Library Renewal: GIL Express requests go through Interlibrary Loan starting Dec 1

Due to its migration to a new library management system, on December 1 the Georgia Tech Library will suspend the GIL Express direct-requesting service. Instead, all requests from University System of Georgia libraries will go through Interlibrary Loan, or ILLiad.

This change will remain in place until 2017, when the system will join Georgia Tech and partner Emory University in their move to an updated library management system and discovery platform. During this time the Library remains committed to delivering books from our loan partners as quickly as possible.

GIL Express items on loan will need to be returned by December 1 and cannot be renewed. In addition Georgia Tech faculty, staff and students may still travel to any of the libraries in the University System to borrow directly with their BuzzCard.
