The Georgia Military College (GMC) Library supports students and faculty by providing access to library services through its collections and arrangements with community resources consistent with the degrees offered by this institution. The mission of the GMC Library is to ensure that students, faculty, and staff have access to and are able to be effective users of information. The GMC Library will provide curriculum-centric materials on the level of its reading public, will make available to all students, faculty, and staff the resources of the library, will assist in the use of these materials, will provide access to materials not located in the library, and will provide opportunities designed to foster lifelong learning.
GMC Library facilities include the 13,000 square foot main Sibley-Cone Library at the Milledgeville campus and six libraries at our other campuses. The six additional campus libraries located in Augusta, Columbus, Fairburn, Fayetteville, Valdosta, and Warner Robins are extensions of the Sibley-Cone Library. The Online, Madison, and Sandersville campuses are supported by the Sibley-Cone Library. The Dublin and Eastman campuses are supported by the Warner Robins campus library. The Stone Mountain campus is supported by the Fairburn campus library. Each additional campus library provides internet access to all online library resources and is staffed by paraprofessionals who assist students, faculty, and staff with the use of library resources. The Augusta and Columbus campuses are bring-your-own-device spaces and all GMC libraries are BYOD friendly.
The print collection in the Sibley-Cone Library contains over 36,000 volumes. The full-text, electronic books available online add an additional 90,000 academic titles. The periodical collection includes journals, magazines, and newspapers principally in online databases. Database collections include GALILEO, Gale, ABC-CLIO, Facts-on-File, and JSTOR. GMC students, faculty, and staff can remotely access GMC’s electronic resources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any computer with Internet access using the current database password. The GMC Library Homepage and Library Guides provide links to library resources, services, and contact information for all campus libraries. For assistance from the GMC Library staff, call, email, or visit your campus library. For research questions, the library offers Ask A Librarian chat service on the Library Homepage and Library Guides as well as through the Ask A Question form on the library homepage.
