GSU Books by Mail

Books by Mail is a service for currently enrolled GSU students who are not taking classes at the main downtown, including EDB students. Regularly circulating University Library books will be delivered to your home address.

How to Request Books by Mail

Step 1
An account in the ILLiad system is required for books by mail service. If you do not already have an ILLiad account, login with your Campus ID and password and complete a new user registration form.

Step 2
Registration is also required with the Interlibrary Loan office each semester. To register for the semester, send an email message from your GSU email account to Include the following information in the message:

  • Your Campus ID
  • Your complete home mailing address
  • Your academic department
  • Your student status (undergraduate or graduate)

Registration messages from email addresses not ending in cannot be accepted. You will receive a confirmation email, usually within one business day.

Step 3
After registration, requests are placed through your regular ILLiad account. Please note: only regularly circulating books from the main University Library can be shipped to your home. Please check for availability.

Requested books are delivered to your home address via UPS, with a UPS return label and a list of UPS return locations near you.

Books can also be returned to any University System of Georgia library.

Books are checked out to your GIL account on the day they are shipped. The original due date is six weeks from the date of shipment for undergraduates, or the end of the current semester for graduate students.

Two online renewals are available through your GIL account for books not requested by another patron.

There is no charge for this service, but regular recall and overdue policies and fine rates apply. Books returned via UPS should be received at GSU by their due dates to avoid an overdue status. Books returned to another University System of Georgia library are removed from your GIL record on the date of return.

For questions about registering for the service, the status of requests, or UPS tracking, please contact us at or 404-413-2790.

For questions about due dates, renewals, recalls, and other circulation policies, contact the User Services & Technology Support Department at or 404-413-2820.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Instead of logging in with your campus ID and password every time you want to connect ot the library, you have the option of using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). The VPN allows you to connect to the university network from off campus and access library and other resources that are otherwise only available from on campus. Visit GSU's IS&T website for instructions on how to set up the VPN on your computer.
