Georgia State University Library provides the campus with one of the most attractive, open and inviting educational facilities in the Southeast.
Georgia State University is served by two libraries: the University Library and the College of Law Library. The University Library occupies two buildings, North and South, bridged by a four-story glass link. Inside, a variety of technology services are provided and supported. Over 400 computers, plus wireless access, are available throughout the building. Laptops and netbooks are also available for check out from the circulation desk. The building includes 55 group study rooms, a 5th floor quiet study area, and a variety of other comfortable study spaces. With the implementation of the Discover search service, students can access millions of resources instantly, including the University Library's collection of books, databases, journals, periodicals, and government documents, with close to 300,000 e-books and 50,000 e-journals. Subject librarians are available to help students, faculty, and the community use the resources that are provided, with a librarian assigned to work with each of Georgia State's academic departments, assisting with discipline-specific research. In addition, the University Library's Special Collections and Archives preserve rare historical materials. A mobile version of the library’s website is also available, allowing students to easily check their library account, computer availability, the library catalog, and library hours. In addition students can ask a librarian for help through the Live Assistance chat service. Students can also phone, email or visit the research support desk for assistance. For information about the University Library and its hours, visit www.library.gsu.edu/ or call 404/413-2820. The College of Law Library is designed and equipped to meet the demanding research needs of students, faculty, and members of the legal community. With a collection of more than 164,000 hard-copy volumes and hundreds of online databases, the library provides legal research materials in various formats.
