Finding Books

Use the "Catalog" tab  at library.gsu. edu to find books in our library using GIL-Find. The catalog also lists other materials in the library - including microfilm, dissertations, movies, music and special collections.

A Keyword search in GIL-Find is a good place to start if you are looking for information on a topic. If you have more specific information, you can also search by title, subject or author using the Advanced Search options.

 

Getting books from other libraries

Use the options listed below to find books that the GSU Library doesn't have available:

  • GIL Express allows you to request books from any University System of Georgia library. Search the University System of Georgia Catalog, find the book you need. GIL Express requests usually take between 3 and 5 business days to arrive.
  • You may also check out books in person from any University System of Georgia library or Emory University's libraries using your PantherCard.
  • If the book isn't available from a GIL Express/USG library, you can order it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Log in with your library ID number to place a request. ILL requests may take two weeks or more, so plan ahead.
