Google — A CODA Story

As a CODA, or “child of deaf adults,” Tony has always straddled two worlds. And now that he hasn’t been able to see his parents in over a year, staying close is more important, but also more difficult, than ever. But with the help of assistive technologies like Live Captions and Google Meet, Tony and his family are able to share the moments that matter most.

GALILEO for K-12 Teachers & Media Specialists

Marketing toolkit: We created a new toolkit, with available logos and logo guidelines, updated promotional tools, a link to where tutorials can be found and more. https://about.galileo.usg.edu/tools_training/marketing_toolkit

Logo/Logo Guidelines: Logos are on the toolkit, and the guidelines are here: https://about.galileo.usg.edu/governance/policies#list-item-4. Using a PNG file online is best, and we created a new GALILEO icon that can be used where a really small version is needed. Recommended logos for school/library sites are noted in the toolkit. But, if you want to use any of the others, that's fine if the colors are correct and the logo is legible.

GALILEO tutorials: As we update the GALILEO Search interface, we are also updating our tutorials. They have changed location, as well. You can find new videos, old but still relevant ones, and playlists for tutorials on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/GALILEOScrapbook. You can also find them in the training LibGuide: https://libguides.galileo.usg.edu/c.php?g=954809
