Course reserves are kept at the Customer Service Desk at each Library location.

To request an item from the collection:

  • visit the Customer Service Desk 
  • present a valid ONE Card (Student ID)
  • provide the title or call number of the item (If you do not have this information, staff can look up items for you)

Faculty, if you anticipate high student demand for a particular resource because of an assignment, please consider putting the resource on Reserve (short term loan or in Library use only) to ensure access by all.
