Find the Book You Want at the Library

  1. 1. Find the Book You Want Michele Nicole Johnson, MLIS College of Coastal Georgia February 2014
  2. 2. Looking for a book? There are a variety of sources for finding books, both online and on the shelf at the library.
  3. 3. Access these sources from the library’s Information and Resources page at www.ccga.edu/library.
  4. 4. GIL-Find and GIL-Find Universal The GIL in GIL-Find stands for GALILEO Interconnected Libraries. GIL-Find (also called GIL Search) is CCGA's online catalog. The books you find here are available at the Brunswick or Kingsland campus libraries. GIL-Find Universal (also known as GIL-Express Search) lets you search all of the institutions within the University System of Georgia. You may request books from other USG libraries, and pick them up at your local campus library. GIL-Find and GIL-Find Universal are two separate searches. If you don't find what you need at CCGA, try GIL-Find Universal.
  5. 5. eBooks eBooks are available through the EBSCO Host Database, which you must access through GALILEO. You must create a personal user name and password at an IP-validated computer in the library in order to download eBooks. Once the account is created, eBooks can be accessed from any computer. See Librarian John Kissinger's helpful Research Guide on eBooks at CCGA.
  6. 6. JSTOR JSTOR is an digital library of academic journals, primary sources and books. You can access it the database through GALILEO.
  7. 7. ILLiad Interlibrary Loans ILLiad is the electronic system used to request items from other libraries outside of the University System of Georgia. The first time you use ILLiad, you must set up an account. You will need to provide basic information such as your name and address. The library staff is available to assist you with registration, making a request or following up on a request.
  8. 8. Georgia Public Libraries (PINES) If you can't find what you need through the college, try your public library. Most Georgia public libraries' catalogs are accessible through PINES, which stands for Public Information Network for Electronic Services. Once you have a PINES library card, you can check out materials at one PINES library, and return them at another. However, the borrowing period is shorter than the college's, so be sure to find out when your materials are due.
  9. 9. Nursing Books There are two sources for electronic books on Nursing – Ovid and R2 Digital Library. Both can be accessed through GALILEO. Check with a librarian if you need assistance.
  10. 10. Other Library Materials The following library materials may only be checked out for use inside the library: DVDs Journals Magazines Reference Books Microfilm and Microfiche Faculty Reserve Materials
  11. 11. If you still need help, call the Brunswick campus library at 912.279.5874 or the Kingsland campus at 912.510.3331 during regular hours. Help also is available through our Question Center: http://libanswers.ccga.edu/
