Student Resources


In an effort to support students with their writing assignments, the MCoE HQ Donovan Research Library in conjunction with the course instructors and department heads, are posting information needed to assist students with their course writing assignments, research and briefings. This is not comprehensive and is no way a final means of information. Students are still required to consult their instructors and/or department heads for further information. For research assistance, our Reference Librarian can be contacted at the library's reference desk at 706-626-8663, or inquire via e-mail at:
