Book Retrieval 

UGA students, faculty, and staff may place requests for books owned by the Main, Science, and Curriculum Materials Libraries in the libraries' online catalog, GIL-Find.

Login to your library account to request a book and choose a pickup location. There is a 10 book limit on how many books can be requested at one time. Once the requested 10 books are picked up, more books can be requested. There is no limit on the total number of books that can requested.

Pickup locations include the Main, Science, Curriculum Materials, Music, and Art Libraries on the Athens campus, as well as sites in Griffin, Gwinnett, and Tifton. You will be notified by email when requested items are available at the pickup location.

If a requested book cannot be found on the shelf, a search will be conducted for the item. If the book cannot be located during this search, the item will be marked 'missing' and the request will be cancelled. A cancellation notice will be sent by email notifying the patron of the cancellation.
