How Can I Use Course Reserves?

Get Your Course Reserves

Course reserves are located at the circulation desk.

Search for Reserve Items

To search for reserve items for your class, search in the library catalog for the course number (e.g. MGMT 358) or your professor's last name (e.g. Smith).

Textbooks and required are often placed on reserve and available for checkout, but only when the instructor has done so. Items can be checked out for two hours, one day, or seven days. The loan period is determined by the instructor. Two hour items must stay in the Library at all times.

Fines are one dollar per hour for hourly checkouts and one dollar per day for daily checkouts.
