GIL Express


GIL Express allows borrowing of books from any University System of Georgia library. Books ordered through GIL Express usually arrive within 3-4 business days. When materials are processed and ready for pickup, an e-mail is sent to the patron.

How it works

  • Search the Georgia College Library Catalog.  If the book is not available:
  • Connect to Universal Catalog of Georgia and search title or subject.
  • Click the desired title to see if book is available at one of the University System of Georgia libraries.
  • At the top of the page, click the GIL Express Request link.


  • Select home institution from the drop-down menu, supply the Barcode number from the back of your Georgia College ID or the Institution ID (911...), last name and log into account.
  • Reenter Barcode or Institution ID.
  • Click Submit Request.
  • To check status of your request(s), log into My Account from the Georgia College Library Catalog.

Reasons a request may fail.

  • The title is available in the Georgia College library
  • The title does not circulate.
  • The title is checked out, on hold for another patron, or lost/missing
  • Patron record is blocked for overdue library materials, fines, or fees.  Check My Account.
