If you come across materials you need for your research and the Library does not own it, you have a variety of options. For books, your best option is to check the GIL Universal Catalog, and if the book is in one of the University System of Georgia libraries, you can request the book through GIL Express and it will be sent to this library where you can pick it up at the Library Services desk. For articles and books, etc. not held in this library request the item through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service. These items will either be sent to you electronically through your ILL account or sent to the Library Services desk.
