Information for Students

What does it mean when a book's location says it's in "University Library Course Reserves, Circulation Desk"?

Course Reserves or Print Reserves are books and other items that are held at the Circulation Desk of the library and can be found by searching OSCAR. These materials have a checkout period which is shorter than those of regular items in order to ensure equal access to material for all students in a course.

Can I borrow materials from Course Reserves?

The checkout policies for materials on reserve are as follow:

  • Checkouts are 4-hour, 24-hour.
  • Users may borrow up to 3 reserve items at a time.
  • Items on reserve are available on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be recalled, or placed on hold.
Where do I find readings that my professor put online?

Also known as e-reserves, electronic reserves are scanned copies or electronic documents that are available to students registered in a course on Camino.
