Dean Mary Jo Fayoyin has been selected as one of the Digital Library Federation (DLF) HBCU Fellows. Formed in 1995, the Digital Library Federation (DLF) is a program of the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) that brings together a consortium of college and university libraries, public libraries, museums, and related institutions with the stated mission of "advancing research, learning, social justice, and the public good through digital library technologies."

The conference, which will be held in Pittsburgh, will focus on digital libraries and library-based teaching as a common mission and common ground between liberal arts colleges or programs and HBCUs.

Integrated Library System Implementation

This summer our institution implemented a new Integrated Library System (ILS). The most noticeable difference patrons will see is the new interface to our catalog. For more information on accessing your library account, visit http://library.savannahstate.edu/account-access.shtml.

Our patrons will continue to have access to GIL Express. GIL Express is a service offered at all libraries within the University System of Georgia. The service is an innovative resource sharing initiative that allows students, faculty, and staff access to all eligible circulating material at all USG libraries.

If you encounter any difficulties or have any questions or concerns with using our new system, please contact us at (912)358-4324.
