If you are a user that is associated with an institution that is part of the University System of Georgia (USG), you may obtain your institution’s GALILEO password by using your GIL account (your library’s online catalog). In order to access your GIL account, you will need to obtain a GIL PIN. To get your GIL PIN, follow these directions:

  • Select your institution from the list below. This will take you to the “My Account” section of your GIL Catalog.
  • Enter your library barcode number or institution ID number located on your institutional ID card.
  • Enter your last name
  • Click on the “Get My PIN” link. A temporary PIN will be immediately emailed to you.
  • Once you have received your temporary PIN, go back to your GIL account and log in.

Your PIN will be received via email so your library account must have a valid, current email address. If you receive an error message stating your account is expired or invalid, you will need to contact your Circulation Desk to verify your information. If you do not have access to email, contact the Circulation Desk to receive a PIN.
