Q. Georgetown doesn’t own the book I need. What can I do?


When you find a book in HoyaSearch that is not owned by Georgetown, you can request the book from another library by using our Consortium or Interlibrary Loan services.


Be sure to login to your account first, using your GU NetID and password. Then you will see your options for requesting.


If there is a Consortium Library listed under Availability, click on the library to see if the item is available.


a. If it is available at the consortium library, click on Consortium Request above.

b. The request form will open and be populated with all necessary details.

c. Click “Send Request"

d. Check for the green confirmation message: “Your request was successfully placed"



If the book is not available in a Consortium Library or no libraries are listed, click on “Interlibrary Loan Request.”

a. The Interlibrary Loan login page will open and you can use your netID and password to log in.

b. The book request form will populate with information from HoyaSearch, so just fill out your “Date Needed By” and click “Submit Request”
