Off-Campus Access to Library Resources
Current students, faculty, and staff of Oglethorpe University may access most of the library's licensed research resources from off-campus. Depending on the resource, you will use one of two access methods:
1. Use the GALILEO password. 2. Login to the library's proxy server.
Please contact the library if you are experiencing any problems accessing resources off-campus.
|GALILEO Password||Proxy Server|
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.
How to get the password:
1) Your Library Account
2) In Person
We are not permitted to distribute the password over the telephone. For more info, see the GALILEO Access Policy.
Oglethorpe's password changes 4 times a year: May 15th, June 14th, August 15th, and December 20th.
Off-campus access to some resources, such as JSTOR and ProjectMUSE, is controlled through our proxy server. If you are prompted to login to the proxy server, login with your last name and library barcode.
Your barcode is located on your PETRELPASS.
To login successfully, you must:
1. Be an authorized user (current student, faculty, or staff).
