Hi All! Here are some quick and easy steps on how to use UGA’s new library database.

How to Register

1. Sign up for a lilbib account. This will only take a few minutes and once it’s done, you’ll never have to do it again. Start by visiting www.libib.com. Type in your first and last name, your desired username, your email address, and your password. (Note: This does not have to be your UGA email and password) Then click “Start My Library” at the bottom of the screen.

2. After you’ve logged in, click on the blue person icon located in the upper right hand corner of the screen to add friends.

3. Underneath where it says “Find Friends” type “LGBTUGA” into the text box.

4. Click the “Follow” button beneath the lgbtuga.libib.com link.

 

How to Place Holds on Books/Movies

                  If You Are Trying To Place A Hold For The First Time

1. You must send a completed Library Waiver Form (see link below) to register before you place any holds on books/movies. This may take 2-3 days to be processed and must be processed before you can place any holds. You cannot continue in the process until you have completed this step and staff at the LGBTRC have added you to the LGBTRC Library database. 

2. Log into your libib account (after you’ve selected LGBTUGA as a user to follow, see “How to Register” for instructions on how to follow us) and click on “Following” on the upper right-hand corner of the page.

3. Click on the lgbtuga.libib.com link.

4. If you want to find books, click on the “LGBTRC Library” button, and if you wish to look at our movie selection click the “LGBTRC Movies” button.

You can search for the book/movie selection you want either by
-Alphabetical order
-Tag List
-Directly Typing Title Into the Search Box

5. Once you have found book(s)/movie(s) you wish to check out, click on the lock icon beneath the book picture to place a hold on your desired item(s).  If you have a token (an assigned password which is different than your login password) already, type in your email and token.  If you do not already have a token, click on the “need token?” button.  Type in your email address and a token will be sent to you.

6. Once you have received a token, type in token and email address to place a hold on your items.
