Using GALILEO: Other Library Services

Introduction to the Online Resources of the UGA Libraries

GIL Express and InterLibrary Loan


You can borrow book from all 35 University System of Georgia institutions through a service called GIL Express.  

First, search the GIL Universal Catalog and find the book you want.  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 the link "Please Log in to enable GIL Express Requests".

After you log in, you will be able to click on the Place 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.

Citing Sources in Your Paper

The UGA Libraries keep Citation Style Guide web pages with examples of how to cite the most common types of resources using the most common styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, and more!)

For more information about APA style and formating, Purdue has a helpful website.

We also have site licenses for software that can help you manage your references. Try RefWorks if you want a web-based solution for managing bibliographies, and EndNote if you need more sophisticated options but don't mind always using the same computer.

Here are some other guides about Legal Citations:

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).
