Accessing GALILEO Off-Campus

OpenAthens is the login portal to GALILEO, a state-wide database of academic resources.

If you're off-campus, you'll be prompted to enter your TU username and password to log in to OpenAthens:

  1. Start at the Library Website, and click on the GALILEO search button in the middle of the screen.
  2. At the login screen, click on the first option: Thomas University-USA.
  3. Enter the same TU username and password that you use for HawkLink and Canvas. (NOTE: YOUR USERNAME SHOULD NEVER END IN @STUDENT.THOMASU.EDU or THOMASU.EDU)
  4. Logging in grants you access to GALILEO, where you can find articles, newspapers, photos, videos, and more.
