Eligible Georgia College library patrons may use Interlibrary Loan to borrow a variety of physical materials, such as:

  • books
  • DVDs and/or VHS video cassettes
  • sound recordings (CDs, LP records, audio cassettes)
  • microfilms

Patrons may also use Interlibrary Loan to receive digital copies of articles that are owned by another library.
