Ask a Librarian

chat is offline


All GHC students, faculty, and staff  have access to all the University System of Georgia libraries, both in person and by remote request (aka GIL Express). To find books at these libraries, you can search the GHC GIL Catalog and choose "University of System of Georgia" from the drop-down menu. 

Please Note:

  • You may check the status of your request under “My Account” by selecting the lending library (in a list on side menu) and viewing “Requests." 
  • Books usually arrive in about a week, but that’s not guaranteed.  Plan accordingly.
  • You may renew books twice. A single loan period is twenty-eight days.  
  • Please contact the library if you have any questions or to report any problems.
