About Course Reserves:

Most materials placed on Reserve are selected by faculty as supplemental reading assignments for courses.  Typically these may be checked out for use within the library for only two hours at a time.  Some items may circulate out of the library for 24 hours to 1 week.  Because these items are under heavy demand during a brief period, the intent is to make them as available as possible to all the students for whom they are assigned.  Please note:  An Eagle Access Card is required to use all Reserve items.

Any assigned readings on Reserve are available to all library users.  Preference is given to the students enrolled in the course.  Borrowers not enrolled in the course are restricted to using materials within the library.
