Downloading eBooks to my mobile device

There are a number of eBooks linked in the library catalog that are readable on your mobile device. Some of the books (14000+), searchable on the catalog and in EBSCOhost, are copyright protected and have to be downloaded according to a specific protocol. This Libguide from another library will explain how the process works. (Please remember that this is an external link to another library.)

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

While users can access and use GALILEO on a mobile device right now, the interface is not currently optimized for the small screens of mobile devices. GALILEO is planning to launch a browser-based interface specifically for mobile devices.

In the meantime, you can access mobile versions of several GALILEO subscription resources from the URLs below. It might be a good idea for you to access these resources from your device and bookmark the accompanying GALILEO Express Link:

Finding Full-text articles from Citations

The old faithful path (maintained manually – not all journals listed)

Follow these links for Microsoft Word Documents listing available journals and years held

The GALILEO path (tutorial)

  • Log in to GALILEO
  • Choose “Journals A/Z”
  • Either browse or search for your title – if you find your title the icons will lead you to holdings
  • If you have a citation choose “Find Cited Article” on the left
  • Enter journal title or ISSN and article title / author / etc. information

The Google alternative

  • Google Scholar can also lead you to electronic journal holdings.
  • On the search page set “Preferences”/Library Links to “Richmont Graduate University”
  • Click in both boxes and save
  • Search for your article
  • When you find your article, if full text is available you will have a link on the right

What is the best method to use? GALILEO is good now and will eventually be the best way to go. If you are already searching Google Scholar then you will certainly want to have your preferences set and use the links. If you want print journals, then continue to check the link under option #1. At this stage you may need to use all three methods. If you still don’t find your article you can ask one of the librarians for help and/or fill out an interlibrary loan form.
