Finding Books

All the books, videos, and other materials at Ingram Library are listed in our online catalog. You can use the boxes below to search this catalog. When you find the book you want, click on the title to view that book's record.   For FALL 2020 we are operating a retrieval service due to COVID-19.  To request a book, use the REQUEST function in the online catalog.

If you don't find what you need there, you can try one of the other 35 libraries in the Georgia state system through the GIL Universal Catalog. You can find materials in this catalog to request through GIL Express

And if that's not enough, you can search WorldCat to see what is available at other libraries. We'll try to get what you need through Interlibrary Loan. (Since WorldCat is a subscription database, you'll need to get the current password to access it)

If you live in GA, your UWG student ID will also allow you to check out books from any of the University System of Georgia institutions in person.

You might also consider Georgia PINES, which searches public libraries in GA.

About GIL Express

GIL Express is a service being offered at all libraries within the University System of Georgia (USG). The service is an innovative resource sharing initiative that allows students, faculty and staff access to all eligible circulating material at all USG libraries. GIL Express is available to all eligible patrons through both an on site (walk up) service and a remote requesting service.

Scope: Printed books (monographs) that are normally lent for the standard loan period at the Holding Library are available to be borrowed through GIL Express.

Exceptions include, but are not limited to:

• Reserve materials
• Reference materials or other materials that do not circulate without special permission
• Materials housed in any Special Collection
• Bound journals
• Journal articles

• Popular or browsing titles that have a shortened loan period

• Material that the Holding Library designates as not eligible for GIL Express loans
