Getting the GALILEO Password

The GALILEO password is required to acces UGA Libraries resources from off campus and on some wireless networks. Go to this link to get it.

  • Type in your barcode number (either all 16 digits or 810... works)
  • Enter last name and PIN, hit 'Logon' and you'll get the Galileo password for the semester.
  • If you've never set up a PIN with the Libraries, you'll have to get one emailed to you first. Click on "Get my PIN."

NOTE: Password will change every semester and if your library account is blocked due to overdue books and/or fines you will be unable to access the password.

Article Databases for International Affairs

The peer-review articles UGA subscribes to are located in various GALILEO databases.  

These three databases contain the majority of research published in international relations and international conflict.  Google Scholar indexes some of the scholarly literature as well.

JSTOR : Access to back issues of selected, core journals in IR.
