Request Electronic Course Reserves

Need help transitioning from print to online course readings?  Please use the Course Reserves Form to make your request. 

We continue to be committed to making Course Reserves available to students in an online environment. As part of Georgia Southern University Libraries’s efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, physical Course Reserves are currently unavailable. We are working with faculty members to make alternatives e-versions available so that students may successfully complete their online course work. We will work as quickly as possible to buy electronic versions of texts and readings where possible. When e-versions are not available for purchase, your library liaison may help you to identify Open Educational Resources (OER) alternatives for your course.


Anatomy Models: While Course Reserves are unavailable, the library’s physical anatomy models are unavailable. Faculty/ Staff/ Students do have access to an online database with similar content:

Films for Course Reserves: We subscribe to Kanopy and Films on Demand and these streaming services can be used to supplement your existing course materials.
