How is GALILEO different from the Internet?
GALILEO is a site on the Internet that manages access to a large number of resources. GALILEO is not a search engine like Google or Yahoo!, which allow their users to search sites across the Internet for information. Instead, GALILEO serves as an organized gateway to selected resources. GALILEO's licensed, commercial databases provide access to information of recognized authority: articles from scholarly journals and major publications, reference sources by major information providers, and other valuable resources.
