Instructor and Course Text Reserves

Books may be held for your instructors by their own Reserve or by Course Text Reserve. They are kept behind the library circulation desk and are usually arranged by the last name of your instructor. 

You can find these Reserves by typing your instructors last name as well as the word     reserve    in the search box in the Library Catalogue.

Because Items on Reserve are in very high demand they cannot leave the library and may be borrowed for a maximum of 4 hours. If reserves are returned late, the late fine is .50 cents per hour.
