Course Reserves

For Faculty: Access or submit course reserves

Loan Lengths

Reserves are available for either two hours or one day. Course reserve loan periods are determined by the professor.  Only two course reserve titles may be borrowed at any given time by patrons.

Two-hour Loans
All permanent reserve materials and most required course reserve readings are in the two hour category.  Two hour reserve readings may go out as an overnight loan if borrowed within two hours before the library closes each day and are due two hours after the library opens the following day. 

One-day Loans

Optional or supplemental course reserve readings may be given a one-day loan. These books may be borrrowed at any time during the day and are due back by closing the following day. 

Fines for reserve material are steep, so please be sure to return your material when it is due.
