Asa H. Gordon Library's Interlibrary loan office is responsible for the resource sharing activities, consisting of GIL Express and Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
GIL Express: A resource sharing service offered at all libraries within the University System of Georgia (USG) that provides current students, faculty, and staff access to all eligible circulating material at USG libraries. The library users submit the request via the GIL-Find catalog. The ILL staff prepares items for pickup and also prepares items for return to the lending library.
Interlibrary Loan consists of the ILL Borrowing and ILL Lending units:
GIL Express is an innovative resource sharing initiative that allows students, faculty, and staff access to all eligible circulating books at all USG libraries. Patrons can order books, pick them up, and return them to Asa H. Gordon Library or any USG institution. See Instructions for Submitting a GIL Express Request. This service is always free.
Other types of resources, including journal articles or books not available in the USG system, may be obtained using the ILL service.
The ILL Borrowing Unit provides the SSU community access to resources from other institutions across the country when they are not available in Asa H. Gordon Library or USG Libraries collections or databases (eBooks, eJournals). See Instructions for Submitting an Interlibrary Loan request.
