Finding Books

Search the Library Catalog to find books in the GSU library collections. The Libary Catalog also lists other materials in the library - including microfilm, dissertations, movies, music, and special collections.

An Any Field search in the Library Catalog 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, author/creator, or subject using the Advanced Search options.

** If GSU does not have the item you are looking for, try searching the University System of Georgia Catalog and requesting the item from another USG library via GIL Express. **

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 Campus ID and password to place a request. ILL requests may take two weeks or more, so plan ahead.
