Course Reserves

What are Course Reserves?

Course reserves are items (textbooks, books, DVDs, articles) instructors leave at the library for students to check-out.  

     The details:

  • Not all textbooks are available as a course reserve. Check our online catalog or stop by the circulation desk to see if your textbook is available.
  • Textbooks/Course Reserves are for use in the library only. A scanner is available for copying.
  • Textbooks will not be loaned out less than 30 minutes before closing.
  • Textbooks must be returned to the circulation desk no later than 15 minutes before closing.
  • Overdue fees are charged for items returned past their due back time.
  • Removing Course Reserves from the library may result in penalties including fines, suspension of borrowing privileges, and student holds.
