Currently enrolled GSW students, faculty and staff receive borrowing privileges via their GSW ID card. GSW alumni also have book borrowing privileges. The Library has a cooperative agreement with Lake Blackshear Regional Library and the Library at South Georgia Technical College. Patrons of these libraries should ask for a Cooperative Agreement Form from their library and bring the form to the GSW Library. Borrowing privileges can then be established.

Reserve materials are located at the Circulation desk and must be used in the library. Generally, the time period is for 2 hours. Overnight checkout of reserve materials may be allowed at closing time and they are due by opening time the following day. Faculty may set up reserves for a longer time period if desired.

Reference materials and Periodicals are for in-library use only. The majority of Government Documents may circulate and special arrangements may be made for Government Document material designed as non-circulating.

Books may be renewed at the Circulation Desk, online, or by e-mail. To renew online, you need to have your GSW ID#. Once you have logged in, you should see all the materials you have checked out.
