Your professors may place certain required readings in the library’s reserve room to ensure adequate access for all students.

To Locate Course Reserves

  • Search the Course Reserves from the main library page by either course number or professor
  • If you require assistance searching the Catalogue to determine which reserve materials you need, help is available at the Research Help Desk.
  • Reserve items are shelved alphabetically by course name and number in the Reserve Room located next to the Circulation Desk.
  • You are welcome to read or photocopy your item within the room or check out your material for the designated loan period.


  • The loan periods for reserve items are variable, usually two to three hours, and this is determined by the professor.
  • Some reserve items may be designated Library Use Only and are not permitted to leave the library.
  • Reserve items are not renewable.
  • No Requests are allowed on reserve items.
  • You must show your library card to sign out reserves.
  • Borrowers are limited to three reserve items at a time.
