Reserves is a collection of high demand or specialized materials (including course textbooks) set aside from our regular collections. Users must ask for reserve items at the library's Information Desk.
Reserve material should be returned to a staff member at the Information Desk.
Reserve Services for Faculty
Instructors can ask for any item held by the library to be placed on reserve. They can also provide personal or department copies of resources for the reserve collection.
Reserves benefit students by ensuring that high demand readings are available to the maximum number of users. Reserves benefit instructors by providing control over materials and clear usage information.
