Borrowing Course Reserves

Students can borrow course reserves materials for short periods as an alternative to purchasing books. 

Use the search bar on the homepage or on the top right corner of this page to find course reserves.

Books & Media

Most materials can be checked out for two hours. You can book reserves in person up to one day in advance, including overnight checkout. In-person renewals are allowed if the item is available. Fees start accumulating immediately for overdue material.

Return items at the circulation/reserves desk from which it was borrowed. If the library is closed, you may drop them off in the outside walk-up book return bin in front of the library from which they were borrowed. Course reserve material may not be returned to the drive-up book return bin in Lot 1 next to the emergency call box.

Overnight Checkout Times

Finals, summer, intersession and holiday hours vary. Check library hours.
