The Course Reserves collections of the UGA Libraries provide limited circulation of books and other materials to support University teaching activities. The Course Reserves service is available to instructors who wish to provide print and/or electronic access to assigned readings, making them available to a large number of students. The primary function of this service is to assure that students and teachers will have timely access to course-related library resources. Course reserves are available at multiple locations on campus, including the Main and Science Libraries, the Curriculum Materials Library, the Art Library, the Music Library, as well as the Owens Library at the University of Georgia's College of Environment and Design.
