To find a book in the library, note its location and call number (highlighted in the image below). If Call Numbers confuse you, you are not alone! Just ask a library employee for help. (I've included a video below in case you're shy.)
Click on "Other locations" for more locations and other information.
If the item isn't at your library, you can usually request that it be delivered to the library most convenient to you. (See "Place a Request.")
You can request a book or other item physically located at another campus by requesting an "Intercampus Loan." This typically takes 1-3 business days.
Request books from other USG libraries by placing a "GIL Express Request." This typically takes 3-7 business days.
To place requests, click "Get It," log into your account, then follow the prompts. Be sure you indicate the campus where you want to pick up the item.
After placing your request, you can check your account to see the status of the request. You should also get an email if the request is denied (for example, if the book is not found on the shelf) or when the book is available for pick up.
