The extensive resources of GALILEO (http://www.galileo.usg.edu/) are available to all students taking eCore classes. GALILEO stands for Georgia Library Learning Online. As a world wide web-based virtual library, it provides access to multiple information resources, including secured access to licensed products. Students have access to over 100 databases indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. Over 2000 journal titles are provided in full-text. Other resources include encyclopedias, business directories, and government publications.

GALILEO Interconnected Libraries, or GIL, is an extension of GALILEO designed to enhance and expand educational opportunities. GIL provides students, faculty, and staff expanded access to the information resources of the University System's Libraries by offering a gateway to information resources held in the University System of Georgia (USG) libraries.

GIL integrates into one system, which contains:

Students may initiate book requests directly from other libraries by using a computer or from within other libraries.
