Off Campus Users
Access to databases and other electronic resources from off-campus
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 Reinhardt University Eagle Card holders to gain remote access to these resources. 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 request a library database or electronic resource, 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 only enter this information once during an online session.
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 all GALILEO databases and the Reinhardt University databases.
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. You can contact the Library staff at the Main Campus or at the North Fulton Center for the current GALILEO password.
