Shelf Reserves

Reserve materials are kept securely behind the circulation desk and may be requested from a circulation worker by title and class number. Materials MUST be checked out to be used.  Instructors designate reserve loan periods of one hour, two hours, one day or three days. Permanent reserve materials provided by academic departments and organizations are kept in the same location.

Fill out blue cards, available at the reserve desk or online, for all shelf items such as books, DVDs, CDs and articles and bring the items and cards to the circulation desk. The circulation staff will try to place materials on reserve within 24 hours of receiving them. However, during busy times, such as the first week of classes, this may not be possible. Please keep this in mind when assigning reserve readings to your students.

Personal items will be cataloged and receive barcodes and magnetic detection strips.
