Finding Resources

  • How to Search Databases
  • In addition to databases available through GALILEO, Pitts Library subscribes to nearly 50 GALE databases on topics ranging from pop culture to allied health. The interface looks different, but the same instructions for resource searching apply to these as those used in GALILEO and AndyCat.
    GALILEO Tutorials
  • These instructions also apply to Films on Demand, a digital video delivery platform with thousands of educational and primary source films.
  • Note that all database passwords can be obtained in Moodle student/faculty web resources, or by contacting a librarian.
