Schedule an Online Research Consultation

Georgia College Librarians are available for online research consultations. 

What students can expect from a consultation

  • The consultations are one-on-one appointments with a librarian.  Consultations will take place via video conference (WebEx).
  • Librarians will help formulate search strategies, identify possible sources and suggest additional relevant library services as needed.
  • Consultations typically take 30 min to 1 hour.

What to have on hand for your consultation?

  • A copy of the assignment.
  • Research ideas and any work already done. (The more prepared one is for the consultation, the better our service will be.)

Returning Checked Out Items

Due Dates for Library Materials/Equipment

Russell Library faculty and staff asked faculty, staff, and students to hold onto the library items they had checked out when GC moved online in the Spring. All Russell Library and GIL Express items are due back on 8/8/2020. 


Hours and Availability

Russell Library is now open to receive returns of those items with limited hours. Our current hours through 8/11/2020 are:

Monday-Friday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Saturday-Sunday Closed

Any returns will have a minimum 3-day delay before they are discharged from library accounts, due to our returned-item quarantine. The quarantine time will not count against returned items and due dates, nor will there be any penalties for not returning on the due date of 8/8/2020, since it falls on a day on which we are currently scheduled to be closed.

In addition to the limited open hours, the third floor is not available to patrons. Should you find you need items located on the third floor, please contact Russell Library via the options listed below. Library personnel will gladly pull those items and hold them at the second floor Circulation Desk for checkout.

GIL Express and Interlibrary Loan

The GIL Express and physical Interlibrary Loan services have returned with some delays, based on availability of items in other libraries. Interlibrary Loan for digital resources remains available, with delivery online for those resources.
