Q. How do I access the Ebscohost databases in GALILEO?

That one can use the EBSCO host service through the GCPL site is good to know, but this does not tell me how to access it. I have found no link to the EBSCO host site on the Galileo or library website, and my GCPL card # and the Galileo password do not suffice for the required User ID and password in EBSCO host.

Answer

Hello and thanks for your question.

Please follow these steps to gain access to EbscoHost databases in GALILEO via the GCPL website: 

  • Access our website at www.gwinnettpl.org
  • Hover over the "Digital" drop-down menu at the top of the page and click "GALILEO"
  • If prompted, type in your library card number and PIN
  • Click "GALILEO Main Page"
  • Before entering, you may be asked for the password, which is available through the "Click here for the GALILEO password" link
  • In GALILEO, click on the tab labeled "Databases A-Z"
  • Click "E" on the alphabet string or type "Ebsco" in the "Find Database" window
  • Once the list of databases appears, you can choose them individually

If you have trouble following these steps, you can call our helpline at 770-978-5154 or visit us in the branch.  We'll be happy to assist you.
