Find Articles with Research Databases
Research Databases are best for finding electronic resources, including:
Articles from magazines, scholarly journals, trade publications and newspapers.
Research Databases can be searched in several ways:
Use the Discover search on the Library Homepage (or search box on the GALILEO homepage) to search many (not all) databases.
Browse by Subject allows you to select specific databases that best fit your topic.
Databases by Name A-Z lets you go to a specific database by name.
Journals A-Z allows you to find out which database has articles from a specific journal or if the library owns physical copies of the journal.

Find the GALILEO password on the iCollege homepage under "Library Resources."
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.
Switching GALILEO versions
Did you know there are different versions of GALILEO?
Your high school and the public library each have a different version of GALILEO than Georgia State. So how to you switch between them?
The secret is they each have their own GALILEO password.
When you log into GALILEO, you will see which version you are in in the upper right corner. To change, click "log in as another user" and enter the GALILEO password for that library. (See image.)
