GALILEO Toolbar!!

Posted by Laura Losch on September 2, 2009

Guess what rolled out from our good friends at GALILEO? A toolbar for use with Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. So in addition to that Google or Yahoo toolbar you probably have right this very minute at the top of your browser, this toolbar is actually helpful (as a side note: Google is often times very helpful, but not the first place for scholarly research!). Go ahead and look up, I’ll wait. . . . .well, do you have a Google or Yahoo toolbar at the top of your browser? Thought so!

This new GALILEO toolbar allows you to quickly search the GALILEO databases from anywhere on the Internet. So let’s say you don’t remember my research lesson from last school year and you go straight to Wikipedia for research information. Wikipedia tells you the sky over Georgia is always purple. . . .you can verify that information quickly by typing that search into your GALILEO toolbar! Boom – you get a verified, scholarly answer! (by the way the answer is false!)

This is the coolest toolbar ever! Keep in mind you have to be logged into GALILEO using our school’s password in order to download the toolbar. Stop by the library to get our password if you don’t already have it.
