GIL Express and Interlibrary Loan

GIL Express and Interlibrary Loan

What is Gil-Express?

GIL Express is a service available to faculty, staff, and students of the University System of Georgia. Patrons can request materials from any library in the USG, and have it delivered to the participating USG institution of their choice. The item will be loaned like a normal book, with all the rules that apply to borrowing a library book. Delivery times vary, but patrons will receive an email notifying them when they can pick up their requested items. This is a free service, and available as long as your GIL and library account are in good standing.
