What Are Reserves? Where Are They in the Library?

Faculty put items on RESERVE so that all students in a class will have the opportunity to review them.  Generally, these items are either the personal property of the faculty member or they may be the only copy available in the Library's collection.  Putting items on RESERVE prevents one student from checking them out, thus preventing other students from  accessing them.

RESERVE items are held at the Circulation Desk.  Students will need to present their student ID in order to check out these materials.  Usually the check out period in two hours for in-Library use only.
