Reserve items are placed at the information desk by a faculty member for use by his or her students. They are filed under the instructor's name. Faculty members may check out a reserve item as needed. Students who wish to check out a reserve item must present a valid ID card. Restricted reserve items are for use in the library only, and the library will hold the student's ID card until the item is returned. One day reserves may be checked out and taken out of the library but are due back the next day. They may not be renewed and a fine of $2.00 per day is charged if they are not returned before closing time the day after they are checked out.
To see a list of items on reserve, click on Course Reserve Materials link on the catalog page. You may search under your professor's name to see what materials are on reserve for your class.
