Course Reserves

How to Borrow Course Reserves

Materials that a professor has placed on reserve for a specific course

1. Come to the front circulation desk to see if your professor has put your required course materials on reserve.

2. Look up your course in the binder by the professor's last name.

3. If the item is on reserve, ask the front desk worker to retrieve it for you and check it out to you.

4. Reserve materials usually go out for a limited amount of time (sometimes only a few hours), and some are required to use only in the library.
