Retiree Library Privileges: Home

Retiree Library Privileges

Russell Library provides Georgia College retirees access to library resources as a part of retiree privileges to Georgia College retirees, as well as employees granted Emeritus status by their Department, College, and/or the University. Retiree library privileges include access to materials in Russell Library's Circulating Collection of materials, as well as materials available from other libraries via resource sharing (Interlibrary Loan and/or GIL Express).

Retiree privileges do not provide access to GALILEO or online library databases and subscriptions. Due to content owner restrictions, those resources are only available to full-time university employees and students. While GC retirees are not eligible for access to Georgia College's GALILEO or other online library database/subscription resources, there are resources available to all Georgia residents through GALILEO via the state's PINES public library system.

Interlibrary Loan Privileges

Russell Library provides Georgia College retirees access to Interlibrary Loan privileges in order to borrow materials and articles related to research. This access is extended as a part of retiree privileges to Georgia College retirees, as well as employees granted Emeritus status by their Department, College, and/or the University. Retiree Interlibrary Loan privileges may be activated at any point after retirement from Georgia College.

To activate your retiree Interlibrary Loan privileges, please complete the form found online at https://gcsu.libwizard.com/retiree-ill.
(Please allow 2 business days for library staff to create the account.)
