Q. What are Course Reserves and how do I find them?
Course Reserves are required texts that the library makes available to students per the request of the course instructor. Materials in print are available at the Service Desk on the 2nd Floor, while electronic materials are accessed through the library website.
Course Reserves loan policies vary by item, from 2-hour in-library use only, to 1, 3, or 7 day loans.
To check for materials on Reserves:
Go to the library homepage and click the Course Reserves tab in the Discover search box
On the next page, select either Course Information or Instructor from the drop-down options, then type either the course code, e.g. COMD 7302, or your instructor's name.
- If a link is now visible, this is where electronic resources for your course are listed. Only your instructor can give you the password to access this.
- If you find books listed, take note of the location (1) and the Call Number (2) before visiting the Service Desk for borrowing.
