Getting Around in GALILEO
You want to do a search. You've heard about the wonders of the Great GALILEO. You go there for the first time your jaw drops and you start to get nervous. All you want to do is a search and there's all these links where do you start?
A tool as powerful as GALILEO is a little more complex than riding a bicycle because it has to be. But, once you familiarize yourself with the interface, GALILEO will serve as a powerful tool in your research process.
GALILEO is a work that is always in progress, changing, improving, adapting to the needs of its users. So, be aware that some of the GALILEO screens and databases available may change over time, but their underlying principles won't.
