 Course Reserves

Reserves are the materials assigned or recommended by faculty to their students for class, and include books, articles, CDs and DVDs. Reserves are located at the Central Service Desk (CSD) on the 1st (main) floor of the library.

For safety reasons, print and physical reserve items will not be available through the Central Service Desk (CSD)  this semester. Please check your Canvas course(s) for Reading Lists. Instructors can utilize Leganto to offer "reserves" type functionality.

Good to know

Reserve items have the following limits, since they are high demand items:

  • They usually have a loan period of only 3 hours and may not be taken out of the Library. However, some reserve materials may leave the Library overnight if checked out within 2 hours of closing and returned the next day within 1 hour of the library opening. If this option is available, it will be noted in the reserve notebook (located at the CSD counter).
  • Some reserve items have a loan period of 3 days or 7 days and can be taken from the Library. If this option is available, it will be noted in the reserve notebook.
  • No more than 2 reserve items may be checked out by an individual at the same time.

Faculty: Please see our information on placing items on reserve for your course.
