Course Reserves

The purpose of the Course Reserves collection is to ensure the availability of materials for use by students for which individual copies are neither available nor practical. Reserves may include library or personal materials and may be in any usable format. Materials in this collection may be used by all students. The service is provided upon professor initiation.

Course Reserves may be loaned out for 2-hour or 1-day periods (determined by professor). Reserves may be renewed one time. A reserve item that is returned late will incur a $1.00/hour fine. Reserve items that are lost or damaged are subject to replacement fees (determined by the library).

​For information about Course Reserves, visit our Course Reserves page.
