New GALILEO Password

by Laura Wright on January 9, 2009 in Odum Library

Password Discovery Station located near the GALILEO Computers

The Password Discovery computer does not need a password, just hit Enter.

Firefox will open up automatically, taking you to the Library’s home page.

Select Anywhere Access, located in the left red margin.

Login with your BlazeNet username and password.

The current GALILEO password will be revealed! The password will remain the same through the spring semester. The password changes at the start of each new semester.

The sign makes it sound like a whole computers were wasted just for people to get a password. Glad I don’t have to go to the Odum just to get the password.

The machines utilized for the GALILEO Password Discovery workstations are older low-end computers that were spared from being sent to University surplus for disposal, because of being salvaged for the purpose of facilitating access to the GALILEO password.

Implementation of the GALILEO password login on the Library’s public workstations was done in an effort to ensure that the computers are reserved for the Library’s primary clientele, VSU students, staff, and faculty. At the same time though it was also recognized that the GALILEO password which changes quarterly, isn’t necessarily common knowledge throughout the VSU community. Thus the need for the GALILEO Password Discovery workstations.

Computer guest access for Library visitors is limited to the small group of machines positioned by the 2nd floor Reference Desk.
