Course Reserves

Course reserves are materials set aside by faculty to be used by students enrolled in a course. They are typically located behind the Library Services desk in the Learning Commons and have special use restrictions such as a shorter checkout time or  in library use only.

You will need to know the call number of the material so staff can locate it on the reserve shelves for you. Reserve materials can be found using the library catalog (will open in another window so you can follow these instructions):

  1. Hover the mouse over the Search tab in the upper left corner of the page, and select Course Reserves from the drop-down menu.
  2. Select the Courses button and enter the course number, course name, or professor's name. 
  3. Click on your course from the results list, then click on the title you wish to see. Find the call number under the section Find a copy in the library and give this call number to the person at the circulation desk. He or she will retrieve the item and check it out to you. That's it!

Note: All reserve items MUST be checked out to be used.
