Information Everywhere

Print friendly Modified April 10, 2014

GALILEO is Georgia’s Virtual Library, an online initiative of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia that provides all of the resources that are available in a traditional library: books, magazines, encyclopedias, government information, and research materials. GALILEO can be found 24X7 in homes, schools, and libraries, wherever there is an Internet connection. It’s like having a branch of the library in your own home or dorm room. Whether you are a graduate student or a preschooler, a life-long learner, or a K-12 teacher, GALILEO has quality information on your topic, safe from the hazards of the Internet. Browse magazines, trace your family tree, learn about your medicines, or do your homework using GALILEO, confident in the reliability and integrity of the information.

Look what our customers are saying...

GALILEO has been useful to me in all of my classes - from English 1101 to upper-division English courses. It allows students to find sources from around the world and to access many of these from their home computers. This is particularly useful at a school with so many students who work full time and commute. I've also appreciated the library staff's knowledge of GALILEO and specific techniques they've shared with my students that I can pass on to future classes.
