Do LSB galaxies have globular clusters? If they do, how do the main features of these systems compare to the ones observed in other galaxies? What are the implications of these findings on the formation of the halo and the star formation history of LSB galaxies? These are the questions we are looking to address with this study. We present preliminary results of an ACS/HST survey for globular clusters on massive LSB galaxies.
