GALILEO stands for GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online, an initiative of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. GALILEO is an online library portal to authoritative, subscription-only information that isn’t available through free search engines or Web directories. Participating institutions may access over 100 databases indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. Over 10,000 journal titles are provided in full-text. Other resources include encyclopedias, business directories, and government publications.
The community of more than 2000 GALILEO institutions includes the University System of Georgia, the Technical College System of Georgia, K-12 schools, private K-12 schools, public libraries, and a group of private academic colleges and universities. At this time, only educational institutions are eligible to participate in GALILEO.
