual library, GALILEO provides access to multiple information resources, including secured access to licensed products. Participating institutions may access over 100 databases indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. Over 2000 journal titles are provided in full-text. Other resources include encyclopedias, business directories, and government publications.

The community of more than 2000 GALILEO institutions includes the University System of Georgia, K-12 schools, public libraries, the adult technical institutes and colleges, and a group of private academic colleges and universities. At this time, only educational institutions are eligible to participate in GALILEO. Through collaboration and resource sharing, Galileo seeks to provide equal access to information for all Georgia citizens. While individual libraries benefit from the cooperative sharing of resources – lower costs and increased access to a wider range of materials – the goal is to improve library services for all Georgia citizens. No matter where a citizen lives in the state of Georgia, a library nearby provides access to GALILEO.

Accessing GALILEO

It’s on the web, but you aren’t accessing the databases for free. They are purchased for your use by the University System of Georgia. Your GALILEO password is your key to opening the door. The databases that are available in GALILEO vary depending on whether you are in a public academic library, a private academic library, or a public library.  If you’re enrolled in a course at a University System of Georgia school you can access GALILEO from home with your password. You can access a smaller number of databases using a password provided by your public library. If you are a patron of the Statesboro Regional Library System you may contact us to obtain a password.
