Houston County Public Library
If your public library participates in PINES, you can access GALILEO using your PINES account instead of using the GALILEO password by following these steps:
- Log into your PINES account
- Select “GALILEO Virtual Library” from the top navigation bar.
- You will be redirected to GALILEO and will be logged in as your public library system.
Note: If you do not have a PINES card and need access quickly or are not able to travel to your library branch, you can register for a PINES e-card.
If you do not have a PINES account, contact your local library to set up a PINES account and access your GALILEO password. If your library does not participate in PINES, contact them for more information about accessing the GALILEO password.
If you were previously provided a password, but it is no longer working, please contact your library to make sure you have the current password. GALILEO passwords change several times a year, so the one you are using may be expired.Password FAQs
Steps to Access GALILEO
GALILEO is free to all Georgians via schools, colleges and public libraries.
Find your school, university, or local library in the dropdown list and click "Go".
Log in. If you don't know your account/password, ask your librarian. (If you need a public library account, get one here.)
Start searching! A universe of resources - including databases, journals, ebooks, videos, and more - is freely available in GALILEO Search.
