Finding Books

Books, ebooks, videos, and other materials at Ingram Library are listed in our online catalog. Select UWG Catalog below to search the items we have at Ingram Library (including print and electronic books). To find materials in the University System of Georgia catalog, do a UWG Catalog search, and then select University System of Georgia in the drop down box at the top of the results page.  You can request that items from any USG library be sent to Ingram Library for pick up.

If you live in GA, your UWG student ID will allow you to check out books from any of the University System of Georgia institutions.  You can also request books from other USG libraries be sent to UWG.  If you cannot get to a USG library, you can use ILLiad to request the item be mailed to you.
