Requests Failing in GIL-Find

Back in March, Sonya sent an email about patrons having problems requesting items through GIL-Find. It appears that it is still happening. Here is a screenshot of the problem. A patron will request an item be sent from another campus, and then when they press "submit request" an error message will appear. There is no reason for the error message. The request will go through if you use GIL-Classic.

Counseling Services

It's a stressful time of year for students.  The college has personal counselors on each campus, available when a student needs to talk with a professional.

There is a sign at the reference desk so students can find counselor contact information, but here's the information you you in another format. Our campus counselor is Marquita Johnson, phone #770-274-5166 or walk-in B-1306 (inside the International Admissions and Advising suite).

If Ms. Johnson is unavailable during normal business hours, students may call the access line at 770-278-1300 to speak with one of the other Perimeter College campus counselors.

If students (or anyone else) has an emergency need after hours or weekends, the number to call is 1-800-715-4225 for the Georgia Crisis and Access Line.

Tomorrow and next week I'm hosting an hour long citation help workshop. To help supplement the material for the class I created a guide that contains information on APA, MLA, and Chicago. It's published and findable on the research guide homepage.

Here is the URL for easy access though:
