Faculty Services

Dear Newton Faculty,
We encourage you to make use of the Newton Campus Library, and hope you will encourage your students to do so.

Library Instruction
A librarian can come to your classroom to perform a basic research skills session or a session tailored to specific assignments or subjects. Faculty members may schedule a session for their class by calling 770-278-1260.

Please schedule your instruction sessions at least ONE WEEK BEFORE the desired date of instruction to ensure library staff scheduling and preparation time.

You must be present at any library session you have scheduled. If you are unable to attend the session with your class, please arrange for a substitute (another faculty member or full-time staff member) to attend the library session. Library staff cannot serve as substitute instructors. Faculty must also be present if library projects are assigned during class periods.

Please inform your students that they are expected to be on time. Latecomers are disruptive to the class and will not be admitted after the first ten minutes of the session.

Reserve Information for Instructors
Faculty who wish to place books or other materials on reserve should bring the materials to the library several days before they are assigned. Items must either be owned by the GPC libraries or be your personal copy. GIL Express & Interlibrary Loan items may not be placed on Reserve. The Library will make every effort to ensure the safety of personal Reserve items, but cannot be responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged materials. To request that materials be placed on reserve, a Reserve Request Form must be submitted. Please see our Copyright Best Practices statement for details on placing materials on reserve for your students.

Reviewing Materials Currently on Reserve
Please come to the Library to review the items that you currently have on reserve. The GIL-Find or GIL Classic online catalogs contains a list of reserved items available at the circulation desk. Please remind your students that they MUST bring a current GPC Student ID in order to view reserve items. Please call the Library at 770-278-1260 if you have any questions.
