libraryResearch Tips

Galileo and Berry together offer many useful resources that should prove invaluable to communication students. To access Galileo go to the Memorial Library and there will be a link on the desktop of each computer in the Library. Off-campus use of this database requires a password that can be obtained at the Memorial Library circulation desk by showing your student ID.

To access these databases from your dorm room (or a lab on campus), go to the library's “Online Research Resources,” from there you will see “Browse by Title: (A-Z).” This link will take you to a complete list of online resources with the web address for each database.
