Course Reserves

Professors may place course materials on reserve for student use. Course Reserves are held at the Circulation Desk. Checkout periods vary but most are for two hours and are in-library use only. Please note: course reserve items that are turned in late will incur fines. For Electronic Reserves, your professor will provide you with a password for access. You may search for course reserves here if you are unsure if your professor has items on reserve.
