How to...

  • Get the GALILEO Password
    • If you are researching off-campus, then you will need the GPTC GALILEO password. A new password is assigned each semester to GPTC students, faculty, and staff. Follow the steps below if you do not have the current password.

      1. Contact the Library or

      2. Visit this page to retrieve the password.*

      *You will be asked for your patron barcode. This is your 900 (student) number.

  • Get the Facts on File Username & Password
    • If you are researching off-campus, then you will need the GPTC Facts on File username and password. This is different from the GALILEO password since these databases are outside of GALILEO. Please Contact the Library (LRC)  at 404-297-9522, ext. 1850 if you do not have the Facts on File username and password.

      The Facts on File username and password does not change semester to semester as the GALILEO password does. Once you have it, you can continue to use it while you are still a current GPTC student.
