GIL-Find Universal Catalog

We are delighted to announce that the University System of Georgia Libraries Universal Catalog of books - also known as the GIL UC Catalog - is now available in the GIL-Find search interface. Just as the Lane Library GIL-Find interface offers enhanced features from the classic GIL catalog, the university system catalog works the same way.

One of the features you can use in GIL-Find when searching for books throughout the university system is faceted searching, which allows you to narrow your search by clicking on format, topic, time period, etc. GIL-Find also allows you to text yourself a citation, add tags, get suggestions of similar items, and more. Our previous announcement when Lane Library added the GIL-Find interface explains some of the additional benefits. The Universal Catalog will work the same way, yet offers you access to books throughout the 35 institutions in the University System of Georgia. You can try out the GIL-Find UC by clicking here, and there is also a link to it on the classic Universal Catalog page that is linked on Lane Library's homepage.
