Step 1. Choose a database.

There are multiple ways in GALILEO to choose a database. You will find databases listed by subject under the Browse by Subject tab or by format under the Browse by Type tab. The Databases A-Z tab offers a comprehensive list of all databases offered or you can browse the list of databases alphabetically.

(Tip: For more help, see the FAQ, How to Choose a Database (link below)

Step 2. Search for your topic.

In the search box of the database you have selected, type in a keyword that best describes your topic. If you already have the citation of an article you want to find, enter the title or author of that article.

(Tip: If your search retrieves too many articles, use the search help tools available in the database to help you refine your search terms.)

Step 3. Get the article.

  • Full-text article - Print it, save, or e-mail the article. (Not all options are available in all databases.)
  • Citation and abstract - You may be able to find the print version of the journal in your library. Check your library catalog or consult a reference librarian for help.
