Use Course Reserves

If your professor places an item on course reserve in the library, it means that the item is available for a very limited checkout period, from two hours to two weeks.

If you need an item on reserve, please ask at the Information Desk. Come prepared with the name of the item and your instructor’s last name.


You can now search the library catalog to see what your professor has on reserve for your class! Search by your course name and code (ENGL 102, for example), by your professor’s name, by item title, and by the department your course is in (Engineering, for example).

Use the Course Reserves Search or just click on the orange “Course Reserves” menu button within the catalog.



For information on placing an item on reserve for a class, see our Course Reserves instructions for faculty or fill out the Course Reserves request form.
