Course Reserves: Information for Students

Search Reserves

Reserve materials are listed in the "Course Reserves" section of the Library Catalog, which is searchable by course instructor and course name.

Materials placed on Reserve by instructors for use by students in conjunction with specific classes are housed in the Library's "Reserves" collection which is located behind the Circulation Desk.  Reserve materials range from photocopies of class notes to journal articles, and on rare occasions to course textbooks.  Circulation periods for these materials are determined by the instructor and range from two hours to one week.  Currently, only a very small number of Reserve items are available electronically so you usually need to come to the Library in order to use Reserve items. 

To see if items you want to find are on Reserve and available for use, go to Library Catalog, select Course Reserves and search by instructor's last name or course name.
