Placing Book Requests in the UGA Catalog

You can also Request books from a Library that can be delivered to other Libraries on campus.

First, Sign in to your Library Account using your MyID and password.  After you click on the link for the book, under "Get It," you should see a link:  "Request."



Choose which library you want the book delivered to and it will be held for you.  (You also can do this with books from other USG libraries and have them delivered to UGA).


Books and More

If you want to just search what the Libraries physically owns, like print books, DVDs, CDs, and other materials, you can search our Catalog directly.  Our catalog is called GIL-Find.

You can search by the title of something, the author, or something else.

Notice that each book record tells you where it is located (Main, Science, and Special Collections Building have the most amount of books), which floor it is located on, and a unique call number associated with the book.
