The GIL Express system allows patrons at all University System of Georgia schools to borrow books from other schools in that system. The request system for GIL Express is much like the on-campus delivery system with some key differences.
To begin, log into your account. Then, when you are ready to search, click on the pull down menu next to the search box and choose "University System of Georgia" to search all public university libraries in the state of Georgia.
When you do your search, pay attention to the holdings of the item. For instance, the item the arrow is pointing to in the picture below is at UGA, but also at other libraries.
In the case of this item, the copy at UGA does not circulate. In that case, click on the "Get It" tab, then click on "More Libraries".
You will now have the option to choose which library you want to request this item from. Click on the link to the university you want to request from.
But there will also be instances where UGA does not own a copy of the item. In that case, the holdings will be listed like the record below.
When you click on the item record, and then on the "Get It" tab, this screen will appear. In this situation, you will need to click on the "More Libraries" link to see which libraries own this item.
You will then be able to choose which university you wish to request this item from.
Now, just as before, click on "Request".
Next to "Pickup Institution", use the pull down menu to pick "University of Georgia".
Then next to "Pickup Library, use the pull down menu to choose the "Music Library".
The "Not Needed After" and "Comment" boxes are not required. Now click the "Request" button.
If the request was successful, you will see this screen.
If you want to check on the status of your requests, click on "My Account". Then in the list on the left hand side pick the school you requested the item from. In this case, we requested an item from Augusta University.
When you click on the university, this page will appear. If you have any active loans from that university, they will be listed here. To check on requests, click on "Requests" in the bar on the left hand side.
This will give you a list of the items you have requested from that university.
