Faculty Introduction: Reserves

Reserve Process

What are reserves?

Course Reserves function to help professors make certain items or texts available to students when they only need to read or use a section of a book. Due to their limited check-out time and Library Use only status, reserves allow more students the opportunity to access to a particular library item than normal checkout would allow (28 day initial checkout). Reserves can be Books, CD-ROMS, DVD’s, and electronic documents. 

For more information please see our How do I?...

Reserve process
