Get Outdoors!

This Saturday is National Get Outdoors Day, an annual event to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun. GALILEO includes quite a few magazines with ideas, tips, and other information to help you and your family make the most of enjoying the great outdoors.

MasterFILE Elite includes many magazines with articles on your favorite outdoor activities, such as:

  • Backpacker
  • Camping Magazine
  • Field & Stream
  • MotorBoating
  • Outdoor Life
  • Parks & Recreation
  • Sierra
  • You can set up a journal alert if you want to be notified when a new issue of the magazine has been added to the database.

    You can also search MasterFILE Elite or other GALILEO resources for your favorite activities. Find ways to enjoy the water with articles on boating, canoeing, or fishing. Think about different ways to spend some time in the woods by hiking, camping, hunting, or birding. If you’re interested in navigation, geocaching or orienteering may be fun activities to try. Finally, for a broad range of tips and ideas, just search for outdoor recreation. Don’t forget to also find some great picnic and outdoor cooking recipes and tips so you can continue to enjoy the outdoors even while you eat.

    Some links may not work off site. Log in to GALILEO first for access.

    EBSCO Content Changes

    EBSCO is discontinuing three databases that were part of the GALILEO EBSCO package due to low usage and coverage in other databases.

    Insurance Periodicals Index has already been discontinued and has been removed from GALILEO menus. Please check Business Source Complete for comparable content. If you have links to this resource on your library site, they no longer work.

    The following databases will be discontinued on June 30:
    * Internet and Personal Computing Abstracts – See Computer Source, Information Science and Technology Abstracts, and/or Academic Search Complete for comparable content.
    * World History Collection – This was a subset of Academic Search Complete; check Academic Search Complete for titles from this collection.

    Please note that links to these resources will no longer work after June 30.

    To replace the discontinued content, EBSCO will substitute unique topical content.
    * Child Development and Adolescent Studies
    * Peace Research Abstracts
    * Race Relations Abstracts

    GALILEO staff is working with EBSCO to make these available and will announce when this content is accessible in GALILEO.
