Q: Can I request books through GIL Express during the winter break?


GIL Express requests will be suspended from Monday, December 16, 2019 through Tuesday, January 01, 2020. All patrons (including faculty and staff) will be unable to make new requests through GIL Express during this time.

If you have books that are currently checked out through GIL Express, your books will be automatically renewed. You can still return books and pick up books that have been delivered until the library closes for winter break.

You can also visit other USG schools and check books out in person, and students from other USG schools will be able to visit the KSU Libraries and check books out as well. For example, Georgia Highlands students will be able to check out books at Johnson Library as normal.

Interlibrary Loan

Our Interlibrary Loan Office will be open and will continue processing requests until the university closes on December 20, 2019. KSU Faculty and Staff will be able to request books and articles through ILLiad. Students who are enrolled in classes for the Spring semester will also be able to request items through ILLiad.

Please note that the ILL staff will not process requests for books they think will not arrive before break. If they think the book you requested is unlikely to arrive before December 20, they will contact you and request the book once the university reopens in January. This is to keep the winter break from cutting into your loan period.

Owl Swoop/Intercampus Delivery

Intercampus delivery will continue to operate until the University/Library closes for winter break.

All requests will be processed in the order they are received once the Library reopens after winter break.
