Distance Education Services for Ingram Library

Getting resources through Ingram library

Ingram Library is dedicated to serving the needs of all faculty, staff, and students.  Off campus students have access to all the same services and resources that on campus students do.  In addition to our large collections of electronic books, articles, and other materials, Distance Learning Library Services will ensure you have access to everything you need in physical media as well.

First you need to set up an ILLiad account (first-time users go here) so you can have access to all of our Distance Education services.

For distance education students, the process is essentially:

  1. Do we have access to this item online?  Search for the item under the Books or Journals tab on our homepage.
  2. If not, request the item via interlibrary loan using the ILLiad system (under Library Accounts on the library homepage).
    • If we own the book physically, we can ship it to your address for free, including a return shipping label.
    • If we own the article/book chapter only physically, we can usually scan it for you to download through the ILLiad system.
    • If we do not own the item, we will get it either physically (books) or electronically (most articles & chapters) from another library.  Electronic scans will be delivered via the ILLiad system.

Distance Education Students who live near other USG Libraries, like the ones at Georgia Southern or Kennesaw State University, have the option to request books from any USG library be sent to a USG library near them.  Regardless of location, all distance education students can use ILLiad to request the item be mailed to you.
