Inst of Higher Education: Fall Webinar: Less Searching and More Finding: Interlibrary Loan & GIL Express

When We Don't Have What You Need

We're the largest library in the State of Georgia, but even WE don't own everything. When you find the perfect article or book and then discover that we don't have what you want, Interlibrary Loan will spring into action. They will track down what you need and get it for you for FREE. No kidding. This is true for dissertations found in ProQuest Dissertations & Theses as well. DO NOT PAY FOR LIBRARY MATERIALS UNTIL YOU'VE TALKED TO INTERLIBRARY LOAN. If you are going to throw money around, take librarians to lunch......

Books which we either do not own or are in use can also be retrieved from other University System of Georgia Libraries. This service is GIL-Express. It's free and pretty fast. You can get books (ONLY books) delivered to the USG library that is closest to you and the materials can be returned there as well. We take care of the rest.
