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 is the best thing to happen to the citizens of Georgia. Suddenly the homebound and the mobile, student or lay person has at their fingers what could once only be found in the best academic libraries in Georgia. No matter where they live or where they are located in their travels, at no additional cost, all Georgians can now explore their historical past, keep up with the most current news in their area of interest or be the lay scholar. Galileo has truly improved the lives of the citizens of our state.
GALILEO Georgia Library Learning Online is the award-winning virtual library of licensed, commercial databases and selected free Internet resources available to the citizens of Georgia.
