Course Reserves Collection: Course Reserves

About Course Reserves

The Course Reserves Collection is located in the library behind the information desk. It allows faculty to place materials (textbooks, etc.) on reserve for students to use inside the library. These materials can not be checked out by students and removed from the library unless otherwise authorized by the Professor that placed the materials on reserve.

Students & Course Reserves

To use items from the collection, students must present their student ID cards at the information desk and request the course reserve item. Most items have a 2 hour limit for use inside the library.

Find out if we have your class textbook by searching the catalog, be sure to select the course reserves before you enter your keywords.
