Library Services: Course Reserves

Course reserves are held behind the circulation desk. Library users may check out reserve items for 3 hours. If nobody has requested the item, it may be renewed for another 3 hours. Reserve items may not be held overnight. There is a 15 cent per hour late fine for reserves.  

To Find a Reserve Item

If you know the course number you may ask at the circulation desk for a reserve item. You can also search the online catalog by instructor name, course number, or course name.

Faculty can put either a personal copy or a library copy of a book or item on the reserve shelf. Please be prepared with the following information when putting an item on reserve: 

  • Instructor's Name 
  • Instructor ID 
  • Department 
  • Course Title 
  • Course Number 
  • Reserve Item Title
