You can borrow book from all 32 University System of Georgia institutions through a service called GIL Express.
First, search the GIL Catalog and find the book you want. Make sure you choose University System of Georgia from the dropdown menu. Click on the link to the catalog record of the book.
Second, if another university has the book, and it is not checked out, click on My Account at the top of the page to log in with your MyID and password.
After you log in, you will be able to click on the Request link. The book should arrive at the Library within four business days.
If the book you need is not owned by UGA or another USG institution, you can then place an ILLiad request, and we will borrow it from outside of the public university system. This takes longer, so be prepared to wait from two weeks to a month to get a book.
ILL will also get articles for you if we do not possess a print or electronic copy. They normally can email you a pdf within one business day.
If the results has a link that says '.pdf full text' or '.html full text' under it:
Simply click on the link and you will have access to the article.
If it does NOT have those links:
Click on the button under the result;
If we have access to article in another database, a link either directly to the article or to the online version of the journal will be provided;
If we don't have access online:
Click on the print link to see if we have the journal in print.
If we don't have a subscription:
Click on the InterLibrary Loan link and we will get the article for you (normally within 24 hours).
If you are off campus, you will have to log in with your MyID and password because you will be able to use GALILEO.
If you are trying to access it something through GALILEO, and it asks for money (OH NO), do not pay! First, make sure we don't have access to it.
1) Copy and paste the URL in the search box on this page: http://www.libs.uga.edu/proxy_url.html and click on the link the page generates.
If you still can't read it, contact your trusty librarian for help!
2) Chat online, email us, call us, or come to one of our libraries in person! http://www.libs.uga.edu/chat/

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.
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).
