Note: Using this feature will take you away from this subject guide.
Use the options listed below to find books not in the GSU library:
1. The GSU Library 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.
