Is GALILEO available on mobile devices?

Alternate Question(s):

Can I access GALILEO from my iPhone, Droid, iPad, or other device?


GALILEO’s search feature “Discover GALILEO,” the GALILEO Elementary user view, all EBSCOhost databases, and the academic version of the Encyclopaedia Britannica all have mobile device recognition and respond adaptively to provide mobile-friendly interfaces. Plans call for the Scholar, Library, High School, and Teen GALILEO user views to also offer mobile device recognition.

In addition, many GALILEO resources are mobile friendly or offer apps. It is best to access these resources from your device through GALILEO or through a GALILEO Express Link so that the vendor site recognizes that you are a GALILEO user. You can bookmark the GALILEO Express Link on your phone.

Express links to mobile interfaces include:

Not all of the above resources are available to all GALILEO participating institutions. To see a complete list of databases available by consortia, please see our database listings.
