Using GALILEO articles saves you time.

Articles in databases in GALILEO are from reputable, reliable sources, often from peer-reviewed journals (not sure about what peer review is? This answer will explain it!). They also have abstracts, which are short summaries, to help you decide whether to spend the time to read the entire article. 

What that means for you, as a researcher, is that once you choose an article to read, you don't have to check to make sure that it is authoritative, accurate, up-to-date, reasonably unbiased and has enough substance to be useful to you. You can instead spend your time finding more useful, reliable articles and writing your paper.
