Using Library Resources from Off Campus
Since most of the electronic databases and journals that we subscribe to must be restricted to Georgia Southern University students, faculty and staff, users from off campus must be authenticated before using those resources.
Your MyGeorgiaSouthern username and password are required for access. Refer to the GALILEO help page for instructions on how to configure your browser correctly. If your security settings are too strict you will have problems.
When you login to your MyGeorgiaSouthern account you should see a link for the Library Home Page (includes GALILEO resource) under the list of Library Resources.
If you search from the Library’s home page using the Discover search box you will see a message that you are a guest and need to login.
When you click on the link you are taken to the Library’s EZProxy server and you need to enter your MyGeorgiaSouthern username and password. Note that Firefox users may get a message about the security certificate but it’s okay to continue.

Books and other resources
GIL Express is a service being offered at all libraries within the University System of Georgia (USG). The service is an innovative resource sharing initiative that allows students, faculty, and staff access to all eligible circulating material at all USG libraries. GIL Express is available to all eligible patrons through both an on-site (walk up) requesting service and a remote requesting service. If you are located near another USG library, you may have Georgia Southern materials delivered there.
