What Are Course Reserves?

Faculty often place books, copies of articles and other items on Reserve in the library for students to use. This is a way to ensure that everyone in the class can get access to materials without having to purchase them as textbooks. Sometimes, this means that there are limited copies of an item or it has copyright restrictions. In some cases, a faculty member will allow the item to be checked out for a period of hours or even overnight. There is a coin-operated copier available in the library for those who want to make individual copies of the materials.

When you go to the library to request a reserve item, go to the circulation desk. The library staff member there will find the items you need. She or he  will ask you your instructor's name and/or the name of  your course. 

Even if you are only making copies of the material, you will need to check it out, so bring along your library card or student ID.
