GALILEO for Life: Georgia’s Portal to Lifelong Learning

08 April 2019 • Lauren Harding, senior marketing officer

GALILEO, the virtual library for the state of Georgia in the USA, entered 2017 with a vibrant and successful past, new leadership, and a strategic plan…that was last updated in 1995.

The vision

The GALILEO team, assisted by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, engaged its stakeholders in a strategic planning process. Through this initiative, our vision became clear: GALILEO facilitates the creation of knowledge and provides tools and resources for all Georgians to meet their lifelong learning needs.

Watch their case study

In order to support their strategic vision, GALILEO set strategic goals with authentication as a cornerstone for future service development and customization. Watch Russell Palmer, GALILEO Assistant Director, explore the team’s determination to actualize this vision, and the role OpenAthens will play in GALILEO’s future as Georgia’s Portal to Lifelong Learning.
