The GS Libraries support the University’s academic programs and the scholarly needs of students, faculty, and staff by providing information resources and high quality research services. The GS Libraries are a gateway to the Internet, electronic information resources, books, government documents, periodical articles, electronic books, audio-visual materials, and educational software. At the Georgia Southern Library, our goal is to provide the best service for our users and the information we have to offer. Come see for yourself.

Named for Mills B. Lane, prominent Savannah-Atlanta banker, philanthropist, and an early patron of the university, Lane Library was built in 1966 and substantially enlarged in 1975. The building was completely renovated in 2005-2006. Lane Library measures 50,000 sq. ft. and seats about 500. The space devoted to library services grew by about 25% with the 2013 opening of the Learning Commons in an adjacent renovated building. The Learning Commons seats about 250 and provides space and furniture for group learning activities. Both the Library and the Learning Commons feature group study rooms, Macs (21) and PCs (100), laptops that students can borrow, and Wi-Fi access.Off-campus library services are supported through the online services described above and by local libraries. Off-campus faculty and students have access to online library resources via the Libraries’ web page using their MyGeorgiaSouthern credentials. Off-campus students may also request materials that are not available in full text online by using the Libraries’ online fulfillment service.

The link to GALILEO was removed from the MyGS menu to ensure that all students, faculty, and staff have the best possible access to the full range of resources that the University Libraries provide. The libraries are better able to manage and support on- and off-campus access to all of our resources, including GALILEO, from Discover @ Georgia Southern and the A-Z Database List available from the library homepage.The Library Liaison Program was created to provide better engagement with academic departments and their faculty and students across campuses. Liaison Librarians are available for providing one-on-one consultations, giving special seminars, teaching library/Internet-use workshops, creating subject guides for disciplines and courses, offering individualized research assistance, locating resources, and collaborating with researchers on data management plans (DMP’s) for grant proposals.
