Using the Library: Off Campus Access

Off Campus Access

Students, faculty, and staff can access Odum Library's databases and online resources from off-campus. There are several ways to authenticate (sign-in) and get to the databases and online resources. 

 

If you are using an on-campus computer you will be able to get into the databases and online resources without being asked for a password. If you are off-campus Anywhere Access, you will be prompted to log in with your MyVSU username and password. 

 

With the switch to OpenAthens, the GALILEO password is no longer required. However, it can still be located in your library GIL account.

Logging in From Off Campus

Students, faculty, and staff can access the library home page and GALILEO through the MyVSU portal. 

 

Directions:

 

 

  • Click on MyVSU, located in upper left

 

  • Log in 

 

  • On the MyVSU page there should be links to "Visit Odum Library" and "GALILEO Anywhere Access"
    • Click on "Visit Odum Library" to go to the library's home page
    • Click on "GALILEO Anywhere Access", and you'll be able to access the library's databases and journal titles.

Valdosta GALILEO

 

To access Valdosta’s GALILEO, you will need to log in via Anywhere Access 

 

Benefits

  • More articles and resources than GoVIEW GALILEO
  • Ability to access permalinks sent by librarians

 

Troubleshooting

 

We have found that logging in through GoVIEW often overrides any later attempts to log in through Anywhere Access.

 

If you are going to switch between GoVIEW and Valdosta’s GALILEO:

 

  • Access GoView in your browser’s incognito or private browsing mode
  • Clear your cookies and cache and restart your browser after using GoVIEW

 

 

Students, Faculty, and staff can click on any of the Anywhere Access buttons to log in and access the databases from off campus. 

If you click on  Anywhere Access and are prompted for a username and password, use your MyVSU username and password.
