Kinesiology and Physical Education Graduate Students Research Guide: Off Campus Access

Accessing Online Library Resources

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

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
