Library Resources Overview
Students at the Cumming campus seek out the library as an ideal environment outside of the classroom where they can study, relax, and consult with a librarian. UNG libraries encourage and foster student academic success by providing diverse collections, services, and instruction.
The librarian at Cumming provides information services such as class instruction and drop-in workshops on topics such as research techniques, MLA and APA citations, and library applications. Reference assistance and research consultations are available with a librarian at the Cumming campus library. Scheduling a research consultation ensures a devoted block of time for your information need. Electronic reference service is also available via instant message on the Libraries' website.
UNG Libraries’ growing collection holds over 519,000 print and electronic book titles. Students have access to 340+ academic databases containing 114,997 full-text electronic journals, 178,000 electronic books, and over 19,000 streaming videos. These electronic resources are available 24/7, on or off campus with authentication. Technology equipment such as iPads, laptops, cameras, and recording devices for audio and video are available for checkout.
Additionally, UNG students may request print books from University System of Georgia (USG) university and college libraries statewide. Locating and requesting titles from the other USG institutions such as UGA and Georgia Tech is accomplished using GIL Universal, a shared online catalog. Materials requested from all over the state are delivered to the UNG libraries five days a week. Books may also be requested from other locations using Interlibrary Loan. Librarians are always happy to teach students strategies for locating and requesting resources.
Students find the library can be a quiet haven, or a place for group study, research, library materials, or surfing the Web. Events are hosted across all four campus libraries such as Dog Therapy, Banned Books Week, and Open House throughout the semester.
