All campus computers automatically have access to GALILEO, but if you work from home, you'll need a password. The password changes every semester, so make sure the one you use is current.
An easy way to get access: go to iCollege, click on the GALILEO link in the top banner and you're in!
GALILEO has developed a new DISCOVER tool that allows you to search multiple sources and the library catalog at once.
Things you should know:
Atlanta has its own popular magazine where you might find some helpful information. We have the last two years in print at the Dunwoody LRC. You can search for your topic and read the last ten years of articles using the MasterFile Elite database. Grab this search and add your keyword in the second box.
WARNING: Atlanta magazine is not a scholarly journal!
GALILEO (left hand column on library website or click here) is a collection of databases which each have thousands of articles from journals and magazines.
The GALILEO home page has a single search box called "Discover GALILEO." If you would like to try that tool, please look at the tips in the box to the left.. For best results, we recommend either using the "Browse by Subject" or "Databases A-Z" tab to get to these recommended databases:
Academic Search Complete (requires GALILEO password)
LexisNexis Academic (requires GALILEO password)
Environment Complete (requires GALILEO password)
Opposing Viewpoints in Context (requires your GPC username and password)
CQ Press Electronic Library (requires your GPC username and password)
Gale Virtual Reference Library (requires your GPC username and password)
There are also hundreds of specialty databases for you to use. "Browse by Subject" will help you choose.
GALILEO resources are mostly selected by the colleges and universities of Georgia. GPC has selected some databases and other resources we think are perfect for our classes. You will find a list of them at this URL: http://guides.gpc.edu/az.php?v=25596
In order to access these resources, you'll need to enter your GPC username and password.
