What are Research Databases?
Research databases are collections of information sources and are valuable tools for academic research. Use research databases to find articles in scholarly journals, popular magazines, newspapers, reference works, and other sources unavailable on the open web. GSU Library's research databases also contains e-books, streaming videos, and links to highly reputable websites.

GSU has many research databases, including GALILEO databases. GALILEO is a collection of databases shared by libraries in the state of Georgia. The Discover tool allows you to search many of these databases and the GSU catalog at one time. It can be a great place to start your research, but aware that it does not include all of GSU's databases.
Try the Discover Search here! If off campus, you will be prompted to enter the GALILEO password.
(You can use Discover without the password from the Library Homepage)
The DISCOVER tool allows you to search many, but not all, GALILEO databases and the library catalog at once.

No GALILEO password is needed when accessing GSU's databases from the library homepage or in iCollege.
You will need the GALILEO password if you log into GALILEO directly and sometimes when trying to open a permalink.
