About Course Reserves

At the Great Falls College Weaver Library, the course reserves collection consists of print and media materials available for students to check out at the circulation desk. These materials have been identified by instructors as key resources or supplemental resources to help students complete course work. This collection provides short-term access to high demand materials in support of courses offered at Great Falls College. Reserve materials are intended for non-commercial, educational use by students. If you would like to see a course material in the reserves collection, please speak to your instructor and encourage them to contact the library about course reserves.
