  • Enter the complete number under the barcode on back of your UGA ID card or your 9-digit 810 number
  • If you have not gotten a PIN (personal identification number) enter your last name, and click "Get my PIN."  A PIN will be emailed immediately to the email address on file for your account (usually your uga email address - check your spam or trash folders if it does not turn up!)
  • Get your PIN from email, and go back to the login page.  Enter your barcode, last name AND PIN, hit 'Logon' and you'll get the Galileo password for the semester.

NOTE: The password changes every semester. If your library account is blocked due to overdue books and/or fines you will be unable to access the password. Contact Access Services at (706) 542-3256 if you have any trouble getting a PIN or getting into your account.
