Course Reserves

Materials that students need to use for courses are often put on reserve in the library. These materials are kept behind the desk. A bar coded ID or library card is needed to access them. Most must be used in the library; some, however, may be taken out for varying periods of time.

When you're not in the Library, you may find out what is on reserve for a particular course, by linking to Voyager ( and clicking on the Course Reserve tab.

Reserve Forms for faculty wishing to place materials on reserve may be obtained in the library or online from the Library Faculty Guide
