Books and Films on Course Reserve

To access items on Main Reserve Go to the Main Circulation Desk 

  • Bring with you the the title of the book/film you need in the online catalog
  • Alternatively, you can look up the course or the professor's name in the online catalog which will list all items on reserve for that course.
  • If the Location is Main Reserve or Reserve DVD, give the call number and location to the staff at the Circulation Desk.
  • If the location is Art Reserves, it's on one of the tables in the Art Library. Use the chart posted in the art library to find the room that corresponds to the class for which the book is on reserves. 
  • Loan periods (4-hour, 3-day, or 2-week) have been set by the faculty member teaching the course.  Library staff cannot change them. 

Be sure you know the due date and time for the book. Fines will be levied for overdue materials.
