Libraries Offer Course Reserves Services to Faculty for Spring 2022

Submitted by Camie on

UGA Libraries’ course reserve services allow faculty to enhance their instruction with additional readings and supplementary research materials, while cutting down costs for students. For faculty planning Spring 2022 courses, course reserve services and support are currently open, and requests submitted by December 3 are guaranteed to be completed and accessible by the first day of spring semester classes.

As faculty members prepare their spring course syllabi, UGA librarians can aid in the preparation of supplemental materials. Faculty members can consult with research and instruction librarians in their subject area ( to consider alternative materials prior to requesting reserves of physical or electronic versions of books and materials, including the scanning of journal articles and book chapters. For questions about the fair use of materials, refer to the USG Copyright Policy  or contact Mariann Samuel at  

The Libraries encourage instructors to utilize electronic course reserve resources, which can integrate with eLC. Electronic course reserves also ensure that students can access materials at any time. 

For faculty members who wish to reserve physical course materials to be held within a library location, options include a 2-hour, 1-day, 3-day, or 7-day loan period.  

Physical course reserves may be circulated from any of the following locations: Main Library; Science Library; Curriculum Materials Library (Aderhold Hall); Veterinary Medicine Reading Room (CVM Original Building); Music Library (Hugh Hodgson School of Music); Art Library (Lamar Dodd School of Art); Owens Library (College of Environment and Design); Carnegie Library Learning Center (Health Sciences Campus).
