Library Services

There are libraries on each of the Athens Technical College campuses where students can study and ask the librarians and staff to help them with finding and citing information for their assignments or for their general interests. Students can access online resources such as over 400,000 ebooks, over 30,000 streaming educational videos, and thousands of journal articles from off campus. The library houses books, including a popular reading collection, journals, newspapers, and videos. Students may borrow or use materials at any ATC library location with their student ID card.  Interlibrary Loan service is available to obtain titles from other libraries not owned by the ATC library. Students should contact their ATC library about borrowing privileges from The University of Georgia.

Most of the resources available to students can be located or accessed through the library's website and Blackboard. GALILEO (Georgia's virtual library) and Primo (your library portal) provide a variety of databases for students to use for research. For off-campus access, passwords can be found in Blackboard. Databases not accessed through GALILEO, such as the Learning Express Library feature a large number of practice certification exams and online courses and practice exams for a variety of subjects.

  • plug & play furniture

The normal checkout period for books is four weeks and for videos 3 days. Instructors may place titles on reserve at the help desk for a limited checkout period for their students. Students can manage their library accounts online to request titles and renew their materials to avoid late fines of twenty-five cents per day.
