Course Reserves

Courses Reserves upon faculty request.

Course reserves are a electronically-available collections of supplemental readings to which faculty would like students to have access. Faculty are invited to request specific materials to be placed on course reserves for a given term. Faculty should initiate communication regarding course reserves prior to the start of a term and to provide a list of readings. The librarians review all course reserves requests and for items not available in the library collections will determine if acquisition is possible. See the tab Course Reserves & Copyright for more details.

Online: If you elect to set up a course reserve, a password-protected webpage will be created for your course. This webpage will contain the list of readings. This list will be hyperlinked. The hyperlinks can be to a vary of locations depending on your reading list: to articles in the library database; to the library catalog which directs students to the books on reserve for use in the library; and to websites and video.

Instruction

Librarians provide instruction

Librarian presentations via video give your students a chance to get to know librarians and learn about library services and resources. Instruction includes information evaluation techniques and real-world searching skills.

Research Guides

Self-service oriented help - research guides

The GGU Business Librarians design and maintain research guides for faculty and students. The guides are essential tools (available 24/7) to help with the navigation of library resources and other valuable information sources. The guides are closely tied to GGU's curriculum and are generally subject oriented rather than based on a specific course. Research guide content provides answers to all the most common questions asked by students and faculty. The guides foster independent learning and match users' desire for self-service oriented support.

Use these guides to find case studies and required/supplemental readings. Direct your students to the research guides to complete assignments. The librarians regularly update these guides, and welcome input and recommendations.
