How to find textbooks and course reserves

Visit the Course Reserves search page in the library catalogue, to search items by instructor, course code, or course name.

Course Reserves are located behind the Library Learning Commons Circulation and Help Desks. Please bring the title of the item and your instructor’s name so library staff can retrieve the item for you.

Remember, you will require your current Student ID/Library Card to use these items. *All course reserves are not renewable.

I am a GBC Instructor, how do I place items on Reserve?

  • To place heavy-demand books, chapters, journal articles, or audio-visual materials on Reserve, instructors must fill out the Reserve Form (PDF) and each article must be cleared by the Copyright Librarian. Instructors are reminded to give ample time for copyright clearance. Further information is available on the Faculty Services guide.
  • For more information regarding copyright clearance of course reserves, please check CopyrightHelp! or contact Heather Buffett, Copyright Librarian at ext. 6947.
