Obtaining Books from Other Libraries

Use the options listed below to find books not in the GSU library:

1.  The GIL Universal Catalog, allows you to search and request books from any University System of Georgia library. To use, choose "University System of Georgia" from the dropdown menu to the left of the "Search" button. After you find the book you need, click the "Log in to enable GIL Express Requests" link to have the book transferred to the GSU Library. Requests take anywhere from 4-7 days to arrive at the GSU library.

2.  You can also check out books in person from any University System of Georgia library or Emory University's libraries using your PantherCard. Call the library before you go for information on their borrowing policies.

3.  If you still are not finding enough information, use the WorldCat database, which allows you to search the collections of libraries throughout the world. Books located in WorldCat can be ordered via the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) ILLiad system. To do so, first locate the book you would like to request in the WorldCat database. Then, log into  ILLiad with your library ID number (on the back of your PantherCard) to place a request. ILL requests may take two weeks or more to arrive at the GSU Library, so plan ahead.

Catalog Search Tips

  • Use quotes to search for phrases:
    • "public space"
  • Place an asterisk * at the end of a word or word stem to search for various endings of the word
    • politic* will search for politics, political, politician, politicize, etc.
  • Use AND and OR to narrow or broaden your search. Note: AND and OR must be ALL caps:
    • women AND female  to retrieve results that include both terms (may provide fewer results)
    • women OR female  to retrieve results that contain either term (will provide more results)
  • You can create more complex searches by using the words AND and OR in combination with parentheses. Note that AND and OR must be typed in all capital letters.
    • Arendt AND (women OR femin*) AND "public space" AND "political equality"
