Question of the Week: GALILEO Password

February 9, 2009 – 11:49 AM

What is it?
The GALILEO password lets you access article databases from off campus.  Our article databases (Jstor, Academic Search Complete, and hundreds of others) available through the UGA libraries are in GALILEO at  We pay subscriptions to these databases, so access is limited to current UGA affiliates (students, faculty, and staff).  If you are off campus, you will be asked for the GALILEO password when you try to get to a database through GALILEO.  If you try to go to the database directly, bypassing GALILEO, you may be asked for a username and password – this is your signal to go back and go through GALILEO!

How do I get it?

To get the password, log in to your library account.

If you can’t get in to your library account, you may have fines due or there may be a mistake in your enrollment status.  Give the Circulation Desk a call at (706) 542-3256 and they can straighten things out for you.
