ENGL 1102 Fall 2016 - Shakespeare's First Folio - Dr. Higinbotham: Finding Books & eBooks

Checking out library items

From Georgia Tech

Your Buzzcard is your Library card. 

To check out items at the Georgia Tech Library, bring your Buzzcard to the Library Services Desk, located in the West Wing of the Library.

Regular check out for undergraduates is one semester.  Books will be due at the end of the current semester unless noted or recalled by another patron.

You are guaranteed use of your books for 21 days. If your item is recalled by another patron, please return it to the Library Services Desk by the new recall due date to avoid fines.

Books received through GIL Express or Interlibrary Loan may also be picked up at the Library Services Desk.

Visit the Graduate & Undergraduate Borrowing Privileges page for more information about borrowing from the Georgia Tech Library.
