REQUESTING PDF SCANS
You can request pdf scans of book chapters and print articles which already reside in our collection. Simply fill out this form.
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.
UGA has a robust Map collection in the Subbasement of the Main Library.
The Map and Government Information Library's sheet map holdings include current and historical U.S. Geological Survey topographic maps for the entire US and its territories; topographic map sets for most countries at various scales; worldwide nautical and aeronautical charts; and select thematic, country and city maps from around the world with an emphasis on the United States and the State of Georgia.
