Educational Leadership: Accessing Library Resources

Visiting the Library in person

Check hours for visiting the library in person on the library homepage.

Access to the library building is by biometric scanners using a fingerprint for identification. You can register your finger print at the PantherCard Office. Here's more information about our  Library Access Policy.

You can also enter the library as a visitor Mon.-Fri. 8:30-5:15 with a photo ID.

Online Access to Articles, Databases, eBooks, and More

Getting to content paid for by the GSU library:

Tutorial for Navigating the GSU Library's Home Page

To get the most out of the resources that the library provides, start your research from this guide or from the library homepage rather than from the open web.

Campus ID and Password:

To access most of the library resources off-campus, you will be prompted to login with your campus ID and password. On the web, campus ID info can be obtained at or call 404-413-4357.


Since most of the library’s content is authenticated with your campus ID and password, you will rarely need the GALILEO password. In case you do need the GALILEO password, you can find it by logging into iCollege. After logging in, you will see the password in the left column.  You can also find the GALILEO password by logging into your library account. Once your account is open, click the request button in the upper navigation bar.  The GALILEO password will be displayed.
