Galileo Password

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:
  1. In the Library Catalog, click the YOUR ACCOUNT link
  2. Type in your Petrelpass barcode and your last name. Click LOGIN. Your Library Account information will display
  3. In the top menu bar, click the REQUEST button. The screen will read “Please choose your request” with “GALILEO Password” in the menu
  4. 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.

We are not permitted to distribute the password over the telephone.

Oglethorpe’s password changes 4 times a year: May 17th, June 15th, August 16th, and January 3rd.
