CSU Libraries: Research Help

"How Can We Help You?" Those five words sum up our mission. CSU Librarians answer reference questions and teach library users to make the most of print and electronic resources.

For Faculty & Staff


GALILEO stands for Georgia LIbrary Learning Online. Beginning in 1995, GALILEO is an initiative of the University System of Georgia that provides access to over 150 databases, which, in turn, index thousands of periodicals, including scholarly journals. Many of the articles located through GALILEO are available in full text. 

CSU faculty and staff can access GALILEO on or off-campus in several ways:

  • Log into your MyCSU account ---> Campus Information ---> Library (section)--->GALILEO

  • Log into CougarView --->Academic Resources (right column menu navigation)--->GALILEO link 

  • Visit: -----> GALILEO link (left side of page)

Databases Are Available to CSU Students, Faculty, and Staff. If you are not affiliated with CSU, you can still use our databases by visiting the library in-person. You will be able to log a library computer and be able to search. 

In addition to journals and ebooks, CSU Libraries offers many other databases in other formats such as:

  • Grove Music Online - music.
  • Films on Demand - video streaming service with over 15,000 videos covering all subject disciplines.
  • Research Library (ProQuest) - articles (newspapers, magazines & scholarly journals).
  • Science Direct - articles covering topics in the physical, life and social sciences.

For more research assistance, you can chat, text, email, call or visit the Service Desk at the Main Campus Library(706.507.8670) or the Music Library on the RiverPark Campus (706.641.5045).
