Reserves Collection

Features of the Reserves Collection

The reserve collection contains items that have greater circulation restrictions than materials in the main library book stacks. Types of reserve materials include DVDs, videotapes, CD or tape audio-book materials, resources that are in high demand (e.g., test preparation manuals such as GRE study guides), and materials with multi-media components.

Course Reserves

In addition, materials assigned by faculty for specific class use are placed in the Course Reserves collection. Course Reserves materials include print and online articles, instructor-owned and library copies of books, video and audio works, and streaming video selections requested by instructors.

Textbook Reserves

Textbook Reserves include textbooks for every 1000-, 2000-, and 3000-level course offered in the current semester (lab manuals are not included).


Reserves materials are located in the Circulation Department on the 1st floor of the library. The Circulation/Reserves staff provides assistance to patrons seeking access to reserves materials.
