Econometrics - ECON 3161: Finding Books

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 on the first floor 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 Desk.

Visit the Find, Borrow, Request page for more information about borrowing from the Georgia Tech Library.

From Other Libraries in Georgia

Items from other University System of Georgia (USG) Libraries and Emory's Main Library (Woodruff) may be checked out in person at these libraries using your Buzzcard.  Items from USG libraries may be returned directly to the library where they were checked out or to the Georgia Tech Library Services Desk.  Items from Emory's library should be returned directly to Emory.  

You may borrow items in person from other area university libraries including:

  • Agnes Scott College
  • Atlanta University Center
  • Brenau University
  • Columbia Theological Seminary
  • Emory University (branch libraries)
  • Mercer University (Atlanta Campus)
  • Morehouse School of Medicine
  • Oglethorpe University
  • Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta

Before you visit one of these libraries to check out items, you should visit the Circulation Desk at Georgia Tech to obtain an Inter Library User (ILU) card.  Items checked out from these institutions should be returned directly to the institutions.

Visit the Borrow from Other Libraries page for more information.

Books at the Georgia Tech Library

In order to search the library's holdings for books and other media, use the Georgia Tech Library Catalog

 

Using the GT Library Catalog you can:

  • Find books, electronic books, movies, journals, and more materials owned by the GT Library.
  • Log into your PRIMO Account to renew items, check your holdings, save items, request books from the Library Service Center, and more.
  • Look for extra information about holdings including a Table of Contents and sometimes Google Book versions of texts!

Books from Other Libraries

If you need a book that is not available from Georgia Tech or from the University System of Georgia, you can use the Interlibrary Loan System ILLiad to make a request to have the item loaned from another library. 

The time it takes to obtain an Interlibrary Loan item varies, so make sure to make your request early!

For more information about Interlibrary Loan please see Borrow from other Libraries and ILLiad FAQ
