Library and Learning Center

The Georgia Gwinnett College Library and Learning Center is the intellectual center of Georgia’s newest four-year public institution and is where information, learning and technology intersect.  It houses a fusion of digital and print library holdings and full connectivity for its users.  As the College’s center for activity, the Library and Learning Center serves students, faculty and the community-at-large as a resource hub, educational facility and common gathering space.

The Library and Learning Center is centrally located on the campus of Georgia Gwinnett College and design features include a campus archway and grand entranceway leading into one of the region’s most exceptional architectural designs.

Investment in the Library and Learning Center is instrumental as Georgia Gwinnett College works to ensure that students attending college here today, and those who will follow for years to come, will have the resources and skills to achieve their full potential.
