For Students: What are Course Reserves?

Reserves are items your professor has put in the library just for your class. They could be readings to do outside of class, a movie to watch, or some CDs to listen to for a project.

For Students: How do I use a Reserve item?

Ask for your Reserve item at the front desk (Circulation). We will check it out on your record just like you were taking out a book.

You can use Reserve items inside the library for as long as you want. Just return it to someone at the front desk when you're finished.

If someone is already using an item you need, we ask that you please wait for it to be returned. We will never give the name of the student who is currently using an item, so no one will bother you. Your privacy matters!

Find your course reserve list

Course reserves are searchable in the library's online catalog.

Start here.

Choose the "Course Reserve" tab and use any of the pull-down menus to find your course.
