No, but you may be able to request a portion of the book through Interlibrary Loan or borrow a print version of the book. 
If another state school owns the print version of the book you're looking for, you can either pick it up in person from that school's library or place a GIL Express Request, and the item will be delivered to the GSU Library in 3-4 business days. You’ll receive an email letting you know when it has arrived.
GSU students can only use print books found at other USG schools through the universal catalog, not eBooks or databases. eBooks found in USG catalog searches are accessible only to patrons of those institutions, although some may be available to visitor on those campuses. Most licensing agreements for electronic resources exist between a publisher and a specific institution and only allow access to that institution's students, staff, and faculty. (Therefore, call first if you want to verify access to a particular ebook before traveling to another USG library.)
Another alternative is to request an interlibrary loan (ILL) of a scanned copy of a chapter or other small portion of the book. The ILL staff will do their best to locate the chapter you need, whether the original is print or e-book.
For more help, ask a librarian.
