Articles and Book Chapters

If we own the book or journal, the request typically takes 1-3 business days. Requests placed on weekends or holidays will be processed on the next business day.
If we do not own the book or journal, our Interlibrary Loan department will request a scan from another library, if available. For items that we do not own, requests typically take 1-3 business days. It could take longer if the material is not widely held. Contact ILL with questions about this service at email@example.com or by phone at 706 542-0643.
Delivery of Books from the UGA Collection
If you are a resident of Georgia, you may use GIL Express to request that books in the UGA Libraries collection be sent to a University System of Georgia Library close to your home, where you can pick them up and return them. Delivery time between libraries generally takes about 3 to 4 days working days.
If you are not a resident of Georgia, you may request that books in the UGA Libraries collection be mailed to your home address. You must register each semester and complete the book delivery form for each individual item. You must sign for materials shipped to you. It is your responsibility to return the materials at your own expense using FedEX, UPS, or a similar carrier. Normal fees for overdue and lost items apply, so you should ship items back to the Libraries a few days before their due dates. This service does not include popular books, DVDs, bound journals, or reference materials.
If the book you request is not owned by the UGA Libraries, you’ll be prompted to log into your Interlibrary Loan account to complete the online request form.
Delivery of Interlibrary Loan Books
Many books owned by libraries other than UGA can be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
Eligible students and faculty can have the UGA Libraries’ Interlibrary Loan Department mail qualifying items to your home address. Please note that delivery time varies for Interlibrary Loan materials, and circulation periods vary as well, depending on the lending library. This service does not include textbooks, DVDs, bound journals, or reference materials. If you have any questions about this service, please contact ILL directly by phone at 706 542-0643 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
