Course Reserves

Reserves are items your instructor has placed in the library for use by your class.  The material formats vary from books, to articles, to movies.  Reserves may be available in as a physical copy for checkout or in electronic copy for viewing online.  Checkout times vary for each physical copy–ask the person at the main Circulation Desk for the checkout time for your reserve!

Finding Electronic Course Reserves

If your instructor has set up a link to course reserves in Blackboard, please use the link to access your course reserves reading list. The list will allow you to view the electronic resources placed on reserve by your instructor, and it will give you the call number and location of the physical materials on reserve for your course.

Finding Physical Course Reserves

If your instructor is only using physical materials, they may have chosen not to set up a link in Blackboard. In this case, please enter the course or instructor name in the course reserves search in Search It. Write down the call number of the item you need, and give it to the employee at the circulation desk of the appropriate library.
