When I enter my search criteria in Galileo and click on Search, I receive a message that states that I have logged in successfully instead of selecti
ns that I am searching for. I've logged out and back in, but cannot get the system to respond to my search.

Thank you for your question! It's a bit unclear exactly where you are searching on GALILEO, but I always recommend starting your research from our LibGuides research guides and going from there for the best results.
For example, to find articles on accounting, go to the Accounting LibGuide and click on the yellow Articles tab. You'll see a list of accounting-specific databases that are available via GALILEO, plus some resources that are not in GALILEO!
Choose one of the databases - let's say Business Source Complete. You'll immediately be prompted to enter your student information in order to verify your access, and follow the examples to type in your Brenau Email Username (the portion of your Brenau email address that comes before @tiger.brenau.edu) and your Six-Digit Student ID Number (not your email password). Then click Login, and you'll be taken to the database search page where you can successfully run your search! (This log-in will also be good for the next databases you view in this session, and it won't ask you to log in again.)
Of course, it's called "Re-search" because you search and then search again - when you are done in one database, go back to the LibGuide and choose another database from the list to run the search there. Each database is a unique collection of items that fit together like a venn diagram. While you might find the same article available in a few different databases, you will also find other articles that are only available in one particular database!
