Question of the Week: Repository

November 6, 2009 – 8:54 AM

What is the repository?

The repository is an off-campus storage facility where some library materials that are used less frequently are stored.  The UGA Libraries own so many books, journals, and other items (more than 4 million) that we can’t fit them all into campus libraries!

How do I request delivery of something from the repository?

You can ask at the desk at any campus library, or do it online.  In GIL, find the item you need and look at the full record display.  There is a link to the Off-Site Material Request Form at the very bottom of the page.


Materials are retrieved Monday-Friday.  Patrons are notified when materials are available to pick up from the library location they have chosen. Turn-around time is generally one day, excluding weekends.
