*Tip*: Select the "More Info" button under the database name and brief description for a more detailed description of the database if needed.
Depending on the database you are using, articles may be displayed in different formats:
Off-campus access to the article databases requires a valid Middle Georgia State network account. Your log-in information is the same as your email username and password.
Note: Access to article databases is a privilege available only for currently registered students and currently employed faculty and staff.
The Library subscribes to many print magazine, journal and newspaper titles.
The most recent issues can be found on display in the magazine area on the second floor at the Macon campus Library. Recent back issues can be found in the same location behind the current issue (lift the shelf). Recent issues of some periodicals can also be found at other campus libraries. The locations should be indicated in the GIL-Find catalog results. Ask for assistance at the library service desk.
If you come across an article you need for your research, and the Library does not provide full-text access to it in print or electronic format, request it through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.
Articles will be electronically delivered to the borrower's e-mail account unless otherwise requested. ILL service is provided free of cost to eligible borrowers. Please review the complete ILL guide for additional information about this service.
In most cases, you will NOT need the GALILEO password.
You can also access GALILEO from off-campus by selecting the GALILEO link on the main MGA library homepage and logging in with your Middle Georgia State e-mail address and password.
Contact the Library at (478) 471-2709 if you have problems accessing library resources from off-campus.
If you don't know your Middle Georgia State e-mail address and password, please call the Technical Assistance Center at (478) 471-2023 or (478) 934-3319.
