How do I place an item on Reserve?

522 views   |   0 Vote this question as useful.   0 Vote this question as not useful.   |   Last updated on Jun 12, 2019    Reserves Faculty

  The types of items most frequently placed on reserve are:

  • Books 
  • DVDs

 Checkout period:

  • 2 hours
  • Item stays in library*

  Removing items from reserve:

  • Items can be removed from Reserve temporarily or permanently by their owners at any time.
  • Items that have not been checked out in two years will be removed from the Reserve shelf.

 NOTE: Workbooks and other consumables (items intended for one-time use) cannot be placed on reserve. 

*Instructors can make items available for use outside the Library; however, fewer students are able to access them and it is harder to keep track of the items.
