GIL Express

GIL Express allows all eligible students, faculty and staff of the University of Georgia to search a single online catalog that includes the holdings of all 35 USG libraries and request delivery of eligible circulating books to the UGA library of your choice.

GIL Express items may be checked out for 28 days and may be returned to any University System of Georgia library. GIL Express materials may be renewed online two times through your library account.

Search the statewide Universal Catalog for books not owned by UGA. Visit the GIL Express website for more information on this service.

To pick up your GIL Express item at UGA, select Main, Science or CML (the Curriculum Materials Library in Aderhold). For your convenience, GIL Express items may be picked up or returned at any USG library.

Fines and Fees

Once an item becomes overdue, it cannot be renewed. One overdue book or $10.00 in fines will block your library privileges at all USG libraries, including UGA. There are no daily overdue fines for GIL Express items. Possible fines include recall fines, damage charges, replacement and processing costs for lost materials, and service fees charged by some libraries for billing costs. All financial obligations must be resolved with the library that owns the material.

UGA libraries charge higher daily fines for recalled items, and these fines apply to GIL Express loans. Your original due date may be shortened on any item that has been recalled.
