GALILEO -- which stands for GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online -- is an online library portal to more than 100 databases, indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. Other resources include encyclopedias, business directories, and government publications.

You may access GALILEO through the Coastal College library's homepage. Off-campus access to GALILEO requires the GALILEO password. To get the password, you must know your Patron Barcode (your student ID #), your PIN and your last name. If you don't have your PIN, it will be e-mailed to you.

You will need your PIN to log onto your account online. This includes getting the GALILEO password, viewing the list of items you have checked out, renewing materials, making requests for materials from libraries or schools, and reviewing the status of requested materials.
