GCC Libraries (at main and North) provide an array of instructional support to faculty with our collections and services, including:
Library Reserves / Reserve Desk
Reserve items are a separate collection of specific books, periodical articles, maps, and various media items that are set aside for a particular course and are available for students to use in the library. These items are placed on Reserve by the academic departments and/or individual instructors.
Please see the Reserve Materials Form for additional guidelines.
