WHAT ARE COURSE RESERVES?

Course Reserves are items which your professor has chosen for your course and placed in the library for access. These items can be recommended or required books/articles, study guides, textbooks, or sample papers. Some reserve items are available only in the library while others can be accessed online.

WHERE ARE RESERVES LOCATED?

Reserve items are held at the Information Desk on the first floor of the Business Library. You will need your University ID card in order to use them.

CAN I TAKE RESERVE ITEMS FROM THE LIBRARY?

Should the reserve item be a physical book or DVD at the library, you may use it for up to 2 hours, but cannot take the item from the library space. Some reserve items may be checked out for 2 or 7 days.
