Information for Students

Reserves or Course Reserves are items (books, articles, videos, etc.) that are placed behind the Circulation Desk for use in a specific course (or class). Usually reserve items are loaned for very short periods of time such as 2 hours or 1 day, so that an entire class has the chance to use the material. Reserves also carry fines that are much higher than the normal fine, 50¢ per hour or day depending on the type of reserve.

Things to remember when requesting a reserve item:
