Current students, faculty, and staff of Oglethorpe University may access most of the library's licensed research resources from off-campus.

Please contact the library if you are experiencing any problems accessing resources off-campus. Be sure you are accessing GALILEO through the Philip Weltner Library webpage if you are off-campus.

GALILEO Password

Many GALILEO resources require Oglethorpe's password for off-campus access. You will be prompted if the password is necessary to use a resource. You may also enter the password in the "Home/Password Access" box on the GALILEO homepage.

To locate the current GALILEO password:

- In the Library Catalog, click the YOUR ACCOUNT link
- Type in your Petrelpass barcode and your last name. Click LOGIN.
- Your Library Account information will display
- In the top menu bar, click the REQUEST button
- The screen will read "Please choose your request" with "GALILEO Password" in the menu
- Click OK
- The password will now display

If you do not know your Petrelpass barcode, please visit the Circulation desk or contact the library staff.
