Next, watch the Galileo video on the Articles tab. That will help you become familiar with some Galileo basics like saving sources, navigating the results list, and locating citations.

STEP 3:

The BOOKS (GIL-Find) tab is the best place to search for books. When you need deep, long-form information about topics like people or theories, books can be a great option.
