Getting Books from Other Libraries with GIL Express


Transcript Starts

Is there a book you want that isn’t available from the University of North Georgia Libraries? You still may be able to get it. 

In the GIL-Find catalog, just enter your search terms and change the search from UNG to the University System of Georgia.

Make sure that you are signed in. Click Guest, then click on My Library Account, and then UNG Students, Faculty, and Staff. Then enter your UNG username and password, the same ones you use to access your university email.

Now that you’ve signed into your account, go to your results list and click on the words Check holdings.

Choose an Institution that states available in green text.

Then wait for “Request” to appear next to Request options. Be patient, it take a few moments. Be sure to change the pickup institution to UNG and select the site for pickup. For future reference, be sure to remember the name of the lending institution. Once the request is submitted it will say Request placed, and as long as no one else has made the same request it will say your place in the queue is zero.

When the item arrives via GIL-Express you will receive a notification in your UNG email account.

Bring your Nighthawks ID card to the Information Desk and let the person there know you have an item on the Hold Shelf.

Requested items usually take 3-5 business days to arrive. Please note, most USG libraries will not lend items from their Reference, Reserve, DVD or eBook collections.

To learn more about borrowing resources from non-USG libraries, go to the UNG Libraries homepage. On the left side of the page move your cursor over Research Help. Then select Borrowing from Other Libraries.
