If you are off campus and need access to GALILEO, see the GALILEO Password and Off-Campus Access page.
Many of the links on these pages go to subscription resources which are restricted to Oglethorpe students, faculty, and staff. To access these resources from off-campus you need the GALILEO password and sometimes the proxy password.
