The Course Reserve Service is responsible for maintaining and controlling required material selected by Georgia Tech faculty for students enrolled in their classes.  We work in conjunction with faculty to make these materials accessible and add or remove items from reserve as requested.  Class notes, homework solutions (old quizzes and exams), books, CDs, DVDs, videotapes, journal articles and book chapters are all components of Electronic Reserves.

The Electronic Reserves System provides online access to physical and digital copies of assigned coursework. Course materials for Electronic Reserve may be submitted electronically or in printed format.  Items submitted in printed format are scanned and saved as PDF documents for one semester only.  Items in electronic format are copied to a scan directory and uploaded directly to the web. Readings submitted for electronic reserves that are available through the library’s subscription databases will have a link posted rather than being scanned.* These readings are available electronically for your convenience 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Books, DVDs, videotapes and other items are readily available at the Library Services Desk.

NO HARD COPIES OF RESERVE READINGS OTHERWISE AVAILABLE IN ELECTRONIC FORMAT ARE KEPT AT THE DESK.
