GIL Express

GIL Express is a service offered at all libraries within the University System of Georgia (USG). The service is an innovative resource sharing initiative that allows students, faculty and staff access to all eligible circulating material at all USG libraries. GIL Express is available to all eligible patrons through an on site (walk up) service. All currently enrolled students and currently employed faculty and staff who are in good standing at their Home Library are eligible to use GIL Express.

Search for Books from Other USG Schools

By default, the new GIL-Find searches only Russell Library's collections. To search all University System of Georgia (USG) collections, change the scope of your search by selecting "University System of Georgia" in the dropdown menu to the right of the search box and clicking "Search."



Request Books from Other USG Schools

Any time a book in your search results is available from another USG campus, GIL-Find will let you know. If you are unable to obtain a copy of a book from Russell Library, you may request that the book be delivered from another USG campus to Russell Library for pickup.

To see which USG campuses own a copy of a book, choose "More Libraries" under the "Get It" tab. To request the book, you'll need to be signed into your library account first.

Renew Your Books

Once you are logged into your account, you will be directed to your "List of Active Loans," which includes all of your currently borrowed items.

To renew all borrowed items currently eligible for renewal, choose "Renew All."

To renew selected items only, check the box for each item you'd like to renew, choose "Renew Selected."
