General Shelf Reserves Policies
Faculty often place on shelf reserve books, copies of journal articles, videos, CDs, and other materials which are heavily used by large numbers of students. The circulation period for these items is generally two hours or one day. Items on two hour reserve need to be used in the library. Materials can be checked out at the Reserves desk, which is located at the North end of the Circulation desk.
The basis for our reserve system is the Lawrence University Honor Code, which applies to the misuse of library materials as well as to plagiarism and cheating. It states, in part, that a student shall not "in any way intentionally limit or impede the academic performance or intellectual pursuits of fellow students."
When charging out reserve materials you assume responsibility for them until their return to the reserve desk, even if you loan an item to another person. When you return reserve materials, please return them to a circulation desk worker so we know that you returned your materials on time. Repeated late returns will constitute an Honor Code violation.
