How to Get Course Reserve Material

  • Log in to the Ares Course Reserves System using your U of G Central login ID.
  • Click on "View course" to display both the electronic and physical Course Reserve items available for that course.
  • In the list of course materials, click on "Show Details" to get more information about an item.
  • Physical copies of course reserve materials will be available to borrow on a first come, first served basis in LIB room 109.
    • Physical reserve items may be borrowed on a 1 day (24 hour) loan.  These items are due back 24 hours after they are borrowed. 
    • Some reserve titles are available on a 3 day loan.
    • If you borrow a course reserve item, please return it to LIB room 109, not the book return bins.
