ABOUT COURSE RESERVES

Course reserves are materials chosen by professors to support class instruction and made available in the library. Professors request or provide one or two copies of each item – typically books and DVDs – and they are available to be borrowed for a short period of time in order to provide access to as many students as possible. The materials are shelved at the Front Desk; most may be borrowed for 2 hours and used only in the library, others may be borrowed for 1 day. The borrowing period is determined by the professor.
