Russell Library offers access to electronic resources as an option for supplemental course materials. These can include journal articles, e-books, and streaming video available via Georgia College's GALILEO subscriptions and/or collections. A Reserve Form is required to process electronic resource reserve items. To facilitate the fastest workflow, please use the online Course Reserve Request Form to submit your Course Reserve requests.
Any items that are accessible via GALILEO and/or the library's collections may be linked from your course site(s) in GeorgiaView. Permalinks for articles, e-books, and/or e-book chapters are easily obtained and can be added quickly to your course(s). Students will be able to click the links and then enter their Unify credentials to obtain access to these items.
If you are interested in obtaining an article that is not currently owned/accessible via GALILEO and/or the library's collections, you may request it via the Interlibrary Loan page. Please see below regarding Fair Use guidelines.
If you are interested in assigning an e-book, e-book chapter, or streaming video that is not currently owned/accessible via GALILEO and/or the library’s collections, please contact a librarian, who can research our options for each item. You may find the appropriate contact by consulting our online list of Library liaisons.
Please note: Licensing new electronic resources takes time, and not all books or films are available for libraries to license electronically. If you are requesting access to an ebook or streaming video that is not currently available from Russell Library, you will need to submit your request no later than one month before the beginning of the semester in which you want students to use that resource. The earlier you submit your request, the more likely it is that your requested resources will be available to your students.
As always, whenever using supplemental materials for your course, you should determine that your use of those materials conform to Fair Use guidelines. To review information on determining Fair Use, please click the "Copyright and Course Reserves" menu option at left.
