Overview of Libraries

In Galileo, a library is like an electronic filing cabinet. There are many different types of libraries (e.g., test, Instructional Dialog, Intervention Group, etc.) in Galileo.

Galileo automatically creates libraries for Class-level users, however users can create additional libraries if they'd like. When creating a new library, a user will define who has access to the library and what type of access they will have.

  • Class: All the classes you have access to in a selected school will appear. Click in the checkbox next to the class(es) to which you would like to assign this library.
  • User: All the users will appear. Click in the + next to the icon to see users. Click the checkbox next to the name of the users to whom you'd like to extend library permissions.

Step 3 - Permission Level

9. Select Set Permission Level:

  • Read-Only - will only be able to view the contents of the library, use the content "as-is" and will need to make a copy of the contents to his or her own libraries to edit it.
  • Write - can edit the contents of the library and all other users with permissions to that library will see and be affected by the changes.
  • Results Only - prevents Class-level and School-level users from seeing the test questions and scheduling a test. Users cannot access details of certain reports, generate a test booklet, nor print answer key pages. This permission level is only available in the Test library.

10. If creating a District-level or School-level library, determine the user's access:

  • Access Level Only
    • Assigns this library to only those users who have the same user level as the library access level you selected (see Step 1)
  • All Users
    • Assigns this library to all users at and below the selected level in the district/school.
