Off Campus Users
Access to databases and other electronic resources from off-campus
All currently enrolled students, faculty and staff of Reinhardt University have off-campus access to all of the library’s databases and electronic resources. The library‘s Proxy Server allows authorized library users to gain remote access to these resources by using your Reinhardt ID number which can be found on your Eagle Card. Please contact the Public Safety Office at 770-720-5789 if you need a Reinhardt Eagle Card.
How do I use the proxy server?
When you choose a library database or electronic resource from off-campus, the proxy server will prompt you to enter your last name and your Reinhardt University ID number. Once the proxy server confirms you are an authorized user, you have full access to all the electronic resources and databases. Typically, you will need to only enter this information once during an online session. If you have trouble accessing the databases using the proxy server, please contact Joel Langford at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770 720-5585.
Do I need to know the GALILEO password?
No. The proxy server eliminates the need for the GALILEO password. The proxy server allows you access to all GALILEO databases and non-GALILEO databases provided by the library.
However, in the event that the proxy server DOES NOT allow access to the Galileo suite of databases, you can go to www.galileo.usg.edu and a dialogue box will pop-up to enter the current password. You can contact the Library staff at the Main Campus or at the North Fulton Center for the current GALILEO password. The GALILEO password normally is changed near the beginning of Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.
