What’s the GALILEO password?

If you want to access library resources from home, you’ll need the GALILEO password. This changes each semester, and you can find it when you log into Blackboard towards the bottom right of the page. You can also call or use the library chat box. Please have your 910 (student id) number handy and tell it to us.

Can I renew a book without coming into the library?

Yes! You can use the chat box or call us.
