About Course Reserve

Course Reserve provides access to course readings and materials for the educational programs at Georgia Gwinnett College. They are print or electronic items selected by faculty for use in a specific course. Reserve items may include books, book chapters, journal articles, DVDs, professor's notes, sample quizzes, and/or other materials required for course work. These items are set aside for short term use inside the library (usually two hours) and are available at the library circulation desk.
