How do you request a book from another UNG campus?


Transcript Starts

How do you request a book from another campus?

Let’s say you want to read a print copy of the Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words.

Go to the UNG GIL-Find catalog and type the title in the simple search box. Make sure that you’ve selected the GIL-Find tab. Then click search.

A print copy of Thing Explainer is first in the list of results. Click on the title or the word “Details” to learn more about the book.

If this is the book you want, click “Get it”

You’ll notice that the only UNG library which has a copy is at Cumming and you attend classes on another campus. Just click Request.

Then use the pull-downs to select material type, how long you may check out the book, and which campus you want for pick-up.

Often there is only one choice to select. UNG Students have an automatic checkout period of 28 days for circulating print books, while faculty and staff have 140 days for these items.

You do not need to enter anything in the not needed after box.

Finally, click the orange request button to submit your request.

If you see that your place in the queue is 0, this means you are the first in line for this book.

It may take 3-5 business days for the book to reach your campus.

You will receive an email notification when it arrives at the library Information Desk on the campus you selected.

Remember to bring your Nighthawks card and let the person at the Information Desk know that there’s a book for you from another campus.

You can also request DVDs from other UNG libraries.

The checkout period for DVDs is one week for students, faculty, and staff.

Remember to return the items you requested on or before the due date.
