The Course Reserves collections of the UGA Libraries provide restricted, short-term loans of books and other materials free of charge to support University teaching activities. The Course Reserves service is a free library service for instructors who wish to provide print and/or electronic access to assigned readings to a large number of students. The primary function of this service is to assure that students and instructors will have free, timely access to course-related 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.
