Interlibrary loan services
- STEP 1:
Look for books or journals in GIL. Also check for journals in Electronic Journals. Requesters are required to exhaust all local resources prior to initiating an interlibrary loan request.
- STEP 2:
For books that are not available locally, request delivery from other libraries within the University System of Georgia. Search using the GIL Universal Catalog. When you find the book and are viewing its record, select "GIL Express Request" from the menu above to continue submitting your request for that book. Visit the GIL Express website for more information.
- STEP 3:
For journal articles, books and other items not found in steps 1 and 2 above make a request through our interlibrary loan system ILLiad.

Augusta State University (ASU) faculty, staff and currently registered students. Requesters must also be clear of library delinquencies. Because of the high demand in meeting ASU faculty, staff and student needs, interlibrary loan cannot be extended to nonaffiliated library users such as community card holders and alumni.
If you have never used our ILLiad service you must first register as a New User. Upon receipt of your registration the interlibrary loan department will verify your user status and approve/disapprove your application. Once approved you are responsible for your account activity (e.g. updating user information, renewing items, recalls, overdues, downloading electronic articles and your submitted request activity).
All contact with the requester is made through JagMail.
Complete and accurate information about the item being requested is essential. Abbreviations and citation errors delay the processing of requests. Requests for articles in a periodical must include: the complete title of the publication, the author and complete article title, the volume, date, ISSN number if known, and the complete pagination. Submitting an interlibrary loan request indicates that you understand and accept the policies governing interlibrary loan at Reese Library.
Reese Library is required to maintain a record of all requests made for copies ordered through interlibrary loan. In compliance with copyright guidelines, only five copies per periodical title (published within the past five years) may be filled in a calendar year. Requesters will be notified when this limit is reached. Items that have reached a copyright limit may be ordered through a document supplier. The requester will be notified about the item being available through a document supplier and the fee which will be charged. No item will be ordered without the requester's approval.
Reese Library attempts to, and usually does, obtain items at no charge to the requester. However, if it is not possible to obtain items free, charges may range from $10.00 to $25.00. You must state by adding a note if you are willing/unwilling to accept charges. All charges are the responsibility of the requester, with no exceptions. Faculty members must have authorization from their department chair to charge against departmental accounts.
Please allow 10-14 working days for receipt of interlibrary loan requests. Remember that this is an average turnaround time. Most requests arrive sooner.
The lending library establishes the loan period and other regulations concerning use of the item. The actual loan period of the item and any restrictions on use will be indicated on the item.
Requesters can ask for renewal of their item via their ILLiad user account. Renewals should be requested at least three days prior to the due date and are at the discretion of the lending library.
