Reserve Materials: Reserves

General Information

Course-related materials are placed on library reserve by faculty members for short-term use by their students. These materials may be supplemental or required and may include books, journals, articles, pamphlets, DVDs, lecture notes, or other materials.

Physical Reserves

Items in the physical reserve collection may be requested at the Library Services Desk on the main level of the library. Most of these items may be checked out for "in-library-use" for durations of two or four hours. Some have longer loan periods of one to seven days, as specified by the faculty member who placed the items on reserve.
