New GALILEO Interface

We are pleased to announce that on Monday, March 17, GALILEO (Georgia’s virtual library) will have a brand-new look. All of the 336 databases currently available will remain in GALILEO’s new interface, which is called GALILEO Scholar. You might have already seen this new look, which has been available for months as a “Preview the new, improved GALILEO!” link within the current GALILEO homepage.

Below are a few tips for using the new GALILEO site effectively.  The links will take you to the actual pages, using political science as a subject example.

Please ask a librarian whenever we can be of assistance. We’d love to help! 🙂

  1. When browsing for databases by subject (yellow tab), after you choose a subject category, the Subject Search page (blue tab) appears, which only searches the databases available statewide. To see a comprehensive list (relevant to this subject category) including the many more databases funded by Henderson Library, just click on the Articles & Databases tab on the blue/gray bar (after you have clicked on a subject category).

  2. The Search page (yellow tab) only searches the databases available statewide. (See #1.)
  3. The Databases A-Z page (yellow tab) gives you a comprehensive list of all of our databases, including those available statewide as well as those funded by Henderson Library.
  4. The Journals A-Z page (yellow tab) in GALILEO is a directory of electronic journals, but is not as comprehensive as the Electronic Journals A-Z page which is linked from Henderson Library’s website (blue tab at the bottom). Our own Electronic Journals A-Z is still the best place to locate full-text articles when you know the journal title you need.
