There are two main ways to borrow books from other schools:

  • You can find a book using the Universal Catalog, which searches all of the University System of Georgia libraries, and use GIL Express to have the book sent here to you (most of the time, there are exceptions for Reference books, DVDs, microfilm, and a few other things).  For more information, see the official GIL Express homepage.

For a video that shows how to make a Gil Express request, click: Borrowing Books through GIL Express

  • You can request a book using the Interlibrary Loan Request Form.  Use this link to request books from outside the USG system. Interlibrary loans for books typically have a two- to three-week delivery time.  NOTE: Current textbooks cannot be requested through Interlibrary Loan.

If you want assistance finding a book or making a loan request, your Reference Librarian will be happy to help.
