The five-campus libraries of Middle Georgia State University (MGA) provide access to a wide variety of print, electronic, and audiovisual materials striving to maintain a current collection that supports the curriculum of the University.  

Middle Georgia state Univeristy Library participates in GALILEO, the statewide library initiative.  GALILEO provides access to over 100 periodical and information databases and over 10,000 full-text periodicals.  Additonally, the MGA Library subscribes to more than 20 other online databases including the ACM Digital Library, CINAHL Complete, JSTOR, Project Muse, Criminal Justice Abstracts, et al., as well as hundreds of thousands of e-books. GIL-Find is the online catalog and searches the collections of the Middle Georgia State University Library as well as more than 13 million bibliographic records of all USG libraries.  

An interlibrary loan program and the statewide GIL Express program enable students, faculty, and staff to borrow books and obtain copies of articles not available at the Middle Georgia State University Library. Intercampus delivery of library resources is also available. Librarians work one-on-one with students and faculty in person at each campus, and virtually through D2L/Brightspace, chat reference, and by email. Group and individual library instruction sessions are available synchronously and asynchronously for teaching research, critical inquiry, and the use of library resources.

Each campus of Middle Georgia State University has its own library.  Hours vary by campus location. More information about library services is available by visiting the MGA Library website.
