The GIL Express service, which allows UGA faculty, staff and students to request items from other University System of Georgia (USG) universities, is available within the GIL-Find Catalog.

When you search GIL-Find, you can either choose to search the holdings of just the University of Georgia Libraries, or the holdings of all USG libraries.
