You can access Galileo, the university’s online library catalog by clicking here. Galileo contains the records for all material held in the Law Library and the Christopher Center library. Galileo indicates where an item is located; whether it is checked out; and, if out, when it is due back. While viewing the record of an item that has been checked out, faculty who have set up a PIN for their patron record can put a hold on that item by clicking the “Request” button.
Faculty can create and save “preferred searches,” and they can rerun any search simply by clicking on that search. If they select “e-mail notification,” they will be informed weekly on Tuesday of any items found by a preferred search that have been added to Galileo. For e-mail notification, go to “Your Patron Record” in Galileo and set up a PIN. (If you forget your PIN, contact Beverly Burmeister.) Then proceed to set up the preferred search, including e-mail notification, by using the directions “For VU faculty and staff only: Setting up ‘My Galileo’ and search alerts” posted under “Other Information ” in Galileo.
For help in using Galileo, click on the “Other Information ” option on the Galileo opening screen, check the short guides offered under each search type within Galileo, or contact your library liaison.
