Reserves - Student Use




  • Faculty place materials "on reserve" at the circulation desk to facilitate sharing of material among students. 
  • Most items circulate for 3 hours and must be used in the library
  • Faculty will tell you if something is on reserve or else list it in their course syllabus. 
  • We have a limited number of textbooks in the reserve collection not tied to a particular instructor or course.  You can always try searching our full catalog to see if we have your textbook available.
  • When you find your reserve item, you will need to tell the circulation desk staff the CALL NUMBER or FOLDER NUMBER to get the item.
