Course Reserve

Course reserve is a collection of materials for use by students enrolled in a specific course. Students are able to check out one item per person with a valid student ID. The loan period is determined by the instructor, but is generally limited to two-hours, in-library use only.

Materials for the current semester are listed in the online Course Reserve Catalog. Binders with copies of course reserve lists are available at the Circulation desk.

Materials for reserve and Blackboard are processed Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. Materials received after 5:00 p.m. will be processed the next working day. Call Lisa Karle, x5396, at the library for more information.
